    I'm bummed that Quintana is sitting it out. He would have been one of the top contenders. He focused on the Giro D'Italia and it worked out - he won that race. Maybe next year he wins the Tour.

    The Tour, the French countryside, and sunflowers remind me of summer. I love it. :)

    I also noticed that the broadcasts are scheduled for 6 hours. Are they now going to show each stage in its entirety as opposed to picking it up 1/4 - 1/3 of the way through?

    Cavendish goes down hard, in pain and holding his shoulder. His race may be over.

    Quasi-interest in the World Cup was about as far as I can go with giving a shit about international sports this year...

    i love sports with less commercials than the NBA and NFL. if you're watching either of those, you're not watching sports.
