Le Tour is over — The sadness begins

So Le Tour De France is over.  Arguably one of the greatest sporting events of the year has wrapped up and a rookie Alberto Contador has won.  What an incredible tour, filled with drama, scandal, crashes, heartbreak, and inspiration.

I was talking with Lydia about the tour and she says she doesn’t watch it because Lance isn’t in it anymore.  And to me that’s all the more reason to watch.  Because you always knew lance was going to win.  But this year I really had no idea, it could have gone any which way, none of the favorites could do it.  It came down to a dude who a few years ago was in a coma and had brain surgery, who came out of that and raced hard and fast.  That’s the fun of it.

But now I am filled with great sorrow as I wait for football season to start so that this sports void can be once again filled in my life.  I used to love baseball and basketball and now I never would have guessed that I would love football and one bike race more than any other sport.  Crazy.  Oh well Happy Monday!
