Parody Interview with John Cena

MTB Shorts got some real muscle in today’s post, because we’re interviewing wrestling superstar, John Cena*

Mark: Hi John, thank you so much for chatting to MTB Shorts.
John: Cool, cool. Thanks for having me around to discuss some cyclenomics!

Mark: Cyclenomics…interesting word. So how did you get into mountain biking?
John: I always used to ride my bike to school and eventually decided to become a member of the chain gang when I had spare time over the weekends, in between pumping iron and rapping with Vanilla Ice.

Mark: Do any of the other superstars do MTBing?
John: No ways! Those guys are always on the injured list. If they just see a bike near them, they freak and drop to the floor calling for the EMTs.

Mark: But if the other superstars did join you on the track one day, what would you do?
John: I’d give them an attitude adjustment with a little bit of a 5km shuffle and then taunt them by waving my hand in front of my face and saying ‘you can’t see me’!

Mark: Thanks for your time, John. Good luck for your future battles ahead.
John: It’s ah-right. I’ll be seeing you at Summerslam in…

*I cut him off. I’m tired of wrestlers always promoting the next big PPV event*

*This interview is entirely false, because we all know that John Cena is busy putting on his makeup for Monday Night Raw right now

Happy, Happy Holidays

From everyone at MTB Shorts: Happy, happy holidays peeps *Happy Easter to all the Christians out there; and Happy Pesach to our Jewish community* Hope you’ve all been enjoying the nice break away from work and spending some QT with your loved ones *obviously, on two wheels*

petrol-expensiveI know we’re all dreading the impending fuel shortage, but let’s try keeping a positive state of mind. We’ve experienced a global economy meltdown and a recession, but ultimately, we’re still here. We will make it through this Dark Age – where there is a will, there is a way. History has proved that humanity can survive through the toughest of times.

Now for some good news, I actually saw SABC Sport transmitting some footage from the Nissan UCI World Cup! I was so shocked that I actually saw something besides a PSL game and that shocking local wrestling, which makes WWE look like Golden Globe material. Nice one, SABC! Two thumbs up!

Keep safe and take care everyone!

WWE Cycling Helmet

A while ago, I mentioned that I was looking for a Scooby Doo bike for my eldest son, Michael, and couldn’t find one in South Africa. Well, this weekend, Hubby and I decided to take him to Toyzone to pick out a bike.

As expected, he ended up lost in the action figure section and we couldn’t drag him away without putting a Transformer toy in the shopping basket. However, it was in this section that I saw the cutest accessory for children – a red WWE themed cycling helmet.

hulkhoganMichael went nuts when he saw it and started doing some weird impersonation of a wrestler by shaking his hand in front of his face and saying, “You can’t see me!”

I replied, “You’re right in front of me, dear. I can see you!”

We ended up buying the helmet and a little blue bike for him. Hopefully, the cycling helmet is safe. After seeing all the wrestling carnage on TV, I assumed that they probably used a chair-shot as a testing basis for all their products, so it must be pretty solid.

Oh yes, and just to prove that boys never grow up – Hubby also came home with a new Formula 1 model car. Sigh.
