The fall came with about 6 miles left in the 99-mile stage. Armstrong smacked onto the road, scraped his left elbow and dirtied his yellow jersey and banged up his hip. He then climbed back on his bike and got back in the race.
But, a few seconds after getting back on his bike, Armstrong nearly fell again when his right foot slipped out of his pedal. He went on to win the stage and now has a 67 second lead over Jan Ullrich.

It's not Christmas, but it sure looked a lot like it, as scores of Santas gathered for their annual meeting.

Over 100 Santas from around the globe are together for the 40th World Father Christmas Congress in Denmark. The Santas will discuss weighty issues like the sizes of presents, and reindeer fodder. The congress takes place in the summer because the Santas are simply too busy later in the year.

That was the case tonight where two marines married high atop the Roanoke Valley.
With the star looking down and stars about to come out- the two said I Do.
We leave you with a look at tonight's ceremony.
Goodnight.
