    TdF?

    Soooo.... will the guy on drugs win, or will the guy on drugs win?

    Neither. They already caught the guy on drugs. Based on the time and money spent catching him, he was obviously the only one. Thus, having a massive advantage over all of his competitors, he had to be caught and punished. So there are no guys on drugs left to win.

    That's either great sarcasm, or completely adorable naiveté.

    It's funny that you mention that because it's one of a long series of mini-bets that my wife and I have on the TDF this year. The mini-bet for Teejay is "Will Teejay abandon the TDF due to a respiratory illness?" I'm going to bet yes on that one.

    Almost TdF time...

    See, this is why I posted here. In the TdF forum you're expected to be all serious and analytical.

    Here, we get the over-under for the number of spectators impaled by their own selfie-sticks... The important stuff.

    I've got a new TdF drinking game; on the first big climb, 1 shot for every roadside fan running along dressed only wearing a thong (or even just a tube sock), 2 shots for full-frontal.....
    I'm upping my standards;
    Up yours!

    This is The Lounge... so it kinda saddens me that you felt the need to pad that with the second possibility.

    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Well my early prediction is wrong, again.

    I believe LA was always clean, but in order to extort money, there was a vast conspiracy - some believe Russians were involved - to frame him.

    The only way he could get back into WADA events was to "agree" he was doping, and claim he had "given up."

    Now, the only part of this grim story to be seen is: does her return and dominate TdF again, or will he go dominate the world of the Marathon?

    I quit caring after Pantani and Chipollini left the pro peloton.

    For me, the Giro has gained the passion the Tour has lost.
