I heard a funny in tonight's prime time TdF coverage; supposedly someone (probably the millionth reporter to do so) asked Johan Brunyeel "who is the leader of Team Astana?" His reply?

"I am!"

I don't know, they all look the same to me. I don't know why you'd be watching him, maybe Doohickie just really likes him or something.

We know it's not the guy on the far right. That dude gets more awesome chicks than any one guy should be allowed.

I've been following the race on the online tracker and watched parts of the first 3 stages online. No streaming media at work

And you should be watching him because he's gay.

That's a reason to watch someone now? I'd much rather watch a good porn video that's not about gays.
