My conversation with cousin Mo

Moishe: Macs are great they have a different set of problems, but it's easier to forgive them because they're better looking (I just got a MacBook Pro from work, and it's so nice)

ahhh....so basically computers are like women?

yes, precisely

Today's big TDF winner!

its Commesso! He actually stayed out of the gruppetto and was the final rider to finish with the yellow jersey group(speaking of T-mobile used Gonchar like a bitch, making him carry water up to the front after the final climb). I wonder if there is a special "best placed party boy/slight fatty" jersey for him?

I dont know about the Gomer Pyle haircut but I like what he has to say

I wont be commenting on the TDF ( the doping charges or the race itself) plenty of people got that covered but I liked this quote from Zabel ... he's got a 12 year old son who races the Jr. ranks, so he's got something to worry about besides his own paycheck.

"Cycling is perhaps the sport that is most like real life," the winner of six Tour de France Green jerseys continued. "Every guy can take part in it and be successful: Big, small, fat, thin - you see all of them in the field and depending on the circumstances, each group can put its own characteristics to use; for example, a lighter rider in the mountains or a heavier one in the sprint. And just like in real life, we have gangsters and honourable men, clever ones and dumb ones. Maybe that's why everyone loves our sport so much."
