Sigh…I mean seriously…sigh….Phil and Paul are back! Hooray! The excitement increased exponetially as a result (sorry Steve and Todd…maybe it’s the venues…) but we’re back in France and we’ve got the best commentators going, hands down, no one can beat the reportage of Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwin on NBCSorts, welcome back guys!
I’d make more comments about the Tour of the Basque country but truthfully I’m going to have to force myself to finish watching it. What’s with the motorcycle/helo background noise? It’s like listening to a baseball game being called in a dentist’s office. Switch to NBCSports and notice the absense of annoying vehicle sound? ahhhhh. thank you French TV god.
Speaking of suitcases of courage (valises de courage?), Fabian Cancellara is looking great at least mid race – kb Fabian, kb.
Wine pairing advice for the race – obviously a sauvignon blanc, give youself a sense of the dry, dusty, cold riding conditions…maybe a Sancerre, no, I think stick with sauvignon blanc.
