Too Legit to Quit

Flipping through the iPhoto library, I came across this shot from the Amgen Tour of California this past february. If you are familiar with cycling on American television (the Versus channel,) then you are familiar with the famous commentator Phil Liggett. He is the guy with the British accent and all those “Liggittisms,” including but not limited to:

– He’s wearing the mask of pain!
– He’s really having to dig deeply into the suitcase of courage!
– The big man is in a ‘spot of bother’ on this climb.
– He’s dancing on his pedals in a most immodest way!
So imagine my surprise when I see a big sign being held up behind the Versus stage. The context is funny. The spelling error is hilarious.
Still waiting on my sign. Next year.
