    Anyone watching twice a day?

    I watch the morning coverage live while I work at home (during ads), then I get home from work and watch all evening again.

    I need help...

    same here; some stages I've seen 3 times. Unfortunately, today I was in a meeting in the home office and had to follow here only. Luckily, my wife has it on the DVR, so I'll watch it (over and over probably ;-)) when I get back.

    No, but I catch it 3x if I can!
    DVR the morning broadcast
    watch cut down version for lunch
    then watch the wrap up show that
    evening.

    I have alot of stages to transfer to DVD then I can
    watch it all year long!

    Ahhhh...good to hear.
    I'm not alone in my madness.

    Non-cyclists must think we're nuts.
    Starring at guys riding bikes for several hours....then watching the same thing again.

    It is goofy when you think of it....but it's our passion.
    My whole life schedule will go to heck after Sunday!

    This first no-Lance tour has certainly not disappointed.

    I'm watching Floyd's comeback for the 4th time today. Most days I have watched at least twice.

    Yep. I watch live coverage in the morning before work and then prime time when I get home.
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

    I certainly watched it twice today. But I admit that I have not done so with many of the stages.

    Help with what? You aren't watching it three times a day like me?

    I'm watching it at least twice and dvr'ing a few stages. Wish I had thought about doing the entire tour on dvd. That would make for an awesome winter training rides.

    Oh, and my wife actually said that she would like to go to see the Tour at least once.

    I have the best wife ever!

    I watch the 5:30 AM one then watch the good parts and finish of the repeats. I avoid the "Enhanced Coverage" like the plague. The only enhancement I want is less yakking.

    Right.

    It IS a little different to listen to.

    Plus you never know when they'll leave their mics on accidentally!
