    That's actually too close to reality to be funny imo.

    Funny how he still pulled off a 3rd place finish last year despite all the scrutiny. You have to figure they have found something then if there was anything to be found.

    Armstrong has gone into quiet mode. He only speaks through his attorneys and PR machine now. After a few weeks goes by, or when another rider steps forth to corroborate Landis' claims, they will start making up some more lies about Landis, Lemond, former Posties, etc.
    Livestrong. The personal fundmaker of Lance Armstrong. The company who are in business to not donate to cancer research, but only to inform people that cancer is bad.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we never had to worry about athletes cheating?

    I was thinking the same thing.
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

    Uh, what happened to the "train wreck" emoticon? Oh wait . . . here it is!

    In the wake of current events the story seemed almost completely believable until the end of the article. I had forgotten "The Onion" was a satire blog and was almost completely taken in for the first few sentences.

    The funny thing is that if Lance is actually pushed to the point of thinking that he has a serious chance of going to jail. He will end up doing this kind of a press conference. In the current climate I wonder if Lance really thought the article was funny.
