I remember hearing some story about why he says it like that during last years tour.
He says it like that cause he's a redneck clown....Oh and the red wine too.

hmmm a drunken redneck American in France. "That's ok if that's not how's it's pronounced, we're Americans we can say it any way we like. " I know Phil always looks like he's swallowing a bug when those jokers start butchering names of riders and destinations. All these year sand he still refuses to say it properly.

He got away lucky. They need a double barrier system in the sprint area. Remember a few years back....I think it was Abdujaparov sic.....hit the cop taking pictures...at full tilt. That was really scary. I have that one on my "Crash" DVD. It's one of those sick looking crashes that you look away from but keep rewinding

General comic relief? Is that just an excuse? Do we need giggles with our commentary? I think Phil's bitingly snide remarks are plenty funny enough. OH I know it's so that the yanks will watch and laugh and have a great time. Sneaky OLN.

I've always been amazed at how close the crowd can get on the open road. Impossible to change and I don't think it should. But yea, the barriers could use a changin' for the finishes. Even the barrier design is evil. I keep waitin' for the bar/pedal grab by the barrier, you know it wants to.

So that's his gig....I was right. CLOWN!! As much as I love the commentating of Phil...and he is still the best by far....he is also slipping a little in his advancing year's. It will be sad when he goes. It will be like the old announcer at Maple Leaf Garden's with the nasally tone. "Wendel Clark..2 minutes for tripping". Now we get Andy Frost....YEESH!!

True, I keep forgetting that Phil has been doing it as long as I've been watching it.

Thor also got nailed in the head with a camera a split second before the cardboard hand as well. ****ing crowds.

And remember Lance hooked someone's purse on his bars too.. was that last year?

So officially the pool is dead. Most of the guys who wanted in are clueless without the 2 favorite's. That being said the few of us who did make pick's...you know who you are...are still eligible for the $20 grand prize...and the "mystery prize".
For the record my pick's. Landis in yellow. Eisel in white. Boonen in green. Moreau in polka dot. Credit Agricole for team. winning margin...altho I don't think it will be needed...1:40

Howie Meeker? I find the comic relief thing simply detracts from the whole gig. You'd think a four time racer would be able to provide some insight instead of babbling. But that is US TV for you. Subtlety like Phil's is generally overlooked. Much like the difference between UK sitcoms and their US remakes. Subtle vs. heavy handed. At least Canadian colour commentators are just inane rather than outright offensive.

Went through my parts bin to try to trim down my holdings: how many mtb stems does one really need? Quite a few as it turns out. Some very odd stuff hidden in there. Some's out on the street, but pm me if any of the following catch your fancy: MA3 built on a 36 campy record hub with a with an ACS Clawz 16t BMX hub, set of conti contacts 700 x 28. I also have two tarps available for free. Looking out my window it looks like my bag of stuff is still there which includes a rat-trap rear carrier, various old suntour and very old shimano derailleurs, reflectors, and other odds and sods. If you're a collector/pack rat, I can run out and grab it for you.

Not getting rid of the campy are ya?
As for the pool, man I simply don't know this year. I'd love to see Landis take it, but I just don't share Keith confidence. There's a little something in the back of my brain saying nope to Landis for all the marbles. 1:14 do I smell toast?

Well Thor definitely got hit in the head with something immediately before the giant hand hit him... you could clearly see it in the slo-mo replays.
