Beer: the Tour rider's energy drink

Friday's Foaming Rant: Beer me, Floyd

Jason O'Grady's Foaming Rant for this week is a little foamier than usual. He wants to know just what was in the beer that Floyd Landis said Wednesday would help him deal with his 10-minute loss on Stage 16.

Then, at a press conference on Thursday, after Landis chased down an 11-man breakaway, killed them and ate them, built a new bicycle out of their bones, and roared away in a pillar of fire to win the stage to Morzine and jump back to within 30 seconds of the yellow jersey, he mentioned beer once again.

Since we've got to know what wondrous potion could turn us all from Freds to Floyds, O'Grady is undertaking an experiment on our behalf, working his way from Anchor Steam to Zywiec Porter (what, no Abita Ale?) in the name of science.

Guinness, it's gotta be. I'll be disappointed if it turns out to be Kronenberg 1664.

Since Landis is a Mennonite, I'm guessing it's near-beer. And by 'near-beer', I mean 'Gatorade'.
