Cyclist: I've never met a real, live governor!

Ken Magyar, an 88-year-old cyclist from Orlando, added little levity to a Florida Cabinet meeting on Tuesday when he announced to Gov. Charlie Crist: "I've never met a real, live governor before."

"Well, today is your day. I'm alive," Crist said to Magyar who was among those receiving a special resolution in honor Bike Florida, a nonprofit that encourages cycling across the state.

And then the white-haired cyclist complimented Crist's hair: "I wish I had hair like yours." And Crist answered, "you do."
