MarioKart Ownage

I would like to begin today’s post by thanking my good friend Nick Warkentien.  It’s a good friend who can, without ego, remind his friend to keep humble.  Out of twelve races, I beat him at one, and that one was close.  I will say that on our second round of races, I panicked and picked a very slow vehicle, which really did me no favors.  Also doing me no favors that round: constantly getting shrink clouds while being half a lap behind because my bike was so daggone slow.
