A friend of mine has done L'etape du Tour a couple times, where they let you ride a stage (normally a bit of climbing) before the riders do it... you should do that.

Follow it up with the Alpe d'Huez...

Living in Geneva... I would rather see Croatia v. Belgium in the final, however, I am pretty sure it will be England v. France.  English and French fans are intolerable here...

05/29/2018 - 12:53pm If The Fugitive was nailing

If The Fugitive was nailing Sela Ward... That's a pretty decent level.

05/29/2018 - 11:36am Didn't recall Glen Rice being

Didn't recall Glen Rice being on that Lakers team in 2000... only thing I remember is that I had just moved to Los Angeles and had quite the drunken night when they won. I was not a fan, but when in Rome...

I was only able to recall Juwan Howard...

1961 Ford Shelby Cobra convertible... but now, it would be to be able to buy a Bugatti Veyron with cash.

May is the 5th month?? But then it would be cuatro de cinco...

04/27/2018 - 3:30pm I will be applying for Swiss

I will be applying for Swiss citizenship this year, so I think it is a requirement to dislike the French if you are Swiss... :-)

04/27/2018 - 1:35pm I live in Geneva and speak

I have lived in Geneva for 15 years and speak French... maybe it's just because the French around here also have bad attitudes so I lump in Parisians with that group.

Having said that... they did screw me with the SNCF rolling strike as my train to Paris was cancelled and I had to book an expensive flight... then on the same trip a few days later, the French air traffic controllers were on strike and delayed my plane... therefore, the French do not sit well with me.

04/27/2018 - 12:14pm The players spending time in

The players spending time in Paris should just make them more pissed off because they have to deal with French people! Hopefully they can channel that hostility and use it to destroy teams next season.

04/27/2018 - 10:47am Shhh... don't tell anyone. I

Shhh... don't tell anyone. I like the way the tights feel on my legs. Not sure why my phone corrected Paris to Pairs...

04/27/2018 - 10:40am I was just in Pairs a few

I was just in Pairs a few weeks ago... would have been great to run into Harbaugh in the street.

04/19/2018 - 6:49am It's possible. The one in Ann

It's possible. The one in Ann Arbor was run by the former owner of The Arena... who is now in prison for tax evasion (Or served time already).

You could have a free meal after your shift, but you could NEVER sit at the bar and drink.

04/19/2018 - 2:06am When were you there? I lived

When were you there? I lived at 723 Packard in 97-98... I think we lead the same life. General Tso's Chicken from Oriental Express for lunch. Once I had ordered there enough, the lady would give me the dinner portion for lunch prices!

04/19/2018 - 2:00am I worked at Bennigan's! You

I worked at Bennigan's! You got as much food off a modified menu (Turkey O'Toole and Potato Soup) for each shift. I actually gained weight working there!

Also Bell's Pizza on the corner of State and Packard had a large cheese pizza and large drink for $5 take away deal... I saw that they have now replaced it with a Dominos.

03/30/2018 - 2:14am But we have lost when Duncan

But we have lost when Duncan Robinson has not scored 6 points. So I will stick with my superstitions and hope that he scores 6 points early. I will also wear the same block M Nike Dri-fit shirt that I have worn throughout the B10 tourney and all NCAA tourney games so far... :-)

03/29/2018 - 4:30pm Yeah, it was when he was

Yeah, it was when he was fouled within the last 2 minutes if I recall correctly. I was so nervous!

While I don't mind Livers starting, I would love to see Robinson in and get his two 3s right away! Like, call timeout after the tip to put him in.

03/29/2018 - 2:48pm I will only be happy when

I will only be happy when Duncan Robinson gets his 6th point of the night.... hope it is in the first 10 minutes.

03/29/2018 - 5:24am Nice! I will be going to Tel

Nice! I will be going to Tel Aviv in April. Can't wait to eat breakfast at Benedict!

03/29/2018 - 5:12am Where are you that it's a

Where are you that it's a 1:09am start?

03/29/2018 - 5:11am I think it's 3 hours of you

I think it's 3 hours if you don't log in with a valid network subscription. I use my sister's Dish Network to get all the games. The quality on the app is better than using her DishAnywhere, but I will see what gives me the best option come early Sunday morning.

I have lost sleep the past few weekends because of the start times of the games, but no way am I missing this live!! Did the same in 2013... watched the title game which finished close to 6am... went to work at 8am. This time, I am on vacation the day after!

03/29/2018 - 1:04am With the start time in

With the start time in Switzerland being so late, I don't think my wife would be too happy if I invited people over at midnight to watch the game at my place.

