.... Never happened - I think the Itallian police detained them.
Is this true? (nm)9WorCP

I went on the site after the chat had happened hoping I could see the posts. When I got there all OLN had was a "post chat" chat and there were a few louts hanging about bragging about how they insulted Ligett. If true that would be really disapointing. Anyone catch this web program last night?

First of all, obviously it's not true about them not participating in the OLN live chat last night. How do I know? Because I was sitting next to them during the whole event providing technical support. There were good 80 to 90 people at any given moment. Most people were full of good things to say to Phil and Paul, and they asked many interesting questions which Phil and Paul enjoyed answering. There were some who took the opportunity to act silly, but Phil and Paul were not bothered by them. They were both genuinely surprised by the interest of the public and the level of knowledge of US cycling fans. Also, I was happy to find out that they were very kind and nice in person. They are both very down-to-earth chaps.
Thanks. Good to hear.9WorCP

You have a great job. I'd love to meet those guys. I was going to tune in but hey I was out training. 2 questions: Are you going to post the whole discussion? Where are they/you broadcasting from? Italy? US? Thanks for responding.

Glad to hear that it did occur. I was there at what they said was the appointed time, along with about 25 others, and no Phil or Paul. Maybe they had already finished and I missed out, but they said 7-8 PM eastern. 7 - 6 = 1:00PM local for me (same time difference as the Giro coverage), but no chat. Don't know what happened. Sorry. Maybe next time.
Hey, can you get your hands on some "real" jerseys?JustSpinnin
