With tears dripping on his keyboard Andrew J. Bernstein Sports Editor at The Saratogian has penned a sob story of epic proportions at Embrocation Cycling Journal HERE. Seems Bernstein has taken offense to my criticism of him and his planning abilities. Whining that my complaints along with residents legitimate complaints were beyond “anything that any volunteer should have to deal with”
Ohhhhhh I’m so sorry. Did the spotlight I shone on your race upset you? Well what can I say? I guess you are more used to the admiration of your parents and Editor Bab’s. But I will take a moment out of my busy day to explain a few simple things to you.
1, You love cycling fine, I enjoy it my self. Unfortunately the entire west side doesn’t share your enthusiasm and doesn’t appreciate having their entire neighborhood in lock down so you can enjoy your expensive toys in traffic and pedestrian free streets.
2. Learn something about public relations you arrogant little prick. When people complain to you, address their complaints without your trademark dismissive attitude.
3. Buy a book on Thoroughbred racing as Sports Editor at The Saratogian you should at least know which end of the horse goes in the Starting gate.
4. Keep a close eye on your trust fund; you’re going to need it to support yourself.
5. The fact that you had to call your friends
“When I put out the all-call to my brethren in spandex, they responded like minutemen, letting the anonymous, online detractors know that they loved coming to our city to spend the day, race their bikes, talk to the locals and spend some money. There is value in bike racing to a community” shows the lack of LOCAL support for your hobby
I had to call on no one for support. They were more than happy to tell you exactly what they thought of you, without sticking a cattle prod up their ass.
6.And please Andrew cut the crap that you only organized this for altruistic reasons. Face it you have no credibility with the locals as a reporter so you organized this event to increase your standing and reputation among a select group of elitist cycling friends. As far as the money raised for charity that was just an afterthought to you and frankly a coin drop on East Ave would have raised an equal amount without the aggravation.
Please donate to Haiti Earthquake Relief
See Andrew, now I’m a charity too.
7.And Finally I do take exception to your criticism of me in regard to your biased reporting in the last election. You may not realize this, but prominent members of the Democrats for change bragged how they had you “in the bag”. Your love and fawning admiration for Commissioner of DPW Anthony “Skip” Scirocco and your refusal to report on any event that might hold him in a bad light was unprofessional to the point of being degusting.
Anyway hope to see you at lunch and keep that resume up to date. Something tells me, you’re going to need it
