Agree with Donna
Spend the day with Lance Armstrong
i'd take the day with lance, if only to get him to autograph a bunch of stuff that i could later huck on ebay for considerably more than $200...
Call me Fred, call me Clyde
I just like to ride...
By almost every account of everyday folks meeting Lance on the road while riding, he's a great person to ride with.
As long as it's a bike ride and not having to go to Livestrong board meetings, I'll take the day with Lance.
.... and you are a moderator on a place called bikeforums.net, correct?Originally Posted by donnamb
humm, biking???????Originally Posted by donnamb
I myself want to believe I have some things in common with him, biking, running, dreaming of accomplishing a goal that other people are believing I cant do.
what an inspiration this men gives me, it would be an honor to meet him.
The big question in this thread really isn't about Lance.
It's about Portis. How much would he pay to spend a day with Paris Hilton?
I'm guessing he'd drop some serious coin* to get up close and personal to discuss finding religion, prison food, and getting hair extensions with America's most oppressed celebutant.
*serious coin = $2.36 for Portis, though I may be overestimating that a bit...
I have spent the day with Lance before. It's not as fun as one would imagine.

Not much of a motivation for me to spend a day with Lance Armstrong. It might be interesting but there are lots of interesting people in the world I can spend time with for free.
His version of biking and mine are so alien to each other, I don't even consider it the same thing at all. I did have cancer, but I sure wouldn't want to spend the day with someone talking about that. I'm sure he's a perfectly decent human being. I just don't care about following sports or anything like that.Originally Posted by blonduathlongrl

I would spend the day with Lance Armstrong. Not just cause he is a cool dude, but because one of the reasons he is such a good fund raiser is that he is amazing at networking. Getting in good with that guy would be worth WAY more than $200.

I am very impressed by Lance's accomplishments, but I'd really rather spend the time chilling out at a good concert than spending a day with a type A personality like he seems to have.

Pie. I'd take pie.
Meeting Lance would be interesting and probably make for a good story, but truth be known, there are a fair number of Foosters I'd rather spend a day with than Lance. And that is not meant as a slam on Lance.

I'd take the $200. Why would I want to hang out with a roadie for a day??
Actually, doesn't he mountain bike too?
I'd much rather meet Wade Simmons or Overend.
You wouldn't want to hang out with me for a day? Errrr I mean an umbiker for a day?Originally Posted by Taerom
Let's see...spend the day in awkward chit-chat with a distinctly unpleasant type A guy, or $200? Given that for $200 I can buy a pretty special bottle of wine and a decent baguette, then sit in the park and offer to share the bread and wine and conversation with the first gorgeous woman to ride by (or second...or third...depending on how busy life is for those wonderful people), I'm thinkin' "I'll take the cash, Monty."
lance, only because i am a bike racing fan
Ohhhh that's messed up. Good, but messed up.
