Bob and Phil have done, and will continue to do, a great job for the play by play.

RIP Paul.

Let's see how this works out with VdV and Horner in the studio, along with Burmeister. Chris is a great straight man and foil and reflective commenter against the Bobke backdrop. Burmeister is reliable wallpaper and emcee. Who's going to step up and fill Bobke's shoes? My preliminary sense is Horner is a bit out there (even by Bob standards) and VdV is a bit straight.

Free safety Jens?

Horner!

New color guy.

I see a bit of tension between Christian and Chris.

IMO - Christian will be the new Phil, Chris the new Robert.

This. I noticed it several times this morning. In a way that's ok. Can't always agree on everything.

I don't know if about cycling, or media job. Color goes to Honer. Commentary, to Christian. It is hard to own all the jerseys.

Phil, Phil, Phil

His time has come and gone, after hearing him murder Tervuren yesterday it's clear you can't count on his pronunciation of anything anymore.

I once heard him pronounce Claudio Chiapucci's name as "Claudio Chia- (insert vulgar name for woman's body part)".

I laughed for days over that.

Well the other day Phil called one of the riders Hinault. My ears did a double take.
