Day one of the Tour, day 45 of bar prep

The Tour started today. I’ve been too busy to watch it. And I’ve pretty much resigned myself to not following the race this year as I have in years past. Too much on my plate to burn up a few hours a day watching television. That said, I can still read about it! Philippe Gilbert is a god damn baller. See http://www.cyclingnews.com/tour-de-france/stage-1/results.

Baller.  Absolute baller.

Baller. Absolute baller.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. …dude’s won a lotta (& lotto) winners jerseys & this is one he deserves…

  2. Shit yea, no prologue to ignore this year, straight into racing, Cuntador OTA and Gilbert in yellow, shaping up to be a good Tour!

  3. …it is not in my nature to actually wish ill will on someone but i CAN hope that spanish bitch never gets to use that fucking ‘pistolero’ routine during this tour…

    …i also wouldn’t feel bad if he DID use it & someone else with a bad attitude like mine, took exception to it & stuffed that pistolero digit up his tainted fucking ass…

    …but that’s just me vehemently sayin’…

  4. BGW, I guess you’re revelling in the bullshit spewing from Roll and (cock)Hummer’s mouths this morning about Contador not being a great champion and the ‘sportsmanship’ bullshit about the dropped chain last year. Like Roll ever won ANYTHING in his life in cycling. I just turned the Tour off. Fuck this biased sports reporting.

  5. …@bikescag – you will not find my name on any result list on any european race ever…i was never close to being that good…how about you ???…

    …bob roll was there…he was a domestique & he has never intimated that he was anything BUT a domestique, which as i’m sure you are aware, being such an afficionado of the sport, is a valuable commodity in the team sport of cycling…

    …in fact, roll is rather comically self effacing when describing his efforts & contributions to the sport…

    …yet bob roll WON just by being there & i would suggest that every teammate he ever had would praise his cycling efforts throughout the years…

    …you may not appreciate roll’s opinion (or mine) but the fact of the matter is that you are the one being biased…

  6. @05-Biased? There’s always msnbc.
    @06-Race? A good day is one where I can ride to the store for groceries and beer.
