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.

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

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.
