Sheryl Crow, Tour groupie

IHT.com | For Crow, the other side of celebrity: Life as a Tour 'groupie'

I generally can either leave or leave Sheryl Crow stories, but I couldn't resist this one, where she talks about what she's learned about the sport, and how she likes it now:

"I'm not sure I've ever met such great young men, with their interesting stories, each and every one of them," she said. "Great people. And there's great healthy competition. To me, it's just a beautiful sport. It's the greatest sport.

"I think the dedication that these guys show on a daily basis, the way they exercise mind over body, drive themselves past the point of pain and experience that kind of anguish - to be part of a successful team is for me a beautiful ballet."

Sing it, sister.

I have become more vain and felt great vapidness to the remarks of the famous who think their opinion has relavence.

I had to change the OLN channel the other night while the boys of OLN continued their oogling over Crow's insights and comments about the T de F.

She is a singer and song writer. She is a famous person who happens to be involved with the greatest endurance cycler of our time. That is all and nothing more.

When Crow goes on the road, maybe Lance can give his point of view on why certain lyrics were written into her songs, or how she played certain guitar riffs with the band during a mega concert she performed. Will I care how Lance critiques about her performance(s)? NO!

She is nice eye candy. She is a good singer and song writer. She speaks with great candor and intelligence. She seems to be a decent and supportive human being. Thank the Lord, she is not of the Jessica Simpson singer non-personality type.

Enough of Crow.

Now on with the RACE!

Ice Cold...it's like one of those things where they go up to a random celebrity and ask them a question about some major political happenings. LIKE THEY KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!

To her credit, Ms. Crow has her wits about her and can talk about something from her perspective. And it is her perspective as someone who watches the sport and holds in high esteem the riders.

But, yah. OLN, to stick to Bob Roll and leave Ms. Crow to crank out the tunes. Good race, tomorrow, folks! I'm excited.
