I watched TV sports as a kid as a youngster. I remember going to Dodger Stadium to watch them play. Stand outsid the gate then the players would sign autographs after the game. Those were the days.
Later in life, it was pay for an autograph. Then years later it was, "Whaaaahhh, I want more millions"!
Sports just lots all it's glory and heroes when it comes to the pros, IMO. I really don't have any desire to watch the TDF anymore either! If anything, I'll buy the DVD then watch it when I get around to it.
I think it's funny when a fellow rider says he won't ride on the weekend cause he's watching football or any other sport. To each his own, but sports on TV can kiss my big brown butt, I'm riding my bike!
I'm not in a hurry to get back or cutting my ride short to watch a game on TV. Only way I might watch some sports on TV is if Gina slaps a big plate of tasty looking nachos in front of me and says, "I made these for you so that you can watch the game". But when they're gone, I'm outta here!
I'd rather ride my bike, what about you guys?
