OLN 2001 TDF(10 posts)

Mar 12, 2002 5:16 PM
Anyone watching the highlights of last years TDF on OLN? On twice a day (PST) 4:00 and 11:00 PM (1 hr shows). Good commentary by Lance Armstrong. I think he might have a job lined up when he retires...

hmm... I have the opposite opinion. I think the TDF Encore is great and I've been watching, but Lance's commentary is minimal; 1 minute in the beginning, 1 minute halfway and 1 minute at the end. I guess I was looking for more.
Also, I like his insight but he is a little stiff and does not look at the camera. He needs to take a few pointers from Phil and look at the Audience. :)
Regardless, I watch and still enjoy it. I think OLN should have cycling on every day of the year.

W/ my wife and three year old daughter. She knows who Phill is from watching the tour last summer. My wife commented on how Lance looked like a little boy behind the desk. I then commented saying that Lance kinda looked like an older "Dewey" from "Malcomb in the Middle". She agreed. It is nice having cycling on TV every day this month!

I record the 4:00 show and watch it at night while I'm on the trainer, it beats reruns of Magnum PI!!
