LiveStrong Armband watch

Who has it on in the TdF. You MUST see it or read about it (no assuming USPS all wear it). So far:

Stewart O'Grady (or was it McEwen)?
Matteo Tossatto (Fassa Bortolo)

PS "Watch" is meant in the sense of "keeping a look out" not a time-keeping device. There are no LiveStrong Watches

I'm guessing you should've worded the thread title

There's a good chance Jan could end up wearing one, he's an honorable guy.

Robbie? Never!

rumor has it all the stage winners have had one. it's becoming a luck thing. but they're branching out from just le tour. other sports folks have been seen wearing them. good to see it taking off.

A little off the subject here... But whats REALLY SAD is that some idiots on ebay are selling them for a profit...
There are a few on ebay that say all proceeds go to the foundation, but I think it sucks that these guys sell them for a profit, whats happening is they find some poor guy on ebay that wants one, but doesnt have a credit card and cant buy them from LAF and auction them for more money, pocket the profit because the guy will pay with a money order..

It appeared as though Freddie Adu had one on at last night's soccer match between DC United and the LA Galaxy.
