So yea, its no secret I dont like Lance.
But really, the more I think about it, Lance isnt so bad you know. Iv never really been turned off by his own words when in interviews.
Watching this years coverage so far, I have realized the source of my dislike towards Lance;
Its Paul and Phill!!
Complete sellouts! Its no secret that VS pays them money to talk up Lance, and to talk him up big time.
The more I hear them just pour out Lance brown nose commentary, the more I loath Lance. Then I said wait a minute, these are not Lances words. This is not what Lance is thinking.
Like the way he made the split today for example, to be honest, the biggest and smartest move was the Yellow jersey, Cancellara. Without ANY teammates, he was there. He even bunny-hopped a median to make sure he made the split. This guy really did the job of the day, I would even say above Cavi who won, because for him it was a given after what happened. Yet Paul and Phill just talked non-stop of Lances brilliance, as if Cancellara just got lucky.
Paul and Phill talked non-stop about Lance making the split, as if he is some kind of genius for doing so.
This is pretty much for everything. If Lance sips his bottle, its 30min of commentary of how smart he is, taking in fluids, keeping topped up, knowing when to feed and so on. Its plain ridiculous.
Lance himself has never struck me as sos arrogant, but the way Paul and Phill go on and n about him, i perceive that Lance is an ego-maniac, when really, its just Paul and Phill personifying him as the almighty I, I, I, I, I.
Gig is up! Paul and Phill, your officially sell outs!! Hope VS is paying you good money for undervaluing commentary of other riders doing a great job!!
And for Cancellara, dont worry man, I still think you did a great job, even if Phill and Paul ignore your efforts!!
