    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

    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.
    Momentum is my only friend.

    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!

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

    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.

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

    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.
    Would you like a dream with that?

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

    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.
