    Is this Hermes?

    One of my FB friends shared a link to a jersey on this site. The photo at the top bears a striking resemblance to our very own Hermes.

    That's Levi Leipheimer of Team Radioshack (was on Astana hence the kit)

    Nah, Hermes looks like a fat old man compared to Levi. LOL

    I saw Levi at the TOC and he is, in a word, tiny.

    I think Yen was looking at the riding position and legs.

    I have more hair.

    Something I figured out long ago is that the ability to recognize faces is not constant for all people, and some people are exceptionally better or worse at it than average. I'm not very good at it. Which means I have trouble telling if the person in photograph A is the same as the person in photograph B. Which means, I tend to see similarities that others may not see, because I fail to see distinctions. Anyway, this can make for some awkward social situations.
