You Cannot Be Serious!

One of my favorite sports personalities, John McEnroe, was sporting a maillot jaune while hosting his TV show this evening. Unfortunately, even thought they’re both in the Nike stable, I don’t think McEnroe has enough star power to book Armstrong for his program. I’m sure they’d have a lively conversation, although most of what I’d be interested in probably wouldn’t see the light of day.
