Le Tour De Potter

After 4 volumes and 15 stages the outcome is still uncertain. Will I be able to complete this reading of the Harry Potter series by the end of Le Tour?

Today I completed The Goblet of Fire and picked up a copy of The Half-Blood Prince at Costco ($16) and watched 4 1/2 hours of Tour de France with Hincapie's deserved win and Armstong's solidification of his position in yellow. There are only a few with any chance left to challenge Armstrong and I believe they must do it on Tuesday, Stage 16, and do it significantly given Armstrong's time trial strength.

Tomorrow, a rest day for the cyclists, I'll get a good start on the Order of the Phoenix and should be on to the The Half-Blood Prince by Friday.

Hey, with six books to read, 2-5 hours of cycing to watch 6 days a week, work, family and chores around the house where is the time for blogging? Well, it turns out there is little...

In closing:

It is my belief, however, that the truth is generally preferable to lies,...

Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, 722

Armstrong rocks! I've been watching the Tour also. I was so happy to see Hincapie win the 15th stage. The fans drive me crazy though. I'm so afraid some half-naked moron with a flag is going to shove Lance off his bike.

Where do you watch the Tour? I've tried to find it on all the sports stations, with no luck. Perhaps I'm watching at the wrong time(s) of day? Advice?

We've been watching on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN) (US). We tape the live broadcast (typically starting at 8:30 EDT) and watch it at our leisure in the evening on weekdays or intermittently throughout the day on weekends.
They rebroadcast 3-4 more times each day.
