Svein Tuft, Honorary Assistant Captain?

His teammates on Canada's Olympic road cycling team, Michael Barry and Ryder Hesjedal, may be more well-known. But Tuft seems more interesting. Check out the profile of him here. He probably won't win the race today, but that doesn't mean we can't cheer for him. Everyone seems to be hyping a Bettini - Valverde showdown, which probably means that won't happen either. CBC will be showing it (or at least an edited version of it) this evening.

Assistant Captain??!!
He deserves to be Captain.
He could totally take Floyd.

Whoa. That's out of line.

There's only one honorary captain. And it's a lifetime term.

Well, maybe the FGBC Cardinals better start brewing the 'tea', so Svein can take over.
