Word to the wise: don't put your wallet under the driver's seat. And, if you happen to get pulled over for speeding on the way to the velodrome, make sure you're clear about what you're reaching for under the seat.
The gun-in-the-face screaming routine ("hands on the wheel, muthafuka!") can be daunting... if not pant-ruining...
My buddy and I went to the 1996 Summer Olympics to help cheer on Bauer, Barry and Eric Wohlberg. We had on cheesy Canadian shirts and were yelling at the riders as they road past. A Militia security guard (this was only days after the bombing remember) came by us and said "keep it down there, where are you guys from anyways Europe?" We looked down at our shirts and said "no Canada!" He then said, "see this gun, this isn't half the gun I took into Canada a couple of years ago, weez went 'unting". So I asked him where he went hunting..."Well, I was 20-30 miles deep in the heart of Canada and ya know what I found...nutt'n. Nutt'n but nutt'n"
I thought he was dangerous and he didn't even have a gun in my face like your story. Canada's not that bad, really. Maybe its just how we looked, who knows.
