Just so I could post these pics


I promised Michael I would put my GC pick in writing. You know the tour is wide open when you can have a long discussion about possible winners, and each rider has almost as much of a chance as the other. Before the tour, it took me about 2 minutes to decide on Jan. This time it took several days, and the pick still feels kind of shaky.



But what the hell. I'm going with Floyd. And I hope when he wins, that he gets on that podium and just does it up, like he can. Cap backwards, big ol crazy shades, scruffly half assed facial hair, and "what up" Inland Empire attitude. Enough with the astronauts, boy scouts, and euro wannabees. Let's have someone up there who's style makes the French recoil. What up France?

According to the magazine I lopped the photo from, the fur is not real. No more real than the pink bunny fluff on the Patagonia

the rest of my podium is

2. Salvodelli
3. Leipheimer

I'll have to do a photo montage on Paolo later. I think I'll skip the one on Levi. Maybe do one on Odessa instead.

and no mention of poor pretty Boy George? Do we think he is going to burn up in the mountains with no chance of podium?
