Seeing the Tour de France through a Fan's Eyes
Waiting for Lance with Sheryl Crow.
But, I had clearly solved the rider/spectator problem. I had witnessed more and understood more than OLN could ever hope to convey. I know more than Phil and Paul. I had caught the quintessential moment of the 2004 Tour de France and confirmed that the major threat to Lance was going to come from Ivan Basso. I had managed to see even more of the drama and agony by seeing through another fan?s eyes. It was going to be easy to say to friends back home, ?You just had to be there, it was beyond amazing. I can?t really explain it; you had to be there. Just look at the pictures. But they don?t tell the half of it.?
