everyone done with the Olympics hangover? That was a tough one to get over. My withdrawal symptoms are now hardly recognizable, except for the spontaneously singing 'Oh, Canada'. I guess I do have 28 months to learn 'God Save the Queen'. A final olympic video, Ryan St. Ogne got 4th in aerials and Justin Olsen was a pusher on the gold medal winning 4-man bobsled team.
-Paris-Nice was won by Alberto Contado, and not because his team was strong. If he wins the Tour, it will be all because of him. Although it will certainly be entertaining with everyone's favorite vodka-swigging, positive-drug-tester, generally-crazy-riding Kazakh Alexandre Vinokourov back in the peloton and AC's teammate. I can imagine the conversation between these two as the ride up an important mountain in France in July.....
Vino (in Kazakh): "I'm going to attack."
AC (in Spanish): "You need to watch the other riders to make sure they don't attack."
Vino (in Kazakh): "Ok, when everyone is together, I will attack."
AC (in Spanish): "I'm leading the Tour, so you can't leave me."
Vino (in Kazakh): "When you least expect it, and it makes no sense, I will attack....many times, I'll attack."
-The spring one day classics are coming up, so keep an eye out for Tornado Tom Boonen. His recreational cocaine use is over, for now.
-Mark Cavendish, how many times can we joke about his bad, British teeth? Since it's effected his riding.....I say it's open season.
Andy Roddick and James Blake were greatly missed by the U.S. Davis Cup Team. The Serbs took our lunch money, knocked us down and tried to kick clay in our eyes.
Big ups to our two nieces that are State Champs!!! Stone Cold is now 2 time Champion in state basketball. And Twinkle Toes is a double State Champion in dancing. Here team won the Hip Hop and Pom routines.
Wow, I'm sure glad the next generation can revel in the same talents that we have!!!!!!
