WHAT IF...Union Pacific to Sponsor Lance Armstrong's team?
Picking up where 7-11, Motorola, USPS, and Discovery Channel left off,
Union Pacific today became the major corporate sponsor of Lance Armstrongs
UP spokesman reportedly said "If a railroad from Kazijackstan, a cell phone
and a bottled water company can sponsor a Tour de France team, then
Americas premier railroad certainly can." "Besides, it is a good color
match for us."
Jim Young, pictured below with Lance, said "This will bring us
international attention and recognition , while providing Team UP a stable
3 year contract to build the next tour winner. By sponsoring a team in the
world's premiere sporting event, and the recognition Team UP achieves when
competing in events like the Tour of California and Tour of Georgia, Union
Pacific reaches a broad audience on potential employees and customers. We
have committed not only to the team, but also to Lance and his Livestrong
Foundation to eradicate Cancer as a killer in the US.
