    What's up with the Nazi on the bullhorn???

    Watching the Stage 4 TTT, every time the camera focuses on a particular team, it sounds like Hitler is barking marching orders on a loudspeaker. Kinda like a German version of Pink Floyd's "you...yes you...stand still will ya'!" Is it someone in a pace car shouting out stats to the teams???

    They were showing Heras when I heard that. I had to laugh and wonder what he was thinking after riding for the much more laid back Johan for a few years.

    When we were going to our birthing classes, we expectant dads were given a sheet with "helpful words of encouragement" to repeat to our laboring wives during contractions. Stuff like "you're doing great, I love you, I'm so proud of you, you'll be a great mom." Stuff like that. At the bottom, we were invited to come up with some of our own.

    I put "!Venga! !Venga! !Venga!" It didn't go over well.

    But Sweetheart, I said, don't we want our kids to be athletic and bilingual?

    From personal experience, I've found that during birth comedy doesn't go over very well! Enough said.

    This is very true. When I exclaimed "WOW! It can do that !," during the birth of my first child. Both my wife and the Doctor told me to shut up and be nice

    I'd have to change teams.

    Imagine if Johan Bruneel tried that... LA would coast back and smack him in the head.

    Or, wack Siaz in the head with the bullhorn a few times. He'd get the hint.

    Probably depends on the relationship outside of race day. The riders might like. I played basketball for a coach who was a screamer. I liked him, it was quite motaivating at times especially when he would get a T.

    It sort of reminds me of the dude that keeps cadence for a rowing team.

    Saiz must be great to his riders off the road, because I know if I had to deal with that prick during a time trial, I would hate him. I'd go back to the team car just to tell him to shut the **** up.
