"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

oh, say can you see, indeed

It has started. It is underway.
The Tour is here.
{and it did not disappoint}
I knew it was going to be a good day when Bob Roll
started it all off with this:

“Its great to have Lance Armstrong back. After three years of myopic, egocentric zombies parading themselves in front of our noggins, it's great to have the killer back and stack the bodies high.”

Congratulations to Fabian Cancellara for taking yellow today.
Congratulations to Team Astana for winning the Team Classification
And congratulations to Lance for coming in tenth.
{not to shabby for a thirty-seven year old who broke his collar bone in April, and hasn't raced professionally since 2005}
