    Le Tour De Frog

    Anyone else watching today? I DVRed the stage today and am about to watch it.

    They climbed Alpe De Huez twice today....TWICE!! If you're not a cycling fan then before you blow me off do yourself a favor and Google Alpe De Huez. It's quite impressive.

    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Love me some Tour.

    Catching the recap tonight. My all time favorite stage is when they climb Alpe de Huez.


    Mrs. Stove doesn't give a whit about bike racing but loves the arial shots of the countryside. It is France, after all. Their government may be seriously effed up but it is a beautiful country.

    I just finished watching the stage. I was very exciting at the finish.

    Were there any good crashes? A race a proper race has to have a couple good crashes.

    Looks like the French just disqualified an American for use of three banned substances under French law....soap, deodorant, and toothpaste.

    TJ had an amazing comeback day! Phil said Froom had an awful day. He finished 5th, and extended his lead to 5:11. He should have that awful of a ride everyday!

    The spectators today were awful! Both Riblon and Van Garderen had to swat nut balls away.

    When I was younger had someone told me when I got older I would spend most of the month of July setting around captivated by a bike race around France one of us would had to of taken a whoop'n but that is what it has come to. Thought they had a very good race and look forward to next July. Quintana will be a force to be reckoned with. Congrats to Chris Froome.

    It just ain't a decent race without a couple good crack ups.
