Default Mayo commits a MAJOR faux paux!!

Hey,

This photo (http://www.cyclingnews.com/road/2004...results/stage4)
will be the death of Mayo at Le Alpe d'Huez in the Tour de France.

It is the baseball equivelant of standing at the plate and watching
one of your home runs. In the Major Leagues, young guys will do that,
and it is a major sign of disrespect to a veteran pitcher. It usually
is remembered next time at the plate.

Mayo should have just kept his head down in a workmanlike respectful
manner.

Too bad. Now Lance will take the exact time out of Mayo in the next
uphill TT, as a way to send a message. Jordan used to do that with
points in the NBA. He'd school someone by the same number points, if
they ever got to boastful after a good performance. Very effective.

Thanks,
Ronde Champ (going to my first Tour de France in 2004!)

Admit it Kunich. This idiot makes the real RC look good by comparison.

Baseball is like watching paint dry -- in slow motion.

Apparently there is/was a television show in Britain that did just that:
broadcasting images of paint drying. People could call in to vote for their
favourite and vote out ones they disliked.