I did however buy an Amazon Fire TV and have installed Express VPN on it along with the March Madness app to watch the games. The game on Saturday should be aired free on that app. I think the title game will require me to subscribe to CBS All Access app to watch. Or, I will watch over my sister's DishAnywhere account.

03/27/2018 - 12:38pm Same here! I will be in my

Same here! I will be in my own executive suite on the couch in my place. Except that the beer is most likely just as expensive (the trouble with living in Switzerland)...

03/19/2018 - 2:51am Losing sleep again this week.

Losing sleep again this week. 12:37am (Friday) start for me in Europe. If it's anything like the Houston game, it won't finish until after 3am... but hey, this happens only once a year and losing sleep for a good cause!

03/18/2018 - 3:16am I am at a buddy's apartment

I am at a buddy's apartment in Chamonix and he has a projector in his place. I was up at 3am for the game and was damn tired just before Poole sank the game winner at 5:20am. Couldn't sleep after that!

Time to celebrate with a few snowboard runs this morning.

03/16/2018 - 7:57am Game start times like last

Game start times like last night are hard to watch live in Switzerland... had to watch it this morning without checking the score. Can't wait to wake up at 2:30am on Sunday to see the next round game... unless I head to the bar Saturday night and come home to watch after it closes!

03/07/2018 - 2:00pm But if he moves to Europe,

But if he moves to Europe, he'll join the crowd that doesn't like night games. It's so painful to occupy your time until 2 am on Sunday morning...

03/02/2018 - 9:21am This year's B10 tourney

This year's B10 tourney schedule is good for me being overseas... 8:30 pm start... beer to be flowing! GO BLUE!

02/22/2018 - 12:57pm Lesson of the day.... don't

Lesson of the day.... don't hire a coach with a last name that starts with "P" and ends with "no".

(Also had a joke about Pitino/Paterno but I decided to call the whole thing off)

I grew up in Napoleon... it's a small internet world!

I was hitting on Mark Campbell's girlfriend my freshman year at a party thrown by the women's gymnastics team... oh the memories!

Brian Griese went there 156 times in 2017???

01/11/2018 - 9:40am I would normally suggest

I would normally suggest Bell's Pizza on the corner of Packard and State, but it no longer exists. The $5 large cheese pizza and large drink take away special was my dinner at least 3 nights a week!!

12/24/2017 - 9:00pm I am in the championship of

I am in the championship of my league... finished today with 139.2 and my opponent is on 65.02 with Le'Veon Bell, DeAndre Hopkins, and the Eagles defense remaining....

Hoping that Bell and Hopkins have average days tomorrow. I am cautiously optimistic about this one.

If we can't have Charles Woodson... why not Rod Woodson? A man can dream!

Patiently waiting for the Hello: Charles Woodson post...

I have Antonio Brown in my lineup this week. I've already clinched a spot in the playoffs and I am 2 games up on the 2nd place team. I can afford an egg here... was thinking of rolling with Mike Evans instead, but it's hard to decide.

Did someone hit 88 MPH in their Delorean?

Antonio Bass.... too soon?

11/15/2017 - 12:25pm I find I can't even download

I find I can't even download the apps overseas. However, I have access to my sister's Dish Anywhere account so I have easily watched all the games. Don't know about AD... maybe contact the reps for the Alumni Association in Abu Dhabi? Their email iss listed on the Alumni site.

11/15/2017 - 1:00am I already pulled the trigger

I already pulled the trigger on getting tickets to The Game. I am flying in from Switzerland with my wife and I didn't want to be without tickets so late, just in case Michigan was having a magical run.

Paid a bit of a premium, but got tickets in section 21. Now all I hope for is dry weather.

11/12/2017 - 8:33am I was hoping for a 3:30 start

I was hoping for a 3:30 start since I will be flying into Detroit at 1:45 on Saturday... going to be difficult to avoid the score...

11/10/2017 - 4:30pm Wouldn't that be P00PS?

Wouldn't that be P00PS?

What? You never noticed that The Knowledge always had time stamps from the future??

Had a glass of orange juice... going to have some coffee now and wait for my hangover from last night to kick in.

10/30/2017 - 2:17pm 9am kickoffs when I lived in

9am kickoffs when I lived in Los Angeles were great! The bartender at the alumni bar in Santa Monica knew that when I walked through the door to start pouring my Murphy's Irish Stout! I have no shame to start drinking before noon...

Buddy the elf?? He had quite a strong and accurate arm during the snowball fight! Do want.
