A chance with Lance would be memorable and a great memory, 200 bucks well money is money in my mind no centimental value.

Lance is a cool guy. I think he'd appreciate it, if I took the 200 bucks, and donated 100.00 of it to a cancer charity like the Lance Armstrong Foundation. And used the other 100.00 to buy some cycling gear :D

There's a lot of people I'd pick spending a day with over $200. Meeting someone like that may actually change me in some way. (Maybe I'd ride my bike more regularly. Who knows?) And at the minimum, it should be memorable. $200, well, it's an amount of money that's not really life changing.

I'd take the money. I'm sure he's a great guy and all, but I'd say the same thing for any of my favorite athletes/actors/etc. I can appreciate their work, but I have little interest in meeting them.

That pretty well somes it up for me. He is at least an accomplished athelete so I have a lot of respect for him as opposed to somebody like Paris Hilton who just gave a green screen BJ to get famous. But still, I couldn't care less about meeting him. Gimme the money.

I like meeting people, plus his little cameo in Dodgeball was pretty damn funny. Lance FTW!

Stacey 06-30-07 07:28 PM

Money. I spent two weeks with pro cyclist on the Tour de Trump. Meh.

Go_Fast 06-30-07 07:30 PM

2 hundy for sure.

Maelstrom 06-30-07 07:38 PM

200$ for sure. I could care less about meeting or spending time with lance.

blonduathlongrl 06-30-07 08:10 PM

200 bucks or Lance?
yicks, seems kinda cheap:p

OF COURSE Id pick Lance!

Siu Blue Wind 06-30-07 08:11 PM

Lance.

VegaVixen 06-30-07 08:17 PM

I'd take the money. If Lance wanted to spend time with me, I'd have to see how much I can afford. ;)

Siu Blue Wind 06-30-07 08:21 PM

Or how much HE can afford........;) :D

glenng 06-30-07 08:26 PM

Someone that has won the TDF 7 times in a row is remarkable. But hanging out with someone that Type-A/intense and driven would probably annoy me. Congrats Lance, job well done but I think I`d rather have the $200 and spend a day with a good friend or friends.

mlts22 06-30-07 08:47 PM

$200 comes and goes... Lance would be something I would remember a long time.

CdCf 06-30-07 11:38 PM

I'd take the money. As long as the celebs are male... :D

roughrider504 06-30-07 11:40 PM

What if Lance gave me 200$ to spend the day with him?

Huh? Huh? :D

polara426sh 06-30-07 11:41 PM

Money pays my bills. Lance does not.

georgiaboy 06-30-07 11:45 PM

I would spend the day with Lance. I don't idolize him. I think people are more interesting that what $200 can get you. Besides, one of my loved ones could get cancer and having Lance as an aquaintance certainly wouldn't hurt. :rolleyes:

$200 will let you get to know someone very well for an hour.:D

georgiaboy 06-30-07 11:49 PM

Me love you long time. :D

donnamb 07-01-07 12:43 AM

I would happily accept $200 to not have to spend the day with Lance Armstrong. I can't think of any reason why I'd want to spend time with someone I have nothing in common with.
