I suppose you'd have to be incredibly clumsy to cut your finger off while making coffee… pretty sure it generally doesn't involve knives.
I guess you also have to be very famous for cutting your finger off to be breaking news. Sure wasn't breaking news when I stabbed myself in the hand a few years ago...

(And I know he didn't actually cut his finger off!)
 
There is more than one way to skin a rabbit, as the saying goes, and back on the African Savannah, the Great One probably just used a pointed stick and his bare hands. However, young Kellan's wee hands are not strong enough for that method so perhaps Froome Dad was showing the bairn how to do it with a knife when he suffered a spasm due to his broken neck. Thankfully nobody (at least no humans) lost an eye.
 
When does a knife enter the preparation of coffee? I'm from Seattle and witnessed every affected hipster version of coffee preparation and never seen a knife involved, unless service at Starbucks was really slow.
I don’t think coffee was ever officially given as a reason? It just sort of became a joke on here when making bad coffee was a good way to get out of the kitchen.
 
Lovely news for all his Japanese fans that The Great One will be taking part in at least a short TTT at Saitama in a few weeks. Likely though that the main reason for his trip is actually a recon of the Olympic road and ITT courses.
 
So Froome jumps the gun and suggests Bernal will ride in his Tour Support. Wonder what racing form he'll have and how that will work out?
You're doing the same thing the news outlets did with their sensationalist headlines. He said he'd need to be the strongest for that to happen so it's not as if he's announcing himself as the leader now. Still, he should have probably shown more tact

In response to being asked if Bernal would be prepared to support him:

"He has said he is," Froome said, before adding: "I need to be the strongest. If he’s the strongest, then I’ll be happy if he wins, because that’s how racing goes – the strongest rider wins."

At least he "knows" how racing goes...although he had to be told to stop attacking Wiggins. That was him, wasn't it?
