The Sun's Arizin: Dylan Painter rides a tricycle

6'10" and a kids tricycle - a match made in heaven.

TGIF, 'Nova Nation! And what a Friday it is. The 'Cats are back at 7pm ET tonight, and please let me remind you that the game is on Fox Sports 2.

Check that ahead, and then sit back and enjoy the demolition of the Knights.
