    I've been watching the streams as they happen in the morning. Lyzard mentioned that he tried to watch the prologue in a bar but they kept turning it off.... Would be into rewatching a stage if there's somewhere that'll play it.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    I've also been listening in the AM's while at work (headphones are kinda normal here so it doesn't bother anyone). Getting some folks together to hit up one of the bars with BIG tv's would be kinda fun.clockwork ted: this is my favorite thread. sweet BJ alexi!

    Jeanie Johnstons in JP has been known to play it in the past.

    The bartender who changed it from an NL baseball game on Saturday to TDF prologue said
    "oh come on, how boring is that"

    "about as boring as baseball & karaoke" is what I should have said.
    :-P

    I think Flat Top Johnny's in Kendal normally shows it. & Ride.Studio.Cafe, if you're able to get out there.

    Step 1: Gather en masse.

    Step 2: Using your numerical advantage, force bartender to change channel.

    Step 3: Drink much beer, tip well.

    EDIT for Step 4: Repeat daily.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Me too. I'll do some reconnaissance in Cambridge and report back. Always Ride Cafe if people wanted to ride up there specifically?? Make a day of it??

    Thursday and Friday, I'm down to go watch somewhere if folks are interested"here comes jon to the barry-ers!" "he stopped! he's grabbing a beer!" "he's still stopped, he's got another one!" "all he's doing is chugging beer!" "now he's not on the course anymore..."

    No spoilers, but the end of today's stage was worth watching... some pain, some joy (I watch it live streaming).

    man o man! i love me some tour dee france! but i never get around to watchin' it....
    seein as how i ain't got no teevee but if i did i'd watch the hell outta it.
    what is more? i don't give a shit about dopin' or whatever.
    the whole hissy is a colorful spectacle.
    i may show at redbones.

    when're the mountain stages?
    when the skinny li'l fuckers rule.
    i like the skinny li'l fuckers.
    fuck time trials.

    steep hill do(r)t calm in the TdF section has links to streams if you're partial to watching online in the morning... most coverage seems to start around 8am and end around 11-12.

    No real mountain stages until the 10th... don't watch the 9th or 19th (ITTs, no TTT this year?)

    I knew it was only a matter of time before this would happen....

    Has Miracle of Science been showing it live in the morning, or repeating it in the evening?I thought that might be you! But there was no shimmy-shake so I couldn't be sure.

    eurosport ad for the tour had various scenes from prior races, and the VO said 'who's hot [images of cuddles], and who's not [images of andy]"
    and one of the announcers just described andy as "big of tooth and small of ambition"

    harsh start

    Hey since it says "No spoilers" in the title, can we quickly define that? Like, no info for 24 hours or what?i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
  16.  
    Yeah... that would be helpful. Presumably by now people have had the opportunity to see an evening rebroadcast if they wanted to?

    that freakin' bus. i kept shouting at the screen, "JUST BACK IT OUT" until finally they listened to me. considering that and the crashes, yesterday's stage was painful to watch.

    for anyone looking for streams, cyclingfans.com has links to some
    i haven't tried it, but my friend linked me to torrents of the races too: http://www.cyclingtorrents.nl/

    i gather they had to let the air out of the tires before it was able to back out, so it wasn't just like he coulda thrown it in reverse that second and gotten out of the way

    For streams, I use a uk based VPN and bought a 1 month subscription to eurosportplayer. It was like 5 gbp but better quality and more reliable than the pirate streams.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    That's not bad, but for now I'm ok with seeking out the alternative sources.

    PS: I was watching this morning in a hotel room, and when the stream I was watching dropped out I turned on NBC-U or whatever it's called now, ack, it was awful!
