I think it's just that I've been posting a lot less since starting a new job a couple months ago, so when I do pop up it's that much more enjoyable.

^ Your Wins Above Replacement Poster is also exceedingly high when you're not being a crotchety old man. ;-D

Why is it that the Tour de France gets days of coverage on television, but the awesomely entertaining MetRX World's Strongest Man gets like a 3 hour block on ESPN2 on a random Tuesday afternoon in August?

Not fair at all.

Epic stage coming up in a few hours! Too bad I just got home from work and have to hit the hay for a while, but at least I can FF through all the ads, promos, etc. ;-D

Crazy last couple of hours today, and the icing on the cake was to watch Contador crack on the last climb and Voeckler to keep yellow for at least one more day. Still pulling for Evans over either of the Schlecks, but it's kind of a win-win now. Depending on what happens tomorrow, that Saturday TT could be the most exciting in years ;-D
