Could Be Batman?

My friends have a game called "Could Be Batman". The rules are very simple: wherever you are, in a store, on the street, wherever, you look at somebody and ask yourself "is it possible that this person is leading a double life and has a secret identity as the caped crusader?" You then either declare "Could Be Batman" or "Could Not Be Batman." That's it. It is not entirely based on physical stature: that pencil-necked kid at Blockbuster who gives you attitude for renting a dumb movie? Could Be Batman. Your 6-foot mechanic who can't get your hood open? Could Not Be Batman.

A local bike/tri shop had a special sale for our tri team and I had a chance to try on the new Zoot Zenith wetsuit. It was very tight, but not in a constraining way. It simply hugs your skin very closely. The material is much thinner than the old style of suit and I'll confirm their claims that it feels much less restrictive. There is an unfortunate side-effect to the design however. You see, I rely on the thickness of my wetsuit to add some mass to my arms. This new high-tech thinner material doesn't do me any favors.

However, with the built-in look of armor plating and bright highlights, I felt - for the first time - that just maybe, I Could Be Batman.

(The Zenith is the first step towards creating my Abs Suit:
