Ever see pictures from before there was TV? A bunch of people staring at a radio as if under a trance?

I listened to today's stage online. No video what so ever. As the stage came to an end, I was doing exactly that. Staring at my computer. Ignoring everything around me. Co-workers walked by and just laughed. Of course, my imediate response was, "SSSSSHHHHHH!!!!"

Just what Gramps would have done.

PS: See, no spoiler!

I have a TV in my office but the only channel I get is CNBC. I was hitting refresh so often that my fingers are bruised.

No spoiler as much as I want to write about the stage.
There is a discussion going on on the TDF board. nmLen J

I start with Eurosport but end up having problems maintaining the connection.

I've noticed the more popular stages have been worse. I guess there's a lot of people trying to listen.

After I got sick of having to reconnect I jumped over to OLN and heard the rest there without any trouble.

Their coverage stinks compaired to Eurosport but they did run the last 30 minutes without interuption.

Ligget quote of the day:
The man looks as if he's just gotten out of the shower...Sweat just tumbling from his face!!!"

I even posted here a quote from Paul Sherwen - "When you crack in a race like this, you blow to smithereens."

Then it said "What a race."

There was NO mention of who - or what - cracked. Just a teaser.

Nevertheless, my post was abducted and sent to cyber neverland.

That said, I too stared at my computer.
