Sketch of the Day 7.9.08

Today's Sketch is in honor of the tour de france which started 5 days ago in Brest, France. Aside from one of the top sprinters in the world being un-invited to participate a few weeks before the start for an out of competition positive result for Cocaine, the tour this year has been absent of the Drama of the last few far. 3 weeks is a long time for journalist to only concentrate on 190 guys riding their bikes. If they can't find some dirt on the riders, they usually make it up. It is exciting to watch as it unfolds now in this post Lance era where you don't know who is going to win. There is also something therapeutic about watching them pedal across France, especially as i lay in bed at night watching the 10 o'clock rebroadcast of the days stage. Which should not be confused with the 6:30 am live broadcast or the 10:30 am race action rebroadcast, the 12:30 race action rebroadcast, the 3:00 race action rebroadcast, or the 6:00 Prime time expanded coverage.
Either way, if done properly, it is a great healthy sport that is easier on your body than that miserable sport people call "Running".

"Oop... I almost forgot. I won't be able to make it fellas. Veronica and I trying this new fad called uh, jogging. I believe it's jogging or yogging. it might be a soft j. I'm not sure but apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It's supposed to be wild."
