    Folks

    On the way to work this morning the sports caster mentioned bicycling racing. They ask who the most outstanding sports hero of 2002 was. You guessed it he said "Lance Armstrong after overcoming cancer, which almost killed him he went on to win thr TdF 4 times. The TdF is the most gruling sporting event that there is."

    I'll bet that is more coverage thn we've gotton in a long time. Oh is was an NPR station, but that's a start.

    Hey, any coverage is good for the sport.

    Armstrong was on Charlie Rose the other night. I watched a bit of it, they interviewed someone else after that. It was a decent interview. Compared to most athletes, LA is pretty articulate and at least the interviewer wasn't some CNN moron.

    Yes he was not a cnn moron, but that is an interview I would like to see, Lance Armstrong and the Broadcaster who doesn't think he is an athelte. I would pay money to see that.
    Ohhh wait I think the guy was from MSNBC shucks.
