    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    You can see some google photos for examples. Grays are an interesting bird. They hang out at all the high peaks in the Northeast and nip food from hikers. They stash food in holes of trees for the winter season. One of my favorite things to watch is someone who has never seen the Gray Jays fed from hand. My daughter calls it her "Disney Princess" moment.

    Has anyone ever fed wild birds? We have Gray Jays in the mountains where I live. We bring bird feed and feed them by hand on the mountain peaks. I have some awesome photos of them landing on my hands.

    Stephen King's IT

    I think The Long Walk could be done well if they took a more futuristic view of it and created more of a backstory to The Major and some of the boys. Mixing genders and adding some females to the walkers would be a good idea as well. I'd also love to see Eyes of the Dragon made into a film. With the success of LoTR, Hobbit, and GoT I could see a market for the film. Maybe there is not enough there and i am being sentimental but I loved that story. It was my first King book.

    I love the added drama of Landa knowing he is probably the strongest rider right now. Must be so tempting to want to add just a little more time into the GC race.

    I'm hoping some of the flatter courses get interesting due to cross winds or breakaways. Stage 11 last year was awesome, love to see another replay of something like that.

    Nice to see Rolland get a breakaway stage win. Good timing, good strategy and nice strong push from him. No one could get their act together and he just slipped away. I'm a day behind so looking forward to watching Stage 18 tonight when I get home. Finally have race season coming up on the NBC Gold package - Dauphine, Tour De Suisse and then TDF!

    Tour of California has been pretty entertaining this week. If you have a chance, it is worth viewing. Yesterdays stage was pretty exciting at the end.

    Not having an American GC contender is not allowed. Until someone else comes along TVG is the great American hope!

    Agreed, I've been following cycling for the last few years and I can't recall him ever being someone who took risks or attacked on climbs. Even in the years when he was among the Top 10 in GC in the TDF he was not much of a factor. It might be good for his career to step away from the pressure of GC contender. Free him up to go after some stage wins on a Grand Tour. It could revitalize his career a little. He must be feeling a loss of confidence.

    Thankfully it gets interesting this year. I watched the first two stages of the Tour of California last night. Tom Skunjins had an absolutely horrific crash on an ascent of stage 2. It was almost compounded by his staggering attempt to get back on the bike as riders were ascending past him. One of the worst crashes I have seen. Guy did manage to get on the bike for a little while but Cannondale pulled him off the course.

    He will definitely lose some time tomorrow but it is pretty clear that he will win on the mountains. Weird things happen after rest days. It would be great to see Q falter on the time trails and let Dumoulin and Pinot overtake him.

    That was crazy. At that point the race had started so I am not sure what they could have done to change it. I thought the Giro was lucky the official standing in the road a couple of stages ago did not get himself or other riders killed. They dodged a disaster that time but no such luck on this stage. Good battle up the mountain with the remaining contenders. Got excited for Pinot when he did his initial attack and initially I thought Nibali might be stronger because he was staying in saddle. Quintana is just too good on the hills right now.

    Found replays online of the last 20km's for all the stages so I am now up to date on the Giro Felt bad for Conti on the hairpin turn at the end of stage 8. Tough way to end the day!!!

    Watched the replay of Stage 3 on youtube. I love when cross winds factor in on flat sections and the peloton gets broken. Not as good as last years Sagan/Froome break but Jungels pushed it nicely. Kind of pissed off at the cycling access situation here in the US. Apparently the only way to see the Giro is to obtain a Fubo.Tv subscription over Roku. NBC had the streaming rights for all the other events except the Giro. Fubo is $34 USD per month! I'm stuck trolling YouTube for replays and most of the posts are highlights or shitty quality. I will be watching the Tour of California live next week.
