Who you calling a Bastille?

Happy Bastille Day to all our SSTOL fans in France.

Actually, so far as I know, there are no SSTOL fans in France. There are, however, a few in French-speaking Quebec, so we share the amour wherever we can.

Besides, I think the French are still incensed that we Yanks have taken their greatest national sporting event and made it our showcase, thanks first to Greg LeMond and currently to Lance Armstrong.

C'est la vie, as they say.

(Speaking of the Tour de France, do they ever wash that yellow jersey before passing it along? Or is the penalty for losing each stage having to ride behind the guy who's wearing that funky thing?)
