I'm 35 but I chased him down like a kid at after a ballgame. I now own a cycling cap with a BIG L a BIG A and somne scribbling that looks kinda like "rmstrong." It's a coup. I had to share.
Don't go riding in that cap! (nm)Mabero

I haven't washed the cap in the last 2 weeks. It was all stiff and filthy when I handed it to him. Sheesh. I guess it will be like that forever now, eh?

Wow, consider yourself lucky! I hung out outside of the ABC studios this morning with several other people, hoping for an autograph. Lance got into an SUV without signing anything from anybody and was driven away. One young guy ran beside the SUV for three blocks, but still didn't get an autograph.
Then I took the subway down to the steps of the NY post office to see the big ceremony. I ran into the building at the end, hoping again for an autograph. One guy asked him as he was walking by, but Lance gave a friendly "no, thank you." I went up to him and just said, "wow, could I just shake your hand?" He said, "thank you," smiled, shook my hand, I again said, "wow, " or something silly like that, and he walked off with a large group of USPS employees.
Very exciting stuff... I also got to see his bike. (It even had his name on the frame. Zowie.) It was in the back of his SUV. I took a picture through the tinted windows. I hope that one turns out!

God I hate to do this, but I was at a party at LA's house in Austin in 1999 before he won the first tour, with the LAF Peloton Project, along with Big Mig, Lemond, Eric Hieden, and and Michael Ward from Wallflowers. That was a once in a lifetime event.
That's Mr. Envy to you.9WorCP

I'll take the my crumbs but it looks llke you got the cake. That must have been an awesome party. Since you have trumped my minor coup I think you owe me some details about that party. Did you get to talk to any of these guys? What were they like? Did Miguel get drunk and smoke cigarettes? Dish! Dish!

PS. I hate you. : )
