Seriously? You wonder why people who don't like to go to bike races responded to a post asking why people don't like to go to bike races?

At my house the world stops for TdF, and Amgen too. My wife even watches and loves the color and spectacle on TV the races provide. We have attended one stage in France, and I always find a way to attend Amgen somehow. We have been to at least 10 of the cities featured on this year's TdF, which makes it more interesting to watch. Anyway, lots of negative energy here to racing and spectating in general. It seems that these days technology has created a bunch of couch potatoes with short attention spans. Sad. With exorbitant player salaries, and astronomical ticket prices of other pro sports, bike racing is still free to attend, and one of the best deals around to see color, action and superb athletes doing what they do best, over roads that we ride every day. Just sayin'...
Let me get this straight....

You are claiming that people are "couch potatoes" for NOT stopping everything else they are doing to watch TV for 3 weeks in July?

You are claiming people are couch potatoes for NOT spending their time watching OTHER people do sports?

Sure, OK
