I love drinking coffee on Saturday mornings. This is my favorite mug:

I bought a set of four in 2000, the year my cycling team was founded. There were four of us, so I kept one and gave the other three to my teammates. They were the “official” team mugs for drinking out of while watching the live (text) coverage of the spring classics on Cyclingnews.

In the ten years since I bought those mugs, Carl has passed on, Scott has moved to North Carolina, and Mark and I have become dads, so we don’t ride together as often as we used to. This mug reminds me of how much I still love those guys.
