This is Notorious BIG. He is one big individual.

I went to the grocery store yesterday and found this candy bar. It is also big. It is 5 pounds of HERSHEY’S delicious Pennsylvanian chocolate. Bear in mind, my hands are larger than average, so this chocolate bar is in fact enormous.

This is a picture from this weekend with my Bissell teammates Joao and Tommy Z. Joao’s generosity is big (okay, it’s also enormous) and Mr. Zirbel at 6’4″ could easily be described at big.

I went to a neon party not too long ago. These sunglasses are big as is the bubble I’m blowing. It quadroupled in size after the picture was taken, thanks to the six pieces of gum I’m chewing at the time.

I just got a mountain bike, which at 21″ and an extra-large is big. Additionally, it’s awesome. I’ve been dabbling on that for a few (i.e. a lot of) hours lately.


And speaking of big, this is big …at least for me it’s big.

    Nice BIG references. I live in Grand Rapids, home of Bissell, so your signing is indeed big news in these parts. Too bad you’re leaving, but the Cervelo team is awesome! Tear it up in Europe next year.

    Gangsta on the Cervelo test team. My God Man YOU are going to fetch bottles for Carlos Sastre. That is huge hommie. Remember that when the going gets tough the tough doesn’t come home. Or I shove my size 10 foot up the tough’s ass. Your a Killah
