Is A Yates a midget or is it just the blonde podium girl is 9' tall and thus in danger of finding herself accidentally married to Rod Stewart?

2nd funniest thing after yet another Larrington Production was Astana using practically their entire team to achieve the square root of Sweet F. Aru.

To be fair, he probably deliberately avoided making the gag, seeing as approximately several million other Wits Of The Internet were already on the case.

Whilst imbibing coffee and eating bread pudding at silly o'clock last Saturday morning, Adrian, sometime OTP, advised me that Aru should be pronounced inna Warren Zevon stylee, followed by 'Werewolves of London'. I commend it to the house.

:-)    My take on Adrian's comment was that he couldn't hear anyone mention Aru without his mentally following up with "werewolves of London" in a singing stylee.

Seconded.

Whatever, following that chat I too find myself in exactly the same position.

We BRITONS used to have to suffer from the Liggett & Sherwen Show, which was as much a part of the BRITSH summer as rain-delayed Test Matches, BRITONS getting dumped out of the first round of Wmbldn by unknown Peruvians and people expecting train operating companies to change the laws of physics but things have improved this year, and not just A Murray triumphing in SW19.  *** Boulting has always been an amusing chap, especially when paired with Evil1 C Boardman, but Super D Millar has come on by leaps and bounds since his first attempts in the comm box a year or two ago on the Tour de Yorkshire.  If someone could tactfully tell him not to bother with the hats...

Cracking ride by R Bardet yesterday, though, keeping his head when all around were losing theirs.

I agree that Super D Millar is great to have as a commentator, quick and knows what is going on - on the ball as they say. But when he does his pre-recorded stuff he need to pick up the pace and enthusiaZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz... oh did I just nod off there ... what was I saying, oh yes ... he sounds rather borZZZZZzzzzzzz... oh there I went again ... as you were.

Rats. Missed them going over the Col des Aravis, which I dun in 2007. Was heading for the Colombière as well but it starting pissing down and the missus & her Da were there so we had a tartiflette in the restaurant and bought a cow-bell for our cleaning-lady-person.

Fun watching Movistar guy trying to put on K-Way while going uphill round a car at front of peloton. Otherwise dozeworthy. Bandwidth on France TV's streaming site is crap.
