Yup, it's official. America's team, HTC Columbia, is clubbing Sky like a baby seal.
Looks to me like this thread was created to have some fun, take the pi$$, and get a rise out of a few people who fart through Union Jack knickers...

What an utterly stupid thread.
... and it worked!

2 wins to 1 as of Jan 21, I don't think anyone is handing out the Crown or the goat horns at this point. But considering their technical, nutritional, and psychological advantages Sky really should be leading HTC 3 to 0.

Nooooo. I would never do something like that. This is a malicious libel on my good character. I protest my innocence.

Too bad certain members have no sense of humor.

Guess I've been off the internet too long, and forgot about the wonderful practice of writing something one knows to be stupid, in order to elicit the reponse that it is stupid, and thereby to gain a victory of some sort or other over the person who responds. I must keep up.

I guess that you have been off the Internet for so long that you forgot the meaning of sarcasm.

Anyway, the score is now HTC: 3 Sky: 1 (0 if you only count ProTour races and GTs)

Sorry, Brits, America's team is kicking butt.

Times are dire when Uncle Sam needs three Germans, two Aussies, a Kiwi, and an Austrian to kick Britain's b*tt.
We just want to make sure the butt kicking is thorough and complete. If we have to enlist the help of some non-American support staff then so be it. Alexander needed non-Macedonians as well.

You had better dig up Churchill and dust him off. The Battle of Britain is on, baby. It's starting in Australia, we're rolling, and there's no stopping us.

+1.

But then isn't it the American way to claim foreign countries' assets as its own? ;) :p

So Bro, is this thread your first step into trolldom? What's up next, you going to start threads in the clinic about how clean certain top riders are?!:D

At least Alexander used the occasional Macedonian. HTC is more like the French foreign legion.

We're okay with using mercenaries. It has become the centerpiece of our military philosophy.

me too. can't help seeing columbia as the continuation of telekom. To me, columbia is american in the way that CSF Navigare is irish, or Diquigiovanni is venezuelan.
We had to grant the team citizenship and political asylum from oppression in Europe. I think some members of the team were upset about nations that still have queens or some other such archaic nonsense. The team is no different than the rest of us here.

I, for one, welcome our new European overlords
 
Lord. Please, don't post the notorious picture of her cleavage, everyone! On topic: I have no doubts that columbia will have more wins than any other team this year, as well. Hard not to, with Cavendish & Greipel on the team. That's why I will be rooting for everyone that looks, in any given race, to give them a run for their money, whether it's Sky or Fotoon.

You can still chose to remove the picture yourself, before the mods do it. That's tasteless.
