I was driving around in my Lincoln Navigator on my way to a rave party with Simoni. We stopped and bought a char-broil bar-b-que (apparently the keepers of the flame) and had a big party on the beach. There was this band that played, that kept playing the same song over and over. It was the song from the Lincoln commercial.

I think the 2 commercials they play over and over and over and over during the Giro is going to make me mad!

Isn't the Lincoln Navigator the same thing as a Mercury Mountaineer?

Just be glad the impotency ads are gone. And that when the rave breaks up around 6 am, that Char Broil BBQ can make pancakes.

I tape the live coverage in the morning then watch it when I get home. Not only do I get to fast forward through all the commercials, I don't have to watch the edited down evening version! It's really sad when I am just happy as a clam watching these guys just roll along on flat roads while a break dangles off the front at 4:00min and nothing is happening. Sometimes it can make baseball look like an extreme sport. But it doesn't matter to me, I'm just as happy as can be... I tell my wife I'm "window shopping!" I always put in some kicker line to show how "responsible" I am with my cycling purchases by saying something like: "Just think honey, I bet that set of wheels on that bike there costs more than my entire ride!"

Remember the Mongoose bike ads last year? By the time the tour was over I swore I would never own one of those bikes.

I just hit the mute button on my remote. I try to remember if there were no ads we woundn't be watching the Giro...

I'm still haunted by that awful power bar commercial from the 2000 TDF and Olympics!

i'll fast-forward through all the fluff ads, but must stop and rewind to the beginning of any commercial with Bob Roll speaking italian. the best one ends with him in an armchair making commentary in italian into his remote.

Did you read his OLN commentary posted today? Really bashes the dopers. Good column.

He is most DEFINITELY the man! How I would love to take a cycling tour through Italy with him!
