In Denmark, where we actually use the word "etape", we call it the "King Stage".I would have thought it was because 'etape' (stage) is a feminine word. It would probably be more accurate to call it the royal stage.
Maybe we just like card games better than chess?In Denmark, where we actually use the word "etape", we call it the "King Stage".
Of course, in Danish, we don't really have gendered nouns.
Phil's still around? I did not know that. Guy said he would retire the second he learned that Lance was taking PED's. I remember thinking that was a really dumb thing to say.I'm watching the last NBC coverage in the U.S. I love Phil's voice and excitement. He's a good guy. I'm wondering how he's feeling about being corrected (almost always appropriately) by Bob Roll about 15 times per broadcast. I've come to appreciate Bob Roll--seemed like a big goofball at first, but he adds insight and accuracy. But it is not the same pinball ride of a conversation like Phil and Paul used to have.

I loved Phil's commentary back in the day. Calls like "Here they come under the 1 km to go banner, mouths like goldfish" always made a stage even more exciting, and will always stick in my memory. He was one of a few commentators who drew me into the sport. His off-the-cuff commentary was top stuff, and the chemistry with Paul was genuine, even when one pissed the other off.
Is Chris Horner part of these broadcasts? If so, in what capacity? If I was Phil, I'd feel better being corrected by Horner rather than the goofball Roll.
p.s. Are you really the son of David Duke?
I haven't seen him do that, but I don't usually get to watch the entire broadcast. I usually get in about 90 minutes in. I think this may be a one-off or at least special arrangement with Blythe. For all I know, he is doing double duty.Is it true that he'll randomly interview the riders during the racing, despite not actually being allowed?
And I thought Blythe was with Eurosport...
Oh lord, is someone still employing Liggett? Always thought that guy was a chancer and should have laid on his sword after the Armstrong thing.Seems good ol' Bob knows how to deal with these missteps in a polite and tactful manner.
Kudos, Bob. No need to bark at the guy and tell him he's a useless piece of stool.
We're not talking the Cuban Missile Crisis here, after all. But yeah, maybe time some people need to be put out to pasture.
And I'm definitely not referring to my man Carlton Kirby.
Well compared to what came afterwards (Kirby & the pedo) or instead (Liggett) Duffield was quite likable wasn't he!?Life is a continuous learning experience. Just last week I learned that people like the ES Recipe Guy. Today I learn that people actually liked David Duffield.
I only said I preferred him to Liggett who should have retired to his South African game farm a long, long time ago.Life is a continuous learning experience. Just last week I learned that people like the ES Recipe Guy. Today I learn that people actually liked David Duffield.
