Once I hit 3000 posts I may retire?

Postby SHOCKandAWE » Sun Jul 24, 2005 5:08 pm

I think sitting on the football side with my wife and kids is the way to relax?

Sorry...I was just inspired by watching Lance Armstrong

As for retiring..Lance gave it another shot from last year's Tour, why not give 1000 more posts? :-b

Retire? Choice is yours, but I wouldn't. :-D

Haven't been following the race this year, so I have no idea what's going on with Lance or the race at the moment. I'm sure Sportscenter will catch me up tonight though. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Yep, Sportscenter had a big thing about it. ;-D

Congrats once again to Lance! ;-D

Lance rules. ;-D I am glad he's going out on top.

Basically, here's what happened in the Tour in a few sentences.

Lance won the Prologue. Lost the jersey for a few days after that. Won it back when he and his team won the team time trial. He gained a good amount of time on his closest rivals there. Lost it again during a mountain stage when a fairly insignificant rider who didn't have a shot at winning the whole thing was allowed to go by himself.

Lance gets it back the next day by accelerating past all his main rivals. No one could match his acceleration, and he put a minute on all the other big players.

After that, it was pretty much wait and see what the others would do. They tried to attack him a few times on some of the big mountain stages, but he would not let them get away. He either finished with them or beat them by a few seconds each time. Then, on the final time trial 2 days ago, he wasted everyone by 2 minutes. Game over. ;-D

It was a pretty easy victory considering that last year's was definitely in doubt until the final time trial.

I have watched the Tour every year since 1996...before Lance won his first Tour in 1999. I will continue to watch the race because it is a great test of human endurance. That, and the crazy old guy dressed up in a devil suit that always comes to the mountain stages. :-b

Ivan Basso, Alexandre Vinokourov, Jan Ullrich, Francisco Mancebo, and even American Levi Leipheimer (he got 6th this year!) all have a great chance at winning next year. I'm putting my money on Basso, but you never know! :-)

Hey Mercer Boy, I dont know squat about cycling, just understand the basics I guess. What's with the teams in cycling? Do teams actually win anything collectively? And I hear some people knock Lance because he doesn't participate in as many tournaments or whatever they're called so he can train and save his energy for the Tour de France. Are those criticisms valid? Pardon my ignorance on the great sport of cycling :-D

Well, I hope your 3000th post comes before pick3 ends :-b . J/K, although the light side is very intriguing, especially with the increase in sub-standard posts on this side.
