The Most Civilized Race
As much as I hate to admit it, much of my sunny summer July free time has been spent on the couch tuned into the Tour de France. I've never watched it as closely as I have been this year. It's an unpredictable affair, and you really can't beat those heli shots of the French countryside. OLN really has great coverage. They repeat it all day long, so you really can't miss it. I TIVO it anyway.

As races go, the Tour must be the most elegant, the most civilized, and perhaps the most demanding on earth. I really don't know how to sum up how much I love the Tour. It was fun to watch Lance beat the world year after year, but now that he's out, anything can happen. Vive Le Tour.

Plus, is there any other sporting event on earth that has a better theme song?

Speaking of the Kraftwerk connection, is it my imagination, of do those yellow and black tour animations look a lot like what Kraftwerk used in their live show? I'm wondering if it's the same folks behind all those animations. Also, some of the electronic bed music you hear on TV has me wondering. . .
