I posted a video yesterday of Jan Ullrich opening up a can of whoop ass in the 2004 Tour de France. Later that night at home, as I was making dinner and throwing crackers at the little ones, my wife was going through the mail box offerings.
She got a post card from our man Stevil of All Hail the Black Market. Completely unexpected. And, totally relevant. How’s that for a coincidence?
It’s a photograph of Jan Ullrich in the 2004 Tour. Kicking ass. Look at that face? You think you know pain? Try carrying the weight of second place around on your shoulders for a few years (TDF 2nd in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003). Then put the hopes and dreams of all Germany up there too.
How’s that feel? Fucking hurts, don’t it?by
