    BR is einstein of bicycling, it comes out. If he can create a semi-competent rider out of TH (the
    7 TdF-no stage wins whatsoever 30 year old TH), he can do serious damage with some of the talent
    we got here.

    Instead of these schmucks we keep seeing on OLN, who are responsible for US cycling (Ochowicz etc.),
    we need BR here. The guy is respected by riders because he won the god damn TdF and whatever else
    that needed to be won.

    Ca$h him up until he breaks down and agrees to come here, give him a group of youngsters to work
    with and we own the tour for the next 20 years.

    come to papa Bjarne

    (unless something goes horribly wrong during the operation and the progeny ends up having
    US-intelligence and Bjarne-$$. that would be uglier than Yeti+Elephant_man+hunchback_of_ND combined
    or maybe even uglier than Janet Reno, although that is a long shot)

    Amstel Gold. A few others but he was a domestique for most of his career.

    I said the same thing about 2 weeks ago but nobody seemed to agree.

    Inviting Bjarne Riis to be your national cycling coach would be a bit like inviting Gennady
    Touretski to be your national swim coach.

    Or some old Polish guy to be your cycling coach so he can help some 16 year-old kid from Nevada win
    the Tour someday.

    Or some other foreigner to come over and coach your men's soccer team to their best WC finish
    in history.

    --- Tyler had no stage wins because Bruyneel rarely allows his riders to attempt individual stage
    wins, it sucks and Cedric Vasser left because of it. C Agricole and CSC allow riders more freedom.
    The Posties are a lot stronger than they appear on paper, it is just that the postie domestiques are
    too restrained and discouraged from placing high after their jobs are done for the days stage.-----
    My proof Look at Tylers position now, Levi would also be in the top ten without his accident but if
    these guys were riding for postal they would be forced to be 20 minutes down at least.

    Riis is probably respected by riders even more, because he as a rider can from nothing. He was a
    domistique for several years on low salery, often struggling to get a contract, but laboured on
    through the years to become a dominiting rider, but also one who has been enourmously gracious with
    his wisdom, sharing it not just to his CSC riders, but to people like Jaksche and Ullrich too

    The movie star reference must be for Reagan, and I think that was before Bennett. Anyone else
    remember Jake Garn? I think he was the first senator launched into space (Glenn wasn't a senator
    when he went the first time). But I don't recall either Hatch or Garn trying to change the
    constitution, but it wouldn't surprise me if either one tried.

    There was a t-shirt commemorating this in SLC that had a shuttle nose slightly pointed up in the
    grip of a supine hand with the words "Jake off in Space" under it. A classic!

    Orin is lobbying as we speak...

    Then you haven't tried Park City Brewery, Moab Brewery, Squatters, Uintah, Wasatch, Roosters
    (Ogden), Pinnacle (price), McStiffs (Mowabb). Ootah is my primary state for beer, after IN (we have
    a great one just 3 blocks from my house, a real obstacle!

    Orin and Arnold make sort of an odd couple. And ya, such an obvious steroid abuser would be a very
    bad example.

    Look at this, Kids! Inject yourself with enough steroids to kill and elephant and maybe someday you
    can be President too!

    That aside, I don't see anything wrong with changing the that part of the Constitution. If the
    people wish to vote for someone born in another country, then so be it.

    It would give me a chance: CL not born in the US but not interested in the job... (it would ruin my

    Denmark, a complete wast of his time
    :)

    Well, you cant' have him but it is ok for big US corp. to spend money on a danish cycling teams.

    Why would it ruin your road riding? If you're the President, you can do

    vacations".
