Moral Dilemma: A Resolution

If you joined us yesterday, you found out that Tuffy recently faced a moral dilemma of epic proportions: what color helmet should he purchase for the 2006 bicycle racing season?

Option 1: Purchase the silver 2006 LaZer Genesis team issue,

or

Option 2: Purchase a special edition white 2006 LaZer Genesis as worn by Tom "T-Bone" Boonen and other dedicated followers of fashion.

What to do, what to do?

Tuffy thought long and hard about this issue. He consulted a fortune teller. He called Mario "The Lion King" Cipollini. He slept on it. He dreamt about it. He ran the question past his Magic 8-Ball.

Still, nothing could help him make the decision.

Actually, that's not true: Cipollini said, "Silver or white? That's an easy one, hombre!"

So, aside from Cipollini, nothing could help him make the decision.

Finally, a call to Fil Drummond provided a solution.

Tuffy: Fil?
Fil: Yeah?
Tuffy: What color helmet do you think I should get this year? Silver or white?
Fil: I'll tell you for $10.
Tuffy: Shut up. No, really -- what color?
Fil: $7.
Tuffy: You done yet?
Fil: Sure.
Tuffy: So, what color?
Fil: What color do you want to get?
Tuffy: White.
Fil: Well, then get white.
Tuffy: But here's the real question -- is a helmet a part of the team kit?
Fil: Yes.
Tuffy: Then I should probably just get silver, right?
Fil: Yeah. Plus, you could always wear one of your white helmets to switch it up once in a while.
Tuffy: Cool.

Just like that, ladies and gentlemen, we have your winner:
