Sherl Crow was with Kid Rock tonight at the CMAs, but they were nominated for Best vocal event.

Sheryl's music is much overrated, IMHO. I had an advance copy of her first 'breakthrough' release, 'Tuesday Night Music Club', or whatever it was called. Nothing special, pretty pedestrian stuff. I was really surprised when a few months later it generated such an intense buzz, which, unfortunately, hasn't let up, much to my chagrin. Oh well, popular music and popular culture always seems to pander to the lowest common denominator. Too bad Lance doesn't get it; however, if it makes him happy, so be it!

Hollywood celebs is supposed to be America's royalty. Some figures I do admire. WC Fields comes to mind. In spite of Charlie Chaplins flaws, he grieved for the human race and obsessed with its needs. .....He dedicated his life to making life better for us through communicating his ideals........
lThey are supposed to represent all our collective struggles and aspirations..Hollywood glitz. Many have had all the attention cause them to have really screwed up lives. An admiring public destroyed Marilyn Monroe.
Don't think they(Hollywood) deserve any more grief from the 'admiring public' than any other public figure. Be it sports or political.
Certainly business leaders in the last couple years are not to be admired, considering business ethics of late.
Anyone who lives in a fish bowl will disappoint the admiring public. Maybe the celebrities are not to be blamed so much.Maybe our gauking/stalking them and not giving them their space , like we did John F. Kennedy Jr. is their unmaking.
I think it says lots for the sport of cycling that Lance Armstrongs' accomplishments puts him in league with our screwed up celeb culture. Hope he controls that status well and not let it consume him..

I think Lance should go with Sandra, and let Robin Williams eat crow.

Just a thought.

I don't know if BikeForums has a "Quote of the Year" contest, but I nominate this one!

Yep I agree. Still think "bicycle smile" has to be the best post of the year, but I'll second this one for "quote of the year"

You've got it all wrong. Lance is dating Martha Stewart. ;-)

I think Armstrong's TDF run ends this year. Sheryl Crow will have him smoking and boozing it up in no time.

Lance looks a lot like Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.
Anyone else see a resemblance?

I have a book of baroque piano pieces with a portrait of W.F., and I have seen pictures of L.A. also.

Possibly true. But IMHO, she's the hottest over-40 lady out there.

I figure Lance is about to become like Ulric -- distracted by personal issues. Next, we'll hear about him crashing his car. And, guess what, even with him losing the tour next year, all of the sexiness and intrigue will raise the profile of biking in the U.S.
