So, they've got the TV on at work all the time, showing sports, right? And today it's the Tour De France. I am occasionally peeking up to look at it, mostly so I can tell my husband about it and make him jealous. I think they're in Belgium or something - I saw some cool castles with moats around them earlier. I also got to see a SPECTACULAR pile up when I was leaving a meeting the organizer had failed to show up to - something like 15-20 bikes down under a "get to know your riders a little too well" moment with the crowd.

Anyway, so now it's the end of the day, and the guys are getting their rewards for being fast. The guy who, I've heard, came in first, was apparently the one getting "the yellow jersey." Then the next guy comes up - and they put a SPOTTED jersey on him. We're talking white with red spots. He looked like BOZO the fricking CLOWN. ONLY THE FRENCH WOULD DO THIS TO HONOR SOMEONE. In America, we'd have put the spotted jersey on the dude who caused the wreck, and give him a special pointed helmet to wear.
