Tour de America

Isn't it about time we changed the name of this bicycle race?

Americans own this bad boy: First, Greg LeMond (victories in 1986, '89 and '90); then Lance "Stretch" Armstrong, the monorchid wonder (seven consecutive wins, from 1999 through 2005); now Floyd Landis, who finally found a way to silence all of the teasing he tolerated growing up with a name like "Floyd."

Seriously, when was the last time a Frenchman won the Tour de France? 1985, that's when. Lindsay Lohan wasn't even born yet.

And if Tiger Woods keeps this up, we'll rename the British Open too.

We could call it... I don't know... the Colonies Classic or something.

Earl Woods would have liked that.

How about first changing things like 'world series'?
