Tour de wake me up in 5 days...

Every morning I swear I'm not going to waste time watching what has got to be the most stultifyingly boring Tour de France of my life.  I feel like the intention was good: to make a close race that would end in a last day show down in the Alps, but the reality is a non-race.  All the favorites have no way of distancing themselves from each other and no reason to attack, either.  But like a crackhead, I keep turning that video on and watching, hoping to get a small hit of that sweet feeling that comes from watching a truly riveting bike race.  Today's hit of ecstasy came when it looked like Tyler Farrar was going to best the Manx Missile, but it wasn't meant to be.  Another 30-40 meters and maybe, but Cav' is just crazy fast when he sees that line sway into view.  All I know is that the end of this Tour better have enough fireworks to make up for all of the non-action we have seen so far...
