Well, the Cub Reporter, known to all of you as BK and to me as Cubbie, is headed off to the Tour Day France on Friday. She'll meet up with her business partner, and our favorite commentator, Bob Roll, so you know she'll have some serious access to all of the behind the scenes things at Le Tour.
Cubbie promises to be in contact with both Tim and myself while she is away via email and text. Since she is the 'Cub Reporter', let's give her some assignments. What do you want to know about Le Tour that you think Bob, Al, Paul and Phil won't tell you on air? Remember, this is a family show....but things you might not see. I have a couple of examples:
- On the mountains stages the roads are painted all over the place. I love this aspect of le Tour! How do you stake out your piece of the tarmac? Do any disagreements ever happen? I mean, really...you are minding your own business painting "Allez Floyd" in green on the road and someone is writing "George Kicks Butt" around you and miscalculates the space needed and needs part of your space. Hey, I wouldn't give up my Floyd space....so what happens? How does it all fit? These are the things OLN isn't going to report on. Might seem mundane, but, hey, I want to know.
- We know that Bob and Al and then Phil and Paul are in separate spaces during le Tour so they can have different coverage, but are they next to each other? Where are they? Can they see each other? Make faces at each other off camera? Inquiring minds want to know.
I'm sure I will come up with a few more, but what do you want to know? Write your questions (within reason, remember, family show....) here and we'll see if Cubbie can answer a few while she's over there. Get them in the comment section by Thursday night so she can see them before she leaves on a jet plane.
Hmmm...didn't ask her about this before I wrote it, but if anyone can get answers, it's Cubbie!
Mountains today. Allez Floyd!!
Just a little tidbit for today. Thanks for stopping by.
