Am I getting old? **NO SPOILER HERE**

So am I alone in thinking that Landis looks like a complete dumba$$ with the sunglasses he wears? Good GOD man...

Yeah, you're alone. I kind of like when the guys wear sunglasses. I can't read their expressions at all.

Plus, it hides his porn 'stache a lil bit.

If you're talking about the ones he wears after the races, then yes I'm with you. Out here in L.A. you see jokers wearing those things all the time. Fashion slaves...

Actually, pretty much all the glasses he wears. Looks like a moron. Or Dale Earnhardt. Your choice.

no, I completely agree with you. Assuming we're not talking about the m-frames or the zeros, but the huge bug-eyed glasses he wears before and after the stages. The ones that resemble the sunglasses fashionista's like paris hilton, lohan, or even sheryl crow wear. They're the ugliest things to happen to fashion since argyle leg warmers, and I hope the trend dies soon. No one looks good in them, not even when you're wearing the yellow jersey.

Aren't we a tad judgemental? I don't think Paris is nearly as "skeletal" as Rasmusson. I thought the topic was fashion eye-wear?

Yeah, Floyd's choice in sunglasses style leaves something to be desired.

No. She's MORE skeletal than Rasmusson. Someone needs to give them both a double stuff oreo though.

Or maybe they can split one.
