Wanna know what kind of power a widescreen high-definition television can yield over a typical male? I’m sure you already know (especially if you’re a woman) but I’ll give you a great example anyway.
My father-in-law is a typical child of the south. Born and raised in Southeastern North Carolina, he’s a card-carrying member of the NASCAR set. If V8 engines and gigantic ovals arent involved, then he’s probably not gonna watch it.
But lo and behold, he comes up to me out of the blue today and asks: “You been keeping up with the Tour de France?”
Tour de France? Where the hell did that come from???
He said he’s been watching Lance Armstrong race up and down mountainsides on television and was impressed with his stamina. He then asked me if he had a shot against the other riders this year, since he just came out of retirement.
I was still trying to register how my father-in-law even knew what the Tour de France was. Then I put two and two together and remembered he just got a new widescreen 120 MGHz 1080p HDTV, which makes ALL sports look good on television. Lol.
My brain finally caught up with his question, which allowed me to answer: “Yes, I think Lance can win the tour again this year.”
Because if a certified-country boy can get caught up in the world’s greatest bicycle race, then surely a 37-year cancer survivor can win it…
