Lance fans and 09 TDF stage to Verbier

Since I'm feeling a little agitated this morning, I'm going to start a unifying thread.

Per Bruyneel's interview on cycling news, "Lance realised he wouldn't win the Tour after the first mountain top finish in the Alps, at Verbier. It was clear: Contador attacked and took 1'35" on Lance. Until then it was also unclear to me how strong Lance would be: it was a continuous experiment,"

This is for all of the Lance lovers who posted after the stage to verbier and slammed AC for attacking on that stage while stating at the same time that LA could have just "jumped" up to AC and Andy if he wasn't such a wonderful teammate. Not only would it have been the prudent thing to do, it was easy to see at that if LA could have, he would have and should have. He would only have been covering AS's chase of AC.
This is actually only one of many such instance that could be reviewed.

So to all those who were so ingratiating to Lance, here's to you.

LMAO!!!

Usually, I don't go for jpeg attacks. But this one smacked me in the face. hahaha

I don't normally go in for them either, but some situations just demand macros, and "cool story, bro" had already been taken, so I had to improvise. :p

Wow! That was freaking hilarious. Well done, sir. You owe me a keyboard....but I'll take a good set of tubulars if you don't have a keyboard.
