call from Koechli.
I probably said the same comment too! Happy to trade when they are done 🙂
it’s amazing to think just how “wrong” the commentary of liggett was!
(@19.30). i’m still searching for the post race interview with lemond, when
he was remonstrating about having to wait for hinault – turning mid way
through to deliver the line “do you want a smack in the mouth” to an
