2nd Giro live thread "Saves the Day"



Dear Podium Cafe:

Rock on commentators!!!

Saturday got called into work early in A.M. Gunna miss stage 14 - ASOLO- and so I did.

Came home, check VDS pts. - got a few [20], Switched to Cycling news read boring report.

Saw & dissected GC time slots.

Returned to Podium Cafe', post thread - and then there........ On the front page........

Under the photo of the winner......... in blue letters........... capitalized............. all alone,

read the following 5 words

link to the 2nd live thread...

I began to read, and read, and read. And the more I read, the faster I read. Then I read with feeling......

Then I read even faster, ......and then I read with humor, and I read with afirmation,

And as the team ( the commentary team )....( the Cafe commentary team) crested ASOLO, I read with furver, and speed, I read with haste, I read with the wind in my face, I read with desperation, faster and faster & faster I read flying down ASOLO on the wheel of Nibali, on the wheel of Basso, taking wide turns with Evans. There I was blazing through the thread comment,  flying down the slope with fearless Frank Schlek { even though he wasn't there}, careful on each hairpin.... wary of the wet pavement. Kilometers clicking off 20 K, then 15K, then 10K, all the way down, seeing in my rearview mirror, >>the times as other riders began their perilous descents down ASOLO. >Until, finally 3k, then 1 Kilometre remaining, >>Ultimo Kilometre! On the Wheel as Vincenzo, then Basso, then Scarponi & Evans crossed the line. The Winner!!! Podium Cafe commentary at it's finest, I was....... well simple put I was filled with the ultimate feeling of CHUFFINESS.

Thank you cafe members - keep up the good commentary, 'cause..... well, I gotta work on Sunday as well.

I expect a full and exciting commentary on Zoncolan.
