The French Suck

What is up with the French? Just coz they can't win at their own race they make up medical excuses to disqualify everyone else? Well at this rate, in January 2009 they will be able to declare a French winner to the 2006 Tour de France...Cyril Dessel, after they have disqualified 6 amazing riders.

Because the only croissant he ever had was one of those strange, gooey/chewy, microwaved ones they serve at Burger King with a slab of sausage in it?

I think this refers to the fact the the French just accused the #2 finisher in the TdF of Doping. I don't like the idea of doping but I do think the lab is biased and reports nonFrench blood as being doped.

C'est bete.......seeing as how the tests are done blind (numbers not names)......The french press may be bias, and the french labs may be somewhat incompatent at times, but i really doubt its some grand conspiracy....as if chirac and pound (even though he's not french) sit around drinking a nice bordeaux, eating cheese and bagettes thinking up ways to get rid of the non french riders......well thats as crazy as believing the americans made it to the moon........
