You know which kid, the one that took out Lance with the yellow bag. Ok say the kid is your kid, what would you do to your kid.

Me: I would aaaahhhhh I don't have kids, but if I did, I would take the kid to Lance and make the kid say sorry and offer to clean his bike.
Put the yellow bag on Ebay (nm)firstrax

I love my kid and he loves Lance so I would go to Fiji for a while and insulate him from flak.

have him write a letter of apology to LanceDougSloan

Then Lance would probably have us over for dinner or something after the Tour.

I won't hit my kid, but that doesn't mean this one shouldn't be beaten.

The kid was doing what EVERYONE else was doing, cheering on his heroes. He wasn't any closer than thousands of others. It was an accident. I'd tell him he just became a part of history and encourage him to write a book. ;-)

Didn't realize it was the kid, at first thought it was old man..fbg111

From the video, I thought at first it was that old guy standing practically in the middle of the road. Only in the slow-mo replay did I see the yellow bag snag Lance's brake lever. What is interesting is how tight that kid must have been holding onto his bag, and not letting go. I probably would have made him write Lance a letter to apologize, and include that bag with it. From all accounts, it sounds like the kid inadvertently did Lance a favor rather than harm...
