My husband & I are of the irregular crowd. We don't watch football, don't have a fav baseball or basketball team.
Come July 1st each year, or at least the past seven years, we have holed up in our home, shut the telephone off, accepted no visitors until the end of July. It's the TDF. Thank God for Tivo because we can now some type of semblance of a life and can fast forward through all commercials.
Here is Floyd Landis winning stage 17. Never thought we'd be cheering Phonak, but for us Americans, it is NOT about the team, it is about the athlete. These are the most disciplined athletes of any sports, and do not rival anybody (except a few olympic athletes we have here.) Lance should have won at least 5 ESPY's for Athlete of the Year, but alas, it is the US: Our priorities are different (it is more about who can tiptoe through a touchdown more creatively..)
So, here is Floyd with his AMAZING personal story, maybe his last TDF, nothing to lose, coming back after 8min down the day before, poised to hit his fav event, the 53mile (I think) time trial later today. OMG, the hospital where I work doesn't have OLN!!! I have to keep a computer up and running with the live commentary.
I must multitask while at work today! LOL!
