Did anybody catch today's (Sunday) OLN coverage of the Giro d'Italia? After the podium presentations, the announcers did a final round-up of the day's results. Ivan Basso finished almost a half-hour off the pace.

Right before the end of the program, they announced... "Now for our Cialis Moment of the Day" and they showed Basso dragging at the back of the peleton. They gave Basso the Cialis award for "the biggest let-down of the day."

Could it be any worse?

I bet he's glad the sponsor wasn't Massengill.

Ivan Basso is ill. He's having trouble taking food. They should be congratulating him for his perseverence instead of making fun of him. A lot of riders would have abandoned under similar circumstances.

What?? There talking about Cialis not Basso. You must be a real stuff shirt there buddy.If you took some Cialis you might not be so uptight.
