Stages 6 & 7

Blogger went AWOL for the last couple of days. And it looks like it took some of our posts with it. It seems to have come back now. But we are all still a bit disoriented here at the FGBC HQ.

It is for these sorts of situations that you should also follow the FGBC via Twitter: @fgbcdark. No, we do not just repost the same old stuff in both places like the OCC does. That is just lazy. The FGBC is (at least) a two headed media monster. The DSDPR (Dark Side's Dept. of Public Relations) tells us that we have multiple audiences who seem to have different preferences for keeping track of the adventures of the sweetest jersey in the world. So we have responded by setting up two different teams of media savvy communications experts in order to serve them best. That is how much we love "the people." Besides, this also gives us the ability to have conversations with ourselves. Which comes in handy when things are on the slow side.

In any case, we have had a couple of exciting days in the 2011 FGBC Giro d'Italia Pool. The past two stages were won by Bill and Prince Dan. And the overall standings have received a significant makeover. Steve's time at the top of the standings came to an abrupt end. He's dropped all the way down to 16th place. Bill has taken over the lead. Andrea is second, at 65 points off the pace. And Miriam sits in third place, another 7 points back. Jonny G is lurking just off the podium with a goofy grin on his face. He has been warning us for some time now that something big is about to go down. Perhaps the moment is nigh.

Full results and overall standings here.
