Give 'Em Hell, Lance

i watched Lance power his way to the top of l'Alpe d'Huez tonight. He's not just winning, he's dominating and embarrassing the competition. He passed Ivan Basso, like he was standing still. And this was a time trial! They're racing against the clock. i didn't expect to see Lance lapping guys.


Lance in yellow, Tiger in green, pinstripes in October. It's like something you expect to see every year.

One disturbing thing about the Tour, though. It gets pretty crazy along the route, with fans jumping in front of the riders, waving flags, running alongside and trying to touch them. i saw a streaker during stage 13 last weekend. But on TV today, Lance said that people were spitting and throwing shit at the American riders. That's bad news.

There were lots of fans, and it was a little scary. To me, sincerely, it was not a good idea to have a time trial at l'Alpe d'Huez. It's over now but a lot of German fans were just disgusting. C'est la vie.
i wonder what Lance's left-wing girlfriend Cheryl Crow had to say about that display of America-hating. Stupid Germans. The race organizers really should try to control them, i'd hate to see someone get hurt.

Stupid Germans

What the hell do Germans have to do with it? Stupid comment. The tour is held in France. If anyone it was most likely French fans but the article doesn't say. Yet another uninformed imbecile jumping to conclusions.

Since when can the French control the Germans?

But unlike Lance in yellow and Tiger in green, most people don't want to see pinstripes in October.

Yeah we shouldn't jump to conclusions that only stupid Germans were responsible. The stupidity should be shared equally across Old Europe. Shit, none of the appeaser nations have even been to the moon yet. I guess they can be proud of their free rider status at least.

It wasn't quoted in the article i linked, but Armstrong said they were Germans in his post race TV interview. He said they were wearing pink, the colors of Jan Ullrich's T-mobile team. Plus, i think Lance is able to recognize the German language when it's shouted at him.

Hey, i got nothing against Germans, i'm half German myself. But i don't like Germans who act like idiots.

The French, however, i do have something against, simply because they're French.

I love the French and Germans more every day.

By the way retards, the next time I post it will be a different name. I'm converting to Islam and will soon be assigned a Muslim name.

I was an athiest all my life but exposed enough to you christian and jew bastards showed me Allah was the only way. You will all have to do the same soon because we will make you!

I am devout in my beliefs and will do ANYTHING to stop the jew oppression of the brotherhood.

Allahu Akbar!

Obviously, he's off his meds.

Do they even HAVE medication for that? ;-)

Yes, but it's illegal in the States, probably because it's usually administered with the aid of gunpowder.

"Put a gun in the hand of a German and he turns towards France." An old adage, but true enough.

France is now over 25% Muslim; great place for Barney Grumble, alias Ali Ali Oxen-Free to move.

It is time to re-arm the Germans.
