Three kisses for Lance?seyboro

I know I cannot be the only one who has wondered: Why does Arnstrong handout the triple cheek to the podium girls while the rest of the peloton only get two? What gives?

I've never seen Lance kiss the rest of the peloton. So I'm really no help.

I don't really know. Maybe he doesn't know that the correct way is only two. Maybe the rest of the peleton is wrong.

According to the supreme brains of the family, it was French royalty who got to kiss three times instead of the traditional two. Monsieur Armstrong, vous etes arrive...
P.S.: Do forgive the lack of accents, I cannot find the ALT+3-digit code for French characters.

Actually different customs prevail in different regions of Eruope. I know for example that in Luzern Switzerland my Mother's home town three kisses are the norm. However in other parts of Switzerland people only give two.

Why Lance goes for three who knows, but all I know is that if I was on the pondium with some of those hotties I'd definitely go for 3 :).
You da' man!! nmseyboro
