Overheard

Dave Zabriskie, commenting on the finish-line crash into Ghent.

I am tranquilo. I wish everyone else would relax a little bit.


Tranquilo. You see this word often when PRO cyclists describe how they are feeling. Often it is translated to English as "calm", but a quick use of an on-line translator revealed that the Italian word tranguilo denotes a more complex feeling:

untroubled, philosophical, easy going, noiseless, cool.

As opposed to "I am Birillo," of course, too.
