It is a bit of overload this weekend though.
- Euro 2004 final (Sunday evening)
- Wimbledon finals (Saturday & Sunday afternoon (barring rain))
- Tour de France (Saturday prologue, Sunday first leg)
- Formula 1 GP of France



That's about it.

To be honest though, I haven't paid much attention to it yet. I guess Wimbledon and Euro 2004 got most of my interest. Then again, it will go on for three weeks, so plenty of time left.

C ya!

Marty

"This is my body. And I can do whatever I want to it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on?"


Lance for 6!

We don't have Neighbours in France, I wish we had, it seems great. What we have again and again is ER and Dawson's Creek ! ! !
But maybe that's for another thread !

I've always had a lot of sympathy for Jan Ullrich
so I hope he'll at least give Armstrong a real fight this year

ER!

If it means that to get rid of all those soap series (Neighbours, As The World Turns, Bold & Beautiful, etc.) there constantly has to be sport on TV, then I think that is a small sacrifice.

I like ER much but I've seen the episodes so many times...
There's a new series coming next week : FBI.
Does someone know it ? Is that worth watching it ?

Back to the Tour ! Sorry for that interlude !
