Only day three and ... wow.
Snore. Am I the only one who could care less?
If you could care less then you actually care. Get the phrase correct before trolling through the muck.
Go Ryder Hesjedal! Canadians are so proud.
Even if you're not keen on cycling, the Tour de France is great to watch for the scenery throughout many parts of Europe.
the TdF became a contest of who could take the most drugs /steroids years ago...I can't even care about it anymore
and I've been watching it since '83
As Lance said, since most of us were dirty, does it matter? Guess you ignored a good 20 years of baseball, too?
And Tiger. lol
just like baseball,
it was fun to watch when everybody was dirty.
now that it's "clean", it's boring!
One of my pet peeves is people who get this backwards, thanks for correcting!
If one could not care less, then why do they bother commenting?
actually yes, haven't watched base-a-bowl since Ron Cey and Steve Padre played for the Dodgers
and golf is zzzzzzzzz
They don't take steroids, that's football. One of the things they did that was illegal in the sport was blood transfusions. They would save their own pre-race blood and then put it back in after they finished a stage. Since the blood is stored cold the cyclists would shiver from it.
Drugs or no drugs the TDF, and the other big races, are arguably the toughest endurance sport in the world.
It's like auto "racing" with identically prepared cars where the big wreck determines the "best" driver. Turn 'em loose. We have science and innovation for a reason.
Another bit of good sports this time of year is watching the Kobe-blowing Lakers tank through yet another free agency period.
Soccer players demand an autopsy when someone looks cross-eyed at them. Riders hit the pavement at 40 mph and saddle back up. (But futbol folk are in great aerobic condition.) Grand tours overall, Ironmans for one-day events, Western States 100 for the seriously deranged.
I must admit as to have gotten interested in this just the past 5 years. I now watch a good portion. Well I have it on television anyway, not much actually gets my full attention.
This is the main reason I watch it! Love seeing the scenery.
We have a Canadian in it doing well?...
I tried this for video poker and ended up drunk fast.
Of course lets just not think about football and steroids. That would be a micro aggression.
I love watching cycling and look forward to the tour every year.
Another great stage today.
Cavendish has had a damn good 2015 but he's not looking like Cavendish in the TdF so far.
Cav reminds me of Zabel about at the same age. He's in the right spots but just is going a tad too early. Three years ago it wasn't an issue because he was younger/stronger but he's not the brash Manx missile he once was... but that being said. When it rains it pours for Cav, so if he can get one, he can get two more + Paris.
