    What I've learned during this year's tour...

    1. Hot women drink Michelob Ultra.
    2. Saabs recycle their exhaust gasses.
    3. Disgraced former racers can ride in reverse.
    4. I can meet someone that matches me in 29 different personality traits.
    5. Cervelo makes bikes for people like you and me.
    6. I hate engine sludge.

    What else?

    Not being privy to the wonderful world of Versus, how does this one go? Just curious.

    it basically shows a bunch of saabs driving around in slo-mo while a guy talks about saab recycling their exhaust gasses.

    I've also learned that one simple pill can help me deal with male performance issues.

    did anybody catch the ShamWow! commercial last night? I couldn't tell if that was a local spot or what, but it was on during the Tour last night here in PA.

    It's some kind of shammy wipe that is guarenteed for 10 years. They say its made in Germany and they sell it for 20 bucks.

    I was thinking that the sham would be when you sent 20 bucks to somebody outside of the US and they never sent you the shammy wipe.

    that would be a perfect ShamWow!

    9. Even Olympic divers use ShamWow to dry off.

    Let's keep the list going!

    A 3-hour hummer

    Wow, you actually watch the commercials? I time-shift the Tour with my DVR, and blast away the commercials - the Bobke+Brits show is not 3 hours long if you do that, probably only an hour.

    11. I learned that Saabs are made by a bunch of jet engineers.

    We only have two or so Saabs in our town, so I am not sure if they are as fast as a jet.

    12. I also learned that I can get a Hummer* every evening for 3 hours, but I won't enjoy it.

    * FYI - if you don't know what a Hummer is , I can't tell you.

    Don't forget that ExxonMobil is an enviromentally friendly corporation concerned about the consumer. They are doing everything they can to seek alternative energy sources.

    I just sort of like it that some of the Special Princesses that watch le Tour have to sit through commercials for bull riding and cage fighting.
