Why we love Dave Z

The article in the New York Times today on the time trial and everyone's relative position is one of those masterpieces of current journalism where the title is all about LA even though he's not really the story.  For non-cycling press, its pretty good.  But like any journalist with sense, the author found Dave Z irresistible.  He must be to journalists as shiny objects are supposed to be to fish. Anyway, the last lines of the article are priceless:

He said there was a reason for his success, and Zabriskie — known for his dry wit — may or may not be serious in his explanation.

“I truly believe I can manipulate the earth’s forces and use them to my advantage,” he said.

I respect Levi, the other nominal subject of the article, but compared to that he has all the personality of a Land's End sweater.
