Since 2003 we have watched as much of the Tour as possible. This year is different, we had canceled our Directv subscription which meant we were canceling our Tour watching capabilities. Fortunately, we have a friend who has Directv and after reading my initial lament of not being able to watch the Tour said that they would record the Tour for us...SO COOL!
That with the daily broadcasts on the internet, we'll still have Phil & Paul blaring throughout the house for the next 3 weeks! Lastnight we received the first 3 stages and man, it's nice to watch the stages (even though they are past now) on the big screen instead of the computer monitor. So, with my daily dose of cycling news, Versus via steephill.tv and the recorded stages, we are set for the rest of the month! We are sad, sad people - every July revolves around the Tour.
I'm thinking of moving to France every July - anyone want to join me?
PS: I always root for the underdog, so I'm hoping that Team Garmin will do well this year, they came in second in today's Team Time Trial!
