JaJa and the ladies...theBreeze

This from an interview with Jalabert posted today on cyclingnews.com. When asked about plans for next year he responded,

"Why not be directeur sportif for a women's team? I like women's sports, I have two daughters and I encourage them to participate in sports, it's a good school. As for women's cycling, I regret that the media considers it less important; the effort is the same. It's a shame that the media separates the two disciplines ? I enjoy women's sports as well."

Would that be cool or what!!??

I really think he ought to give some serious consideration to hiring a full time maintenance person, one who would say, change any light bulbs that burn out so he wouldn't have to get near any ladders ;)
holy crap, guess that means I gotta get my act together...lonefrontranger

I really liked how he ended the interview talking about needing to be around his 11 year-old daughter and then this sentence, "I'm lucky to have a family that has allowed me to live my career to its fullest, now its time for me to give some back." What a class guy!

His two daughters are lucky to have him as a dad.
Sounds like a sitcom...mr_spin

Jaja, a recently retired ex-athlete, is raising two teenage daughters. To spend more time with them, he volunteers to coach their cycling team. Hilarity ensues.

John Ritter plays Jaja.

Charo plays his wife, a thick-accented former Latin dancer and martial arts expert with, who now tours the world as a concert pianist.

The daughters are played by Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen.

"Jaja and the Ladies," coming this fall to ABC, following Monday Night Football.
