So, did he dump Sheryl Crow already, or are you just late to the game? ;)

SOLVANG, Calif. (Jan. 26) - Lance Armstrong is facing five months of grueling training before attempting to win a record sixth Tour de France. He's constantly mobbed by autograph-seekers, reporters and paparazzi. He recently finalized an emotionally difficult divorce and misses his three children back in Austin.
"I'm in a good, happy place," he says. "I've never been happier."
He's not kidding. The 32-year-old Armstrong's contentment comes from a new relationship with 41-year-old rock singer Sheryl Crow.
"Yeah, I wasn't single very long," he says, recovering from a solo training ride in winding roads near Santa Barbara. "I wasn't planning this, but then you meet somebody."
They became a public-twosome shortly after his divorce from wife Kristin was final in December.
"We're very similar," he says. "She likes to stay busy. She's always on, and I like that. We don't stay home. If we want, we go out for some Baja Fresh or to a Lakers game. When we're together, we never feel bothered or uncomfortable."
The couple spent Thanksgiving with Crow's parents and Christmas with his mom and her husband. Crow visited the U.S. Postal Service training camp here last week and had dinner with Armstrong's teammates.
"She's a very humble, down-to-earth person," he says. "Bright and intelligent."
Armstrong's mother, Linda, has already bonded with Crow.
"They're inseparable," he says. "She almost talks more with my mom than I do."
On Sunday, Crow made another visit to training camp and received an early gift for her Feb. 11 birthday from the five-time Tour de France winner: a top-of-the-line Trek Madone road bike, the same model he rides.
"She's not a cyclist," Armstrong says, "but she'll pick it up. She's very fit, and she surfs, hikes and does yoga."
Crow has not scheduled a new album or tour this year, so she'll be a visitor to Armstrong's Tour.
"She'll be around," he says. "Life is good."

Sign me up on that list, too. Between Sheryl, team defections and the 13-week documentary the team is letting OLN do, too many distractions. Here in D/FW, we knew the Cowboys dynasty was done in the 90s when distractions reached this level. (When your long snapper has his his own radio show, it's clearly a sign of the end.) It looks like the same thing with Lance.

I don't remember. KLIF,WBAP or the Ticket?

Man, I don't remember which station. That's been 9-10 years, and I'm lucky to remember last week sometimes! (However, tomorrow is my wife's birthday, and I do remember that.) But it was Dale Hellestrae, the long snapper and backup offensive lineman, who had his own show. If I remember right, he was teamed with Mark Tuinei and it was called Snapper and the Pineapple, or something like that. He also did a regular segment called "Inside Helle's Head" on someone else's show on The Ticket. Of course, Michael Irvin and Deion probably did 3 shows each, and even Aikman on on a radio show and a TV show, or something like that. I'm fuzzy on the details, but remember thinking at the time, "The long snapper has his own radio show. The end is near." ;-)

LOL, Now that you said Hellestrae, I think it was KLIF
So who's putting out the hit on Crow?curtybirdychopper
Jan 27, 2004 2:45 PM
Someone needs to take her out, now. Any part time hitmen on this sight?

If crow is too difficult a target, at least do me in before the tour.
Oh Jeez. Sign me up on the list also.KenS

I hope that it all doesn't end like Indurain. I would like to see a close battle between Armstrong, Heras, Ulrich, and Beloki.
Thanks. Now I'm covered in my own vomit. (nm)owmynads

I bet you this bike is too big for her!!!!!

Is Lance even remotely focused on training, with all this, ah, *love* going on? I fear he's having too many thoughts about 'trim' that don't involve the front derailleur.
All indicators say yes...teoteoteo

How's that for a magic 8 ball answer? Seriously though he has been training. His assistant/bike wrench goes to LA with him and makes sure all Lance has to do is hop on his bike an go. He follows Lance in a car to keep him safe. Lance is eating on his special program because the assistants wife is doing all of the cooking.When he's in Austin he's been doing his normal riding too.

I had a conversation the other day with a friend and I shared my new theory that "2004 Lance" is waking up happy every morning. He has a new outlook and less stress than the 2003 Lance. We all see how he finished last year. Maybe his grip on winning five was too tight..you know like when you sieze up when you think you're gonna crash.

Well, Lance was too tight and couldn't react as well last year. But maybe this year, with a reason to wake-up and go to bed happy, his deathgrip has loosened.
That a good spin & I'll cling to it! nmOldEdScott

It should be my ass on that bike not hers =) ROFL!

Yes she may be better looking then I, yes she may have a finer bottombracket then I, absolutely no doubt about it, yes she is Lances' partner in crime, I am positive she is very persuasive since she is so easy on the eyes-

BUT DAVE HAD NO RIGHT ! I ordered that bike years ago!

hahahahah I'm kidding of course =P

I hope you got my last email. I spoke to Dave today, man he is the sh!t isn't he. Never met anyone so genuinely nice and is as cool as they come

Her looks are debatible. Skinny as a rail.

But her talent as a musician, songwriter, singer/performer are undeinable.

Saw her live last year at Ottawa Bluesfest (4th row) and the show was tremendous.

Some people I was talking with while in line to get in said they knew an "insider" that said she was a real biatch to deal with as far as working with her went. Real perfectionist, and ball breaker.
Gee, her and Lance seem to be two peas in a pod, then =) nmKG 361
