I guess not. I figured as much.

Well done, Caesar.:D

Caesar, I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess it was someone on a bicycle.
I dunno, just call it a hunch. :crazed: :D

Was it Jerry Lewis?

Or a mime on a bike wearing a red horizontal striped shirt with a bag of french bread in the back?

I didn't see any french bread. But he was wearing a beret and the basket on his bicycle was full of baguettes. :D

I don't actually remember his name, but I DO know his resting heart rate is 23 bpm!:eek:

Did he have one testicle or two? I know that the American that usually does well has only one so it's a legit question. I just can't remember his name. Speaking of which, these guys ride over 2500 miles in 2 weeks. That's pretty amazing! I don't know much about the Tour but I do respect their sport. I don't think I could force myself to drive 2500 miles in 2 weeks. :)

I take that back. I could force myself to drive 2500 miles in 2 weeks, just in case any of you NASCAR fans have any crazy ideas about auto racing being a sport and race car drivers being athletes.

This year's Tour is actually 2081 miles over the course of 3 weeks (and that generally is an average distance and time for Le Tour). And it happens to be the 100th Tour anniversary. AND Lance Armstrong is trying to tie the record for most Tour victories ever at 5, thereby truly immortalizing himself among the select few who have done that. So it should receive slightly more coverage this year. I can't wait. I actually get up at 2 or 3 am each morning in July to watch to the live coverage on the Outdoor Life Network. Lance is truly an American hero and is the epitome of what America stands for!;) ;) ;)

Tour de France? Wasn't that the nickname for the German Blitzkrieg in '39?
