    I don’t know if I’m just confused, but the title led me to believe he was…well…short. He looked rather not-short to me. Looks like it’ll be a good film though.

    A few summers ago, I too had this dream. How many pounds of japanese-made bicyle parts have physically supported the tour before the first Japanese rider particpated in 2009? I think it’s about time a real man shows up to crash the pretty white boy party, and re-define dope. I hope this happens, and can inspire the wealth surrounding the tour to invest their resources more responsibly. I still don’t understand how my Nationally funded postal service was allowed to sponsor Lance. I don’t see many federally sponsored bicycle messengers. How do taxpayers benefit?

    Life is unfair Grinch. Now go buy some stamps to support the pretty white boy party!
