We play callin’ and hard ballin’ and load haulin’, Torn Slatterns and Nugget Ranchers

The Tour De France begins tomorrow. And to think I thought I didn't care about Wimbledon.

A U. of Arizona study reveals that women speak 16,215 words a day versus 15,669 for men, a mere 500 more words for women. The problem for men is those 500 more words include: “We have to talk”; “Take out the garbage” and “If you think you’re watching sports all day you’ve got another thing coming.”

The subject who spoke the most was a man who spoke over 45,000 words in one day. To be fair, he was explaining a phone number his wife found in his pants on a bar coaster.

The Tour De France begins tomorrow. What used to be of vital international importance has, through scandals and mismanagement, dwindled down to an unimportant punch line to a bad joke. And besides France, the Tour has fallen on hard times as well.

NBA finals MVP, Tony Parker is marrying “Desperate Housewives” co-star Eva Longoria in France tomorrow. It will be a traditional French wedding including a French cake, French wine, and after the ceremony, the couple surrenders to the German army.

The Tour De France begins tomorrow. Without a contender, this year Americans are going to treat the Tour De France just like France treated World War II. We’ll sit this one out and you tell us who wins.
