What on earth is better than what we all witnessed? Honestly, when Lance basically took off and won the Tour in 1999 during Stage 9 to Sestriere and when he broke Pantani the next year, I ask you people what is more F&&%king amazing than that. It takes periodic watching of this event to truly appreciate because over time things slowly fade in our dialy memories. I have on tape Lemond winning over Fingeon by 8 seconds way back when and that seemed like an unbeatable story but Lance and his story is ridiculous. It seems impossible but I know it happened. The only thing that blows big Moby's Dick is the fact that I don't get OLN where I live unless I get a dish which may not be possible because I live in an apartment. Can I stay with someone who gets OLN for the 3 weeks when the Tour starts? Just planning ahead.
