I've heard two ways of saying Roll's nickname. Which is it?

Thanks.

I would think that would depend on whether you say "Tour dey france" or "Tour duh France".

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Or is Al having fun at Bob's expense?

If Al is teasing Bob, it's too bad. He just makes himself look even more clueless.

How about just "boob"? I don't know, I guess he's amusing, but to me, he's more like fingernails on a chalk board.

No, that would have been Robin Williams.

I'm sure OLN is jsut trying to appeal to a broader, more American audience, but since I can't get up at 3:30 AM I have found myself learing to work my VCR so I can hear Phil and Paul call the race. So much more knowledgeable and concise.
