Wednesday Roundup

Quote of the Day

About the DPF damage, HAL has this to say:

"Well, I don't think there is any question about it. It can only be attributable to human error. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error."

News
Brad Rock of The Deseret Morning News writes about the baseball hall of fame, lies , cheating, and briefly mentions FL in with a bunch of other people with the usual reference....

Forums
DPF seems to have had some kind of glitch, losing some posts by duckstrap, jimmy and strbuk among others. Well, actually, they lost two whole days, which strikes me as really bad, even for a free site maintained by volunteers.

Blogs
Phantom Reflections is excited about the 2007 Tour of California, and mentions a hope that FL will be able to at least make an appearance...

Cycling is Life
buys into innocence, making the case that politics escalated things when the A sample result was announced, and dubious about the blindness of the B sample test. TBV also gets a nice plug.

Hmmm. This DPF thing can't be a mere coincidence. It's clearly the work of our rogue cyclist hacker fiend, whoever that is.

Could it be Floyd, regretting his comments about Greg Lemond that TBV quoted yesterday?

Could it be TBV, known to be sick of the inane arguing between myself and RH?

Could it be RH, frustrated that he was apparently losing his argument to me?

Could it be Lance, just because whenever anything happens anywhere, someone tries to pin it on Lance?

Could it be me, even though I have no motive, I have the skillz...

Could it be L'equipe, or LeMonde, digging for dirt in the PMs of Floyd and others?

Could it be some mysterious unknown entity, with unknown motives?

Tune in next time, same TBV-time, same TBV-channel.

Personally, I think it was Dick Pound and his roving band of Nazi Frogmen.

Rant & Thomas A. "Mighty"Fine, you make me snicker, you make me laugh, you make me guffaw. POW. ZAP. (That's all I can remember from the old Batman show - I was but a tot at the time...)

If this is a poll, I'm voting for DICK & the Nazi frogmen.

As for Floyd's comments about Greg Lemond - currently now only to be seen here at TBV, as I commented on DP - wow, if there is ever a War of Vituperation, I want to be on Floyd's team! When he gets "roostered up", he can sure let it fly!

Holy Guacamole, Batman. Did you want to add the LNDD to the list of candidates for the Lone Hacker? Or is that the same as L'Equipe/WADA?

We find out at DPF that their switch to a new server lost 2 days of postings. What a bummer. I'm sure glad TBV quoted Floyd's reply regarding Greg LeMond. I think it would be really helpful to people who are trying to figure out the strange LeMond comments to get a bit of context for Floyd's reply at DPF. I happened to be reading DPF last night when many pages of postings suddenly disappeared. Does anyone remember Floyd's comments well enough to reconstruct the context of the DPF postings? As I recall, Floyd clarified that he DID call LeMond, but not to ask for advice, rather to request that LeMond stop talking about Floyd. Floyd stated that LeMond doesn't know him personally. There was a discussion on DPF about what LeMond's motive was in his statements. So the bottom line is, according to Floyd, that there was a conversation, but not at all the kind of conversation as characterized by LeMond.
