Beer it is!

(Spoiler alert)…

Liege Baston Liege….up and down and around in the Ardenne looking like winter has only just left the region. All the more reason to start and finish the day with a nice dark beer. We started out with Belgian beers, of course, since Phillip Gilbert was slated to take it…instead he just got to wave to his parent’s house and Dan Martin crossed the finish line (why must you dilly dally at the very end?) to, I’m sure, endless bottoms up toasts back in Ireland. Guinness it is!

Steve Schlanger and Paul Sherwin navigated the race for us. Ahem Steve, we didn’t need to know that Dan Martin couldn’t win the next race we get to watch because he fell. That would be La Fleche Wallone, which was aired over the last weekend, BUT WE DON’T GET TO SEE IT UNTIL THURSDAY. SUCKY, GUYS AT NBCSPORTS. Come on, just because you have never watched a bike race doesn’t mean you can’t figure out that one wants to watch them IN ORDER! Sheesh.

Anyway, Slainté, Dan Martin.
