    Lance is apparently a major tool off of the camera...

    There's some harsh stuff going on about the break-up. Some guys from Austin writes about Lance's true colors off camera: Read on for what it's worth

    It's amazing how much satisfaction some people are getting from their break up.

    "This couple had no chemistry and zero interesting qualities. Sheryl should get back to her original hair color, gain 10 lbs of soft womanly curves, and remember she's a MUSICIAN, not and ATHLETE. Lance should just jack off into the mirror, use his yellow rubber bracelet as a penis ring, smear his spooge all himslef and fall asleep sucking his thumb with visions of stupid bike races in his head. Self-absorbed competetive athleticism meeting creative musical talent was bound for failure from the get-go. Sheryl Crow if far from a musical favorite of mine. But you people who claim that she's a no-talent hack need to get bent. Her radio songs suck, but the woman has an impressive body of work and who cares if she blew anyone to get herself there. I once blew a music venue owner and got myself a gig in his venue. Guess what? He was an okay guy, I blew him because I wanted to, not because I wanted something out of it. Bonus if I did. Bonus to Shreryl for rising above the depths of school-teacher middle class hell in BFE to make something of herself. But GD, I cannot stand that Lance Armstrong. What a ******."

    man, harsh !

    I doubt if there are many celebrities who aren't major tools off camera. I think most of them are screwed up in the head.

    Word of the Day for Wednesday May 10, 2000

    schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\, noun:
    A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others.

    That the report of Sebastian Imhof's grave illness might also have been tinged with Schadenfreude appears not to have crossed Lucas's mind.
    -- Steven Ozment, Flesh and Spirit

    He died three years after me -- cancer too -- and at that time I was still naive enough to imagine that what the afterlife chiefly provided were unrivalled opportunities for unbeatable gloating, unbelievable schadenfreude.
    -- Will Self, How The Dead Live

    Somewhere out there, Pi supposed, some UC Berkeley grad students must be shivering with a little Schadenfreude of their own about what had happened to her.
    -- Sylvia Brownrigg, The Metaphysical Touch

    The historian Peter Gay -- who felt Schadenfreude as a Jewish child in Nazi-era Berlin, watching the Germans lose coveted gold medals in the 1936 Olympics -- has said that it "can be one of the great joys of life."
    -- Edward Rothstein, "Missing the Fun of a Minor Sin," New York Times, February 5, 2000

    "Bicycling is a healthy and manly pursuit with much to recommend it, and, unlike other foolish crazes, it has not died out." - The Daily Telegraph (1877)

    It is pathetic how people care so much about the personal lives of celebrities, but LA has it coming, he always used his personal life to boost his celebrity status.
    So this places LA firmly in the supermarket tabloids for a while, where he apparently wants to be. Sad way to endup, not much dignity. I guess you can take a boy out of the trailerpark..

    He used/is using his status to talk about things that matter to him. Cancer research for one. If you chose to listen then you're making him a celebrity. He probably doesn't want the publicity of the breakup yet there will be endless threads being created on the forums discussing it ad nauseum, raising the event to a celebrity breakup.

    Here's #10:

    Posted by tori on February 3, 2006 10:39 PM

    i'm from austin (where lance is from) and i know several people that have said he's a ****ing *******. then again, i hate sheryl crow, so i'm sad they broke up. they both suck and should be together. oh well. the only thing better than them being miserable together is them being miserable and alone mwahahha

    Well, I guess since someone heard someone else say that Lance is an *******, it really must be true.

    oh come on... he went on SNL with Crowe, riding her celebrity. Didn't mention a word about cancer.

    You can't believe everything you see on the internet. For example, sometimes a bid on Ebay is not really a bid. Sometimes a guy isn't really in Wisconsin when he says he is. And more than likely people posting on an obscure blog have never met LA.

    I agree with some in this thead. Lance is great on his bike, but socially he seems more and more like trailer trash.

    The resentment, pettiness, and generally nasty feelings trotted out on this thread are more embarrassing than any excesses by Lance or Sheryl...after all, we're "real" people and should know better. Cycling is a life affirming action; burping up all this ill feeling against two people whom we really only know through flickering media images or tattle-tale gossip seens beneath dignity.

    What?

    I don't really give a hoot one way or the other, but I'm sure anyone with a type A personality will be an ass from time to time.

    LOL....All you "hollier than thou" types just get over yourselves. Geez.

    Well said.

    A classic case of crowd mentality, a bunch of losers feeding off each other's venom, most of whom are too feeble to have a mind of their own.

    How pathetic! Even if I was in agreement with some prevailing opinion, I wouldn't be such a wuss as to throw another log onto a fire of hatefulness.

    What losers!

    flipping through some of his books at the bookstore does give me the impression that he is a stuck-up jerk. I think there was one time where he wrote "I let him pass me thinking he was all strong... I dropped him later down the mountain" - that sounds like something a sixteen year old would write on this forum. He's a pro, he should act like it

    The real tabloid test to see if a story is all that good is to remove the fame names and see if it is still interesting.

    Here we go: A couple that was engaged broke up.

    Who cares?
    just a sig test !

    don't care about their personal life. I know Lance is a cyclist and Crow is a singer. what else do I have to know?
