speaking of ******* (don't all good stories start this way?), today I was about to send an email to the directors at one of our maintenence service providers. I usually end my emails with "Regards," but this time I had typoed it to "*******,". I had already clicked down the button to send and then I noticed the mistake so I had to slide the cursor off the button. It would have been classic. You should also know that we hate the service provider in question and they hate us too.

That's a good one. You should try it and see if anyone notices. I bet most people wouldn't catch that.

Ever notice how perfectly designed the QWERTY key layout is to wonderful typos? Me thinks there is a practical joker somewhere in history, and we are STILL writing the jokes.

It's all going to blow up during the time trial. No matter what happens this Tour will go down as one for the ages.

BTW you left out Cavit8 from the Jet gathering.

I wish that there was still a team time trial in this year's tour, the individual ones will still be awesome though

The only person I've met from here is 32flav when I hooked her up with that Gardin frame; how is that coming anyhow, 32flav? I am anxious to see it
I think we need 32flavors to confirm that you do exist because i'm having my doubts one person in over a year.
Ha-ha

I wonder if Floyd will be in the starthouse on time for the time trial....and have a properly functioning bike. If he has another torn tire or busted aero bars I am gonna apply to be the Phonak mechanic.

When they changed the rule and made it so you could only lose 3 minutes it made the Team T.T. inconsequential anyhow. If they were gonna do that again I would rather not have it. It is great to watch tho.

That was a bad looking fall towards the end of the stage, but then the guy just got right back on his bike and kept on going.

Mike.....dude....I love ya but it boggles my mind how you can be wrench and be several days behind the coverage. It would drive me bonkers not knowing what was going on. I don't even need to watch it. I'm buyin' the DVD just to have yesterdays stage, and maybe a Phonak jersey (word to Shizy)

Come to think of it I changed my own flat, not that I minded. Finding a wrench you can trust is a tall order. Ah to each his own, I couldn't watch it when all the riders were already on vacation.

Wow just heard on eurosprorts.com... Jan Ulrich has been fired by Team Mobile.

What the ****'s a wrench?

Edit: 15/16 blew my mind ... I just hope I get to see stage 17 before the rally (Somna, you're on fill-in detail if I don't get to see the end of the Tour by the time our trip starts).

I wrenched my back once somethin' fierce. Ah wrenching..... the exotic scents of wd-40, varsol and speed grease, as well as the tell tale hands are two shades darker than the rest of ya. I wish I hadn't sold off my tools when I stopped messin'.

me-cha-nic?

The **** man, I just tighten every nut I can find on a bike w/ an adjustable wrench until the edges round off. I figure it's solid at that point and **** ain't goin' nowhere. Seems to work fairly well.

Don't forget to add a generous amount of red loctite to your loose ball headsets!
