Default Frankie Andreu - Yay or Nay?

Frankie has access to Lance that is unlike that of any other reporter. Plus
he seems like a nice guy and seems to warm as he gets a few q's in.

IMO, no Frankie=less Lance.

Frankie does a good job with the time given him. 10 sec to interview someone,
10 sec isn't much time to ask and receive an answer to your question. He needs
more time to get into the swing of the things. I enjoy hearing him explain the
tech stuff...

I don't know if less, but certainly less open. The only time I have seen him
at ease is when Frankie is talking to him. Imagine how he would react to
certain other ex-cyclists. Greg Lemond asks him, "So how does it feel to
have a chance at beating my virtual Tour record?"

Good observation, but I hope it isn't true. I like to believe that
Lance wouldn't disregard the role OLN plays in U.S. coverage (whomever
might be interviewing him, and however much you do or don't care for it)
- if not for the sake of fostering cycling interest in the U.S. then for
the sake of influencing his own charity work (more face time = more
contributions)

Does anyone else feel uncomfortable when Frankie Andreu's segments come
on OLN and he starts asking questions?

The guy certainly has experience as a Tour rider, but when it comes to
asking a question, he just can't seem to come up with a good one.

It reminds me of the 1990 Tour coverage on ABC Sports and "Good Morning
America" with http://www.icechampions.com/saltlake...ng/openingcer-
emony/o16.jpgBeth Ruyak asking Greg LeMond, "How much do those
(tri-)bars help?"
