No, Team Radio Shack--*you* get ready for this.

On Sunday 3B, as he is wont to do, declared, "I am Lance Armstrong."

Recently, he's had a greater propensity to channel Levi Leipheimer, or as he says Levi Leiptheimer, but today he opted for Mellow Johnny.

That got me to thinking about how Lance is so fashion forward, and how he doesn't have a uniform designed yet for his new team.

So long as Lance's designers can figure a way to keep the bell bottoms out of the bike chains, I think we may have saved them a load of work by allowing them to steal the look 3B came up with for Team Radio Shack.

You can thank me later, Lance, after the Bradsteins are done toasting your victory on the Champs Elysee.

  1. I am not sure they could equal the fashion magic of that jumpsuit, but I am sure they will try. Make sure the final piece has the light up thingy over the hand pocket too.

  2. Funny you mention that. 3B just complained that it doesn't work anymore. I told him that I'd collaborate with Grammy to replace the battery.

  3. It must be time to send him another one.

  4. I'm all for the black socks (I wear 'em myself, with good slogans on them about petrochemical ignition), but my favorite peloton footwear is still Chris Horner's bright yellow Mavics. Haven't missed him yet in a pace line, and he's been in a few.

    The problem with 3B's kit there is that until they rule out race radio completely, it's probably loud enough that you wouldn't hear the d.s.'s instructions in your earpiece, so you could be at a competitive disadvantage.

    But you can rest easy, knowing you'll never miss the call for morning bananas again.

  5. CAGirl: Or bring it back here yourself.

    MrJ: What? What's that? I can't hear you!
