So, what exactly did he do? He's just, like, not actively travelling across the world trying to clear his name anymore? And that automaticaly means he's guilty? I don't really get that.

I mean, regardless of whether he's innocent or not (probably not), why does him saying, "I don't really feel like dealing with all this crap anymore. Nobody believes me anyways" equate to an admission of guilt? All these people are saying that if he was innocent he would keep fighting, and I think that's kind of crap. Pete Rose fought for a long time before ever admitting what he did. I think liars are probably more capable of life-long denial than people who are telling the truth.

Well, the timing of things looks bad - he was just about to go into an arbitration in which he was going to be confronted (reportedly) by 10 former teammates who were going to testify against him. And, knowing that if he didn't do the arbitration, his titles would be revoked, he stopped fighting.

I'm not saying that proves guilt (it doesn't), but I can understand why folks are leaping to that conclusion.

I said most everything I had to say yesterday, but it's an unfair system. There's no sense in fighting it if you know its untrue and your name and reputation is already getting shit on. Even if he won arbitration (which he wouldn't have), would it have done any good? Yeah, he'd still have his titles but USADA already did too much damage. Now he can just focus on LIVESTRONG and go from there.

I'm only passionate about a few things, family, music, Cubs, and the gut feeling I got whenever I saw Lance Armstrong (and what a P.O.S. he is/was).

I have never owned a bracelet, let alone a rubbery one. Society latches on to a fad and somehow, some of them never go away. The "livestrong" bracelets just set me off. In the voice of Harry Caray, "Here's a guy, who gets cancer, has his bawls removed, cancer goes into remission, and then all of a sudden, he doesn't like his wife anymore." What a prick. This poor (probably rich) woman is by her man's side night after night with the kids through all of the treatments and such... then he leaves her for Sheryl Crow once he realizes he's not gonna die. In a dramatic twist of irony, he dates her for awhile, then SHE gets cancer and he breaks up with her. This guy is a piece of work.

I could go on, but I won't. I have never supported him, never will.

So, if Lance was medically considered crazy would we have to say he was nut?

Lance is doing RAGBRAI (giant bicycle ride across Iowa) later this month.  Thinking about pelting him with eggs shot from a potato gun.

He may get a little testy.

Sounds like it would be a ball.
