Forget the Tour de France!

Many of you know about the epic battle taking place in our Fantasy Tour de France league - however the most epic sporting event taking place this week was the US AIR GUITAR CHAMPIONSHIPS!

Just like "Le Tour" the US was upset last year when an American lost to a French Air Guitarist in the World Championships! (Thanks Obama....). Well now the US is raising their game in an attempt to claim what is rightfully ours! If any country deserves to be the best at NOT having musical talent - it is the US. Here's the summary from the US Air Guitar Blog!

Last night at a sold out show in New York City's Irving Plaza (I saw Beyoncé play here once), the Unites States' most elite professional air guitarists competed for the national belt and the opportunity to represent the stars and stripes in the Air Guitar World Championships in Oulu, Finland.

It was a tight, tight competition, with first round ties for fourth and fifth sending 8 performers into the second round.  WILLIAM OCEAN (Andrew Litz, NYC), the 2009 champ, was among them.  But the smooth moves of ROMEO DANCECHEETAH (Matt Cornelison, Milwaukee) and DREAMCATCHER (Ryan Layman, Denver) topped the rest and after some serious deliberation celebrity judge JASON JONES (Daily Show) sent the two competitors into a third round air-off.

Like most immortal shit, in the end there can be only one.  And that one is ROMEO DANCECHEETAH.  Check out our youtube channel for more moving pictures from last night's binge and today's bangover.

Alex Lipsitz, director of the megabrilliant Air Guitar Nation, for some unknown reason agreed to send her crew to film the evening's performances and youtube it before the venue staff had time to kick me out for firing confetti guns all over the place.
Here's the new US Champion at his best: Romeo Dance Cheetah!
