I heard that too, and while I immediately thought it was over the top, I also thought it was a great line.

Angels aren't beatified by the way. Only saints are. St. Roberto Heras of L'Angliru!

Well, not a -ism per-se, but I found Phil's comment amusing when they were showing the stage profile about 35 mins into Stage 15 coverage: "And here comes the grey bit, that shows how much of the course has already been covered, and that's what the riders like to see. Except they can't see this graphic, of course." :D
Someone fan me with a dictionary ;-) (nm)js5280
