I wasn't the only one who thought something strange about the figure appearing across the street from Pirtles house at the Giro yesterday. I told the missus to snap shut the cooler but it was too late. I did have a couple extra "items" from Saturdays sweat fest, so I was eager to share, honored that I could indulge Shoemaker with a cold beverage. Based on the Irishman's tan lines, I would have said he was racing this weekend. But no. Is Furby fo real?
