That is Cadel Evans’ winning time from last year’s Tour de France. There may be something wrong with me if I can be transfixed by watching either a marathon on TV or the almost month-long bike race that winds through France and neighboring countries. The scenery is spectacular, whether it is shots in the Alps or Pyrenees, or the villages in the French countryside older than our nation. The coverage by NBCSP (formerly Versus) and NBC on the weekends is top-rate with knowledgeable and entertaining commentators. It makes one wonder why we cannot expect the same from – to cite one example – college football broadcasts here. If you cannot watch the broadcasts that begin at 8:00 am (or earlier), NBCS televises an abridged version (a mere three hours) each evening at 8:00 pm.
