LOL - I'm enjoying the WEDU stuff from Lance.

As I just mentioned in the live chat:

To my great surprise, NBC just featured Armstrong on-screen, with Liggett and Roll, to get his take on the race. It was a surprisingly long segment, but then the tell was revealed: They're rebroadcasting the Armstrong/Tirico interview from a few weeks ago, immediately after today's Tour coverage—and, I suspect, they'll do it again several times throughout the Tour.

Maybe one of those geniuses over at NBC woke up one day and thought, Hmmm, maybe we'll get more views on that Lance interview if we promote it and re-show it during the Tour de France, as opposed to the original time slot of a very late Wednesday night following an extra-period Stanley Cup game?

It was quite strange to see him on TV during the live coverage though. Liggett and Roll should've both been shown the door as soon as Lance was ex-communicated. But if they get to stay, then why not him?

They can't have it both ways.
