Talk show hosts all lining up for Floyd Landis?

Jay Leno, Conan Obrien, David Letterman, or even John Stuart??

Phone call from the President? White House visit?

Pray tell, how do you know?

I think that once the public gets to know Floyd, he will have popularity that will leave LA fuming & stewing.

I don't think Lance relishes fame. I really don't. I think he'll be glad to have someone else in the spotlight.

The ITV (British) podcasters (Stage 19) have noted a panache deficit. They think that Floyd needs to become slicker with the media.

MATT: His passion is pretty deeply buried, isn't he? He is not at all comfortable with the press.

CHRIS: No. I think some of the new, eh, the newfound wealth that he just is about to come into, he maybe he wants to spend a little of it on some media training.

Please Floyd, no media training. I don't look forward to seeing Floyd become just another Nike packaged product. Everyone likes the genuine article.

You got it. We all just need him to be Floyd.

A few talk show gigs are ok. And, this guy's story is perfect for a biography. I'd be more interested in reading about Floyd than even Lance.

I find it ironic that a man who spent the first 18 years of his life without a TV is now (probably) going to be on talk shows, morning shows, sports shows, etc.
