MESS WITH THE HIGHLIFE ............
AND THE HIGHLIFE MESSES WITH YOU!
Have to admit being a bit worried that LayTOURDayF coverage would be lacking. The broadcast of earlier races this year seemed to be missing a bit of the magic by the Verses crew.
But I have to say I've been pleasently surprised, actually quite excited, about the coverage, AND the race itself. Lots of action AND drama it the first 5 stages, and it will only get better.
Gotta love Cancellara catching the sprinters AND the break napping to take the Stage win while wearing the mellow johnny.
Also been exciting watching Barloworld sprinter Robbie Hunter mixing it up with the big boys, and almost beating Thor himself.
Even the commercials have been entertaining, although I may tire of them by the end of the race. In the non-cycling category I'd like to nominate the Miller commercials for a special award
"CLEAN UP ON AISLE COMMON SENSE"
a few memorable tag lines.
Out with the SatAM group this morning for a leg opener before the Crit this afternoon. P-T has tried to fill the shoes of injured Wild Bill by reading the rules at the beginning. He's doing an admirable job, but we still miss Bill and need him back.
A quick 1/2 loop, a small effort or 2, then it was time to wave goodbye to the group, and watch the boys climp in the Alps.
"I like to take undah-wah-ta pho-toes too, and email them to my friends........."
I agree that the coverage has been more like the OLN days and not the coverage they had in the early season races. I love those Miller commercials.Post a Comment
