    I haven't been watching the Tour at all, but just posted the press release about Dave Mayer and his "Bottle Boy" costume on my blog. Has anyone seen footage that includes him? Sounds hilarious and brilliant at the same time.

    Love the Clean Bottle guy. I've seen him on almost all the climbs, waddling around trying to keep up with the cyclists. He's a riot, I'd buy the bottle just for the heck of it. Great ideas are always the simple ones.

    How much you think Phil Liggett got paid for mentioning him every freaking day?

    "Bottle Boy represents Clean Bottle, a new reusable sports bottle that unscrews at both ends. The rather simplistic design concept makes the job of cleaning residue out of the bottom of the bottle easy and helps prevent mold, a concern among runners, cyclists, hikers, and other athletes. The product is available through REI and others."

    They could have summed that up better and just said everyone.
