Since this weekend was Milan-San Remo, one of my most favorite races to watch, I was pretty freakin’ happy to see Cavendish take the win on the line after almost 300

Sure, there are plenty of folks out there that think he is cocksure, and an arrogant prick, but aren’t most really good sprinters? Zabel, really being the exception to that rule, hell even Petacchi punched a bus once because he lost and broke his hand and all.

I was surprised when earlier today, I surfed over to MSNBC.com, and there was a headline on there about MSR.

Oh well, at least they had an article in there, but the headline was wicked stupid.
