I remember a Sunday night in March, maybe about six years ago, when I was sitting in the Goose Hollow Inn on SW Jefferson with my friend Olly. Suddenly, around 150 bicyclists appeared out of nowhere. I ran outside looking for an explanation and one of them told me they were "Zoobombing."
Flash forward to last Sunday. Olly, fresh in from Toledo, our pal Pete and I were all sitting in the Goose again but this time only three Zoobombers passed by the tavern. What could be thinning their numbers? Maybe the cold weather is to blame or the economy (what can't be blamed on it?). Or maybe, after nearly a decade of terrorizing the West Hills on Sunday evenings, the whole thing has finally become passe.
Nope, that can't be it. The Zoobomb website and its forum are still up to date. Who knows. Maybe they were just having an off-night.
