Okay, to be honest, Andy didn't get a sheep from anyone, at least as far as I know but can someone tell my why he did have to take a photo with one of the little creatures while waiting for the start of the 11th stage?!
I mean the little lamb didn't seem too pleased while Andy's gorgeous smile looks a bit like he is asking himself what the heck the people who brought the sheep there are thinking. And I'm asking myself pretty much the same. I know that French people sometimes are a little crazy, they always want to take their roosters to soccer matches of their National Team. Well... At least I knew the reason for that one but I didn't know that sheeps seem to stand for cyclists. I know there are some black sheeps... Thank goodness it was a white sheep - otherwise the German media probably would have made a big fuss out of it - they still aren't over Zabel and Ullrich... But thankfully they're getting better :)
Btw, maybe Andy didn't get a sheep but instead he got a little gift from Lance Armstrong. With the words "It fits your jersey perfectly" he gave puppy Schleck one of his yellow LIVESTRONG wristbands. Andy was very happy and actually emphasized during the interview that he didn't have to pay for it.
Dear Andy, that is the meaning of a gift...
