3.14

Happy Pi Day to all!

Just a few bits again, Paris Nice made for some great TV. The way the Spaniards attacked Zberg on the Col d'Èze makes Frank Breure look like a fat house cat. It was super agressive and impressive the way Floyd defended his win.

Speaking of great TV, awesome to see the family back in the rotation. I wish i could have been at Lance's place to see it and eat, sounds like they did it right. Won't ruin anything if you haven't caught it yet, but is he or isn't he? I'm thinking if he is, then they would have confirmed it for the greater shock value, the fact that you don't know means he's isn't.

Some great lines too, i love Chris in the hospital to Hesh's son-in-law, "Is that a f***in catheter?".
Or Tony at the funeral, "Does he have to be here? ya f****in AA sponsor?"

The tivo caught Conan's trip to Finland which was hilarious.

Pretty interesting reading about making a messenger bag out of vinyl poster material and the connections with the golden ratio.

Judging from the pre-premiere Trailer, he isn't. On the other hand, Season 6 could be one long dream sequence or have a plot hook like "The Sixth Sense."

Training Q: Any websites that put out decent, basic plans to build to a century ride? Anne wants to crank out a few this summer.

That one was brilliant!

Here's the Bicycling Magazine one...

but i think she could get by with less than 6 days a week. If i rode 5 i think i could go pro. :)

Thanks. Anne's pretty solid on the bike. She could be something if she had time to train. I'm even slower than when we were at SHC -- which means I basically move backwards. But we've got tons of races and charity rides in Middle TN, so we're hoping to get more involved this season. In the Fall, we have the Jack & Back, a 100-mile round tripper to Jack Daniels Distillery, my kind of excursion.

i can't begin to explain why you would do that

David said...

Lance, that does sound like my kind of ride. And go head Anne with the bike skillz!

This is Momma Barb again. I saw the end of the Paris-Nice. Nice! The Conan in Finland was the best! We are somewhat on the same page, no? Given the age difference! See ya soon, I hope.

Sounds like we're watching the same stuff alright! Nice was fine, i would like to visit and ride there.

San Remo was incredible to watch, if i lived there i would probably only ride bikes.
