Its finally here, yes!!scottfromcali

The jersey case finally came today I just got it hung, looks good I think. If the pic uploaded c#$%py, and you can't see, its sighed by Lance of course. I went ahead and put the book and card in there to not only hide the screw holes, but I think it looks pretty good too. I havent really messed around with the jersey to make it smoother. Im not sure about the bottom part hanging down, what does everyone think? should I straighten it out? pin it up? leave it alone? I think I will have a small silver plaque made that says something like "Lance Armstrong four-time Tour de France Winner".

I finshed reading Lances "It's not about the bike" yesterday. For anyone who hasnt read it yet. Read it. What an awesome book, it gives a cool idea to the reader what goes through his mind as he rides in the TdF and other races. His personal struggles through cancer, chemotherapy, and through his hard life staring when he was just a kid. I have so much more admiration for him now, not only as a great cyclist but as very cool individual, as well.

That looks good! If it were me, I might smooth it out a little. I just got the 2000 USPS jersey, and I'm hoping to get Lance to sign it this year, maybe in April. I also just finished the book. My sister got it for me for my 40th birthday. I got so engrossed in it, I finished it in two sittings over a period of 24 hours. I remember someone posting that they didn't like him as much after they read the book, and I can't understand why. I mean the guy pulled himself up the only way he could. My admiration for him grew in leaps and bounds after reading the book. To do what he's done after what he's been through is amazing, to say the least. He's a very interesting person. As for me, I hope he wins 6.
Agreed, he is an amazing individual n/mscottfromcali

I'd say keep it the same but I remembered how good a friend's looked. Try using a regular clothes hanger that has been cut and modified so it doesn't poke out the neck hole. You won't even know it's there. That keeps the jersey in it's natural shape. From there you'll only have a few wrinkles to smooth out. Also try pinning up the tail part of the jersey so that only the front shows.
