How many times must I say it? Haters hate. That's their job. Lance Armstrong survived testicular cancer. It spread to his brain and at one point he was pronounced dead--and he made it back. He has been tested more than anyone in the history of sport, and never failed a drug test, but has been banned from the sport he made relevant, and stripped of his 7 titles because he couldn't survive the ultimate test. If you ride a bike 3000 miles at 35-40 miles per hour, conventional wisdom says that if you win 7 times, you must be cheating; and they actually want him to defend himself. My Wisdom tells me that he was just better than the competition. Wonder how many of the rest of the field have been tested for 15 years. If there were anything to find, they would have certainly found it by now. Believe me, if there were a substance capable of raising one's performance to this level, Armstrong wasn't the only one taking it. He was just better than everyone else.
"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, 'Enough is enough.'
For me, that time is now," Armstrong said in a statement released on his
website. Armstrong will have to be content with the one thing a hater can never touch...accomplishment.
