    I just like hearing Phil Liggett say "leakygas."
    "Unless he was racing there was no way he could match my speed."

    Aha!! So Bianchi and Liquigas are each owned by the same colorblind dego!

    Anytime I see someone with a large head, they are referred to as Fredhead. My wife's family and the Rodriguez family are very close so it is a coined phrase in my house.

    That's not celeste. It's a very different color.

    Yeah, that's not anywhere near Pantone 12-5507
    It's closer to 14-0123.

    guys, guys ... anyone who knows anyone who's anyone who knows Bianchi can tell you that their definition of celeste can fall anywhere from "kid splitpea puke" to aqua "Exxon-Valdez" marine (yes those are patented color names now owned by Crayola). And when you're colorblind it all looks the same anyway. Geesh!!

    Oh and Fredhead!! ... I love it.
