Yellow jersied water boy?!!(12 posts)

Its kind of a weird sight seeing Pena hauling water for Lance. I guess he still knows his place. Probably took some humility though.

My guess is that he very much understands that if he was not carrying water for Lance, he probably wouldn't be in the yellow jersey. It is little funny to see, however.
Real humility is not carrying water ...Humma Hah

... its forming the team in a circle around Armstrong in the peloton to protect him from crashes.

There's a lot of chess in this sport. You'll sacrifice a knight as easily as a pawn to protect the king.

They couldn't have any one of the other 7 riders carry water for Lance? That's a really un-classy move from Postal...
Maybe he offered?Humma Hah

What if he said, "Hey, guys, I'm thirsty. Who wants a drink?" For the guy in the yellow jersey to offer, now THAT would be classy!
Anyway you look at it,MXL02

it is very cool for VHP to be the first Colombian to wear the yellow jersey, and do so on his birthday, and then get to wear it a second day as well.

Make that three days in a row! He's wearing it tomorrow as well.

I wouldn't bet on him wearing it after tomorrow's satge.
Johan Brunnyel already told him not to do that anymore...Bruno S

it does look weird. (Read it in cyclingnews). Common Floyd do something for the team.
Where to find it?Humma Hah

First, Pena DID go get a bottle for Lance on his own initiative ... I think that's very classy.

Second, the unnamed problem of which Armstrong spoke near the start of race was a stomach virus picked up from his kids last week.
