The whole family was invited to Jen’s house to celebrate her 40th birthday on Saturday and you know it’s hard for me to pass up free food and beer. All in all it was a grand time and from what I’ve heard since then, we should not have left when we did. Evidently, it had something to do with Jen’s sister and no pants. Rumor on the grapevine confirms that its just is not a “Party” until this happens. Congrats Jen!

I love watching the Tour but it’s not because I like to hear commentator Phil Liggett absolutely butcher the riders names. None of the riders get the treatment from Phil as Alejandro Valverde does. You see, Phil is English, meaning he has no clue to how to pronounce anything other than in English. Phil has this penchant for slurring Valverde’s first name. Instead of, Ali-han-droe, he finds an imaginary “th” somewhere so it becomes Ali-thane-droe. Note to Phil, the letter ‘J’ in Spanish sounds like an ‘h’. When he tries to get it right, he still screws it up. By the end of the daily broadcast, Valverde’s first name morph’s into Alessandro. Don’t get me started with Bob Roll, he’s a nut.
