The post-Armstrong Tour de France

This year's edition of the Tour de France has started and has been already rocked by a doping scandal. In fact, two of the favorites for this year's tour, last year's second place finisher, Ivan Basso and previous winner, Jan Ulrich, have been already kicked out due to the doping scandal. So this year's tour is wide open and Lance's Discovery Channel teammates, George Hincapie, is now one of the favorites. This year could also be the year of the Americans because along with Hincapie, there are four other Americans, Floyd Landis, Levi Leipheimer, Bobby Julich and Salt Lake City's own David Zabriskie who have a decent shot at either winning or finishing in the top ten. Of course, this is all a part of the evil BusHitlerChennyRoveRumsfled plot to undermine the French economy, take over the oil fields of Iran/Iraq/Saudia Arabia, kill the whales and rape the environment, so don't be surprised if this gets no air time in the MSM. The more things change, the more things stay the same.
