    At least today's bike race coverage includes footage of actual bike racing...

    I watch every minute of the TdF and have for years. I love Phil and Paul. I could care less if he misses a call after sitting in a trailer watching a small TV monitor and calling a race for 4 hours when the winner won by 2 inches while going 40+ mph. Good grief.

    What? Damn, very sorry to hear that. I love David's call, I could listen to him read a phone book. I really hope he's able to get it treated and under control.
    The pleasure is momentary, the position ridiculous, and the expense damnable.

He's done that repeatedly, and it's getting to the point where I cringe when that guy is talking, expecting Phil to all of a sudden break into his report with unnecessary shouting.

    BTW, I think NBC got this one right, putting a guy on a bike to report from inside the race. Really digging that.
    I keep noticing this too, I'm waiting for the moto guy to lose it. I might even be satisfied with him swearing at Liggett under his breath, but just loud enough for the mic to pick it up.

    "In the marshalling yards and the trains are lining up in front of the peloton".

    I like it. Pure carny barking, lol. That's why the man gets paid.....for hyping the sport.

Which is pretty much what I saw as it was happening. And Paul wasn't jumping on the bandwagon either.

    After totally screwing the pooch the best Phil can come up with is "sometimes dreams do come true". Is he shilling for Disneyland?

    So I'm going to wish upon a star that this dottering Lancesucker gets strep throat this evening.
    My question to you is why the **** are you even watching them if you hate them so much?
