Perhaps instead of "Philisms" they could be called "Liggetures" ... after you've said one you want to tie your mouth shut.
To acquire immunity to eloquence is of the utmost importance to the citizens of a democracy
Many people feel their lifestyle has a high price, but they're quite cool with that .. as long as somebody ELSE pays the price.
Pleasant rural scene - horses cantering across a paddock.
Liggett: "There's some nice horse meat down there"
Perhaps he missed breakfast.
The sky train is forming... Last year this team led out sprint king Mark Cavendish, the fastest bike rider in the world...
Eisel is now leading the peloton up the mountain. His Sky team mate is Bradley Wiggins, Tour De France winner and gold medalist at the Olympic games time trial....
.... Any opportunity to throw in two British names in a race they are not involved in!
n=8 (2011 road, 2004 road, 2010 track, 2009 foldup, 1990 hybrid, 1992 indoor trainer, 2007 road now a rental, 1970's step through)
You guys are so cynical its on prime time tv ...... IF they expand a bit to educate people who would normally not watch cycling then all power to them. Crickey this is Australia and there is cycling on tv every day from 9.30 to 11 or when ever it finishes. I get to choose tennis or cycling and I love the choice tennis SUCKS so do footy, cricket and all the other rubbish we are fed. Just enjoy it!!!

Liggett and Sherwin talking about how riders prepare for a season based upon what they want to acheive.
Liggett is explaining how riders preparing for the TdF tend to start slowly in the season.
Liggett:"Having said that however, Cadel's team-mate, TJ Van Garderen is currently racing in the Tour De San Luis and is coming second."
Sherwin: "I think you can put that down to youthful experience".
Really? Youthful experience?
Liggett's looking tired - retirement is beckoning I think.
But there others, every bit as competent and entertaining - Carlton Kirby, David Harmon, Brian Smith, Magnus Backstedt (when he stops riding for good). Even Sean Kelly makes a half-decent fist of it. The future of cycling commentary is assured.
Liggett said last year that he wanted to retire already, because he's feeling his age and has other things to do, but he can't because he is bound by contracts for a few more years.
In that case it's understandable that maybe his commentary is suffering from fatigue or a slight reduction in effort or enthusiasm.
It would be a shame if he lets the disenchantment show enough to compromise his reputation.
btw thanks Joeblake, "Liggetures" is brilliant!
