puma-hummer, originally uploaded by Green Biker.

Ok, I realize that underground sporting events need sponsership right? They need cash, and Puma seems like an ok company. Puma sponsers one of the track teams in NYC, who happen to be messengers and involved in the world championships this weekend. No discredit to them. So whats with the PUMA hummer? Maybe its unrelated. It was just ironic to see this polluting beast parked very close to Club Warsaw last night, the spot which was gracious enough to host the World Messenger Championships opening night party and finals of the golden sprints. It sucks that car companies have to sponser BIKE races. What was nice to see is that this vehicle was hated by messengers from all over the world. It was a universal dislike for this unefficient, menace to our roadways. You could tell from the passersby. One person even wrote a comment on the truck.

It's not unrelated -- they had it at the Kissena Classic.

the truck sucks, but they use it to pull some massive trailer to support their team. saw it at the races this weekend. so it actually serves some sort of funtion. too bad that there isn't something less offensive.

PUMA and SPIN put that whole party together that night. too bad their goodwill was met with defacement of their work truck. That's the kind of thing that will make a sponsor question why they are supporting a community that don't respect them back. but they should get rid of that menace. The trucks not cool.
