(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

Only in America

Does a Mennonite who grew up in a non-sports atmosphere and with a hip that now needs replacing put himself in excellent position to win the world's most prestigious bike race.

In France.

Read this and see what I mean.

(And also note the comments that compare Floyd Landis with Lance Armstrong. Landis comes across as much more likable, but, then again, those who reach status worthy of having their likenesses engraved on Mount Rushmore are in such rarified air that they cultivate their images with greater care and are less approachable as a result).

At any rate, read the quotes and tell me what you think.

Personally, I'd rather be out on my bike than watching the race, but the Tour de France has been good theater this year and worthy of following.
