Anybody got a rhyme for Floyd?

Have you heard the one about the Tour de France cyclist who's riding on one hip? Floyd Landis, he who will need a hip replacement come the end of this tour, chewed up the field and spit them out yesterday, in what may possibly be the greatest single ride EVER in TdF history.

For Landis to make up nearly 8 minutes on the leaders without the benefit of a crash is unthinkable, especially considering his performance the previous day, where he dropped over 10 minutes to fall from first to eleventh.

I'm rooting for the greatest time trial in the history of time trials tomorrow.

That was an amazing story. I'm surprised none of the French contingent asked for an immediate drug test. That's a joke....kind of.

Anyways, good luck to Floyd tomorrow and finish what you started yesterday.

Rhyme huh? Here's my best two minute effort:

The was a rider named Floyd
And all the competition he destroyed
He had the lead
And never lost speed
Now all the rest are unemployed

Steroid, apparently.
