    Did anyone else start talking like Paolo Bettini?

    After seeing his Specialized commercial over and over and over and over (ad nauseum) during the Tour, I started referring to my bike as...bella...rigido...legere...preciso...

    ...and for some reason I have this weird impression that my grandfather planted a tree for me. Oreo...has this been happening to anyone else?

    I am-a...CAN'T CONTROL IT ...Specialized!

    Damn.

    Italian is only spoken when we're riding as a group in matching kit. "Mama, the Italians are coming!"
