Bring lawn chairs tonight

We'll have a fire going in the back yard.

Marcus and I are watching th Olympic RR. Tuft is long gone at this point. Just A. Schleck, Rebellin and Sammy Sanchez with about 10 km to go. That course looks pretty cool.

Sanchez wins, Barry holds on for 9th, at 16 seconds. That's better than Valverde and Bettini. It was the wheelsucker who ignited the decisive peloton-shattering attack on the final lap. Cancellara launched a wicked downhill attack to catch the leaders with 2km to go. He takes bronze. Sweet.

Still time to order a jersey? I think I'll need an XL? Or would my petite 6'2" 200 pound frame demand a Large? Short sleeve please...

sherry wasn't to impressed with the RR but I thought it was a scorcher. Very dramatic and Cancellara was a monster coming down that hill to bridge the gap.
