Bob Roll is an idiot... Saying Tour Day France once is okay but the way he emphasizes it is terrible...

What is up with his sideburns? He seems to get dumber and dumber every year I watch OLN...

If you think Bobke is getting dumber then you haven't followed his career as a cyclist.
He's always been a goofball, that was how he established his fan base.

As far as his sideburns go, maybe he's trying to get back to this:

God no.
<<<-French is my third language.
That said, I am generally fond of Bob's antics. His Tour Day France thing, although I thought it was funny, has been way overdone. I just think it's old. Although the reaction it gets outta some of people is priceless...

HELL YES!!!! Bobke rocks, and it never gets old when you're sticking it to the French.

yes --- but once the TDF is over, change it back to Tour de France.

It took me a few broadcasts before I realized that "shadow" or "birthmark" on his left cheek was a sideburn. It goes well with his Turr-Day-Furanse pronunciation.
