It is even more impressive when you consider that he just won the Tour de France. Lance Armstrong should be proud!

Everything I've read indicates the French love Landis. They're saying it's the most gutsy comeback in more than 50 years. Landis didn't just whoop the French, he left Spaniards, Germans, Brits, other Americans -- you name it, he left them behind.

What is with this nearly incessant need to sneer at the French?

I'm thinking help might be available for that.

Years of jealous anabolic steroid inspired finger pointing will do that to ya'.



Maybe your Birkies are too tight.

Environmentally responsible way to deal with global warming? Jim

PS: The tweaking of the French on this is like striking up a conversation with a rabid Red Sox fan about Bucky Dent. Not everyone enjoys it - but some do. In the Chinese Menu of things to pick on the French about, had they not spent so much energy concocting doping stories and trying to interfere with Lance's endeavors, this would be truly meaningless. Like Bucky Dent, unless you are a rabid Red Sox fan. Then it just seems to work. Jim
