Monday Night Poll


Have you ever had the opportunity to chat with a cycling "super-star?"
If so, share the details. (hint hint) ;-)
If not, who would you want to talk with and what would you ask?

Very clever K.O-;)! For the displayed person I would have asked how the hip was, how's training. However if I was in a deep sleep when the call was recieved, I would have asked "who is this" multiple times, (despite being told who it was multiple times)and would have allowed him to try to make conversation because I thought I was being pranked and was totally caught off guard!

And what is the back story here for those of us out of the loop?

My husband was at a restaurant in San Diego and was sitting at the table next to Floyd Landis. My husband asked Floyd to call me, which he did. I was sleeping and awoke to "hi this is Floyd Landis". End of story.

I'd be a little creeped out if Floyd called me late at night...

But just a little.

I made a triple espresso for Greg Lamond once years ago in Nashville. He was the Celebrity rider in an event and he and the handlers came into the place to get him his hearts desire. I was pregnant with my first son at the time. And in Nashville they have this gourmet reese cup called a colts a bolt, rich enough to knock a normal person into a comma, instantly. (I have seen them in airports too, they are very tasty) Anyway while I was trying to make the triple as fast I could he ate three of them, in, oh maybe 3 bites.(they are huge by the way) After they left I had to go into the back and sit down, it made me sick to my stomach that he ate three of those things that fast. Still puts a lump in my throat in the retelling.
