Dave Shields with more on the Tour de France. In my first post here I said I was going to try to convince you that this is more than a sporting event. It’s a peek into the soul of man. It’s a parable for life. How could I have conceived that we were on our way to watching the greatest Tour de France ever? How could the fates have drawn up a competition that illustrated my points any more clearly?
This year’s Tour has been marked by disaster and triumph. Twenty-four hours ago Floyd Landis was completely out of contention. Here’s an article I wrote on that topic. Well, today Floyd proved that even people like me, who have a very high estimation of him, did not estimate him high enough. What he accomplished on the road to Morzine was impossible. Words cannot describe what I saw today. I hope you’ll do yourself the favor of watching the televised coverage and seeing for yourself. It will be replayed on OLN several times today. At minimum, scan a live ticker like this one and experience for yourself the best that sport has to offer. WOW!
