Giro d'Italia

I don't often post about sports here. Let's face it, I don't really like sports, but those of you that know me know that I'm a hard core cycling fan, and I just had to post about Ivan Basso's performance in the Giro d'Italia.

The second biggest stage race in the world, and he won it by over nine minutes...the biggest winning margin in 32 years. If this guy can hold this kind of form, he's going to dominate the Tour de France.

It's also important to note that one of Ivan's teammates is Bobby Julich. When I was a junior racer, Bobby used to kick my butt up and down the Rockies. Great to see him still riding well...I don't think I could ride around the block anymore..........

J,You could make a footlong around the block though. Think of it this way, could Bobby make a sanwich like you?

well, as long as J could earn as much as Bobby does racing/sponsorship/endorsements, he wouldn't mind. too bad Pat didn't take it to the next level...
