Congrats to the Brits

Congratulations to Bradley Wiggins and all the other riders that finished up the Tour de France today. It was a great race and well deserved wins for all. I was pulling for Mark Cavendish to win the stage, Wesley and Gerry were pulling for Peter Sagan. Mark won with a close second by Sagan in a very exciting finish. We were all yelling and cheering and happy for all of those on the podium in Paris today. Well done all!
Now that the tour is over, maybe I can quit wasting away my mornings watching the bike race and get back to work. I get my stitches out tomorrow so I have no more excuses!

It was a great win wasn't it... hell, we're just happy to win something over here! Hope you've been doing ok and good to get the stitches out. You'll have to recover from that with a TV Olympic marathon!! I'm looking forward to it getting started. I'm a cycling, rowing and boxing man myself... oh, and i do like a bit of that canoe slalom gubbins!! not such a track and field guty, though I will be watching as much as i can squeeze in!

I love watching the Tour. The broadcasters do such a good job not only with the race, but with showing the French countryside that it runs through. We never tire of the old stone churches and little villages. Great wins for Wiggins and Cavendish. Now get those stitches out and get back to work, dammit!

Yay! Get back into that studio, you've been on the couch too long. Just kidding (a little). I hope the removal of stitches helps you feel much better.

Glad the stitches are heading away, hope you have a nurse with better eye sight than I did - OUCH!!!!!
Damn the Tour was so exciting, I am so not a sports fan but I watched the finish of the first stage opf the Tour of Britain here last year and watched Cav do his sprint thing - Arghhhh! So exciting! What a race though, how many miles! Heck,
