Kennf1 said:How about we keep a running tally of idiotic things Phil Ligget says.
Phil: L.L. Sanchez in the start house now, time trialing not one of his strong points.
Paul: Actually he was the time trial champion of Spain last year.
(Later, as Cancellara was on course)
Phil: The descent is very technical and not well suited to Cancellara's abilities.
(Paul, maybe out of embarrassment, simply commentates as Cancellara destroys the "technical" descent).
Phil mis-identified the second rider on the course yesterday. The SECOND FREAKING RIDER. I am guessing that he had access to the same list of riders and start times we were all privy to, but for some reason chose to try the "look at the guy in the helmet and sunglasses" and try to ID that way. Bad choice.
