Hero worship

I'm visiting Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) in Sunnyvale today. You know those motivational posters you see in the hallways of corporate America? AMD has those also, except they're all custom for AMD, and every other poster features a larger than life image of Lance Armstrong with various motivational phrases and placards that say "Thank you Lance for inspiring us! AMD is a proud sponsor of the 2005 Discovery Team that won the 2005 Tour de France."

Speaking of heroes, today's Tour of California featured climbs and descents on 15% grades. Jens Voight took the stage today, while Levi Leipheimer still holds the overall lead.
