The day a hero died..

I was sad when I heard the Oprah news..
No question..
Why?
Cause Armstrong was my hero..

On days of summer college, when I thought I was too tired to run..
I would turn on the Tour de France..
And see Armstrong dump ulrich faster than I dumped my lovely but crazy ex fianc??e..
Or battle the great pantini in the alps..
And it inspired me to go out and run a 10miler..
Plus an American dominating the French past time..
(We Brits have a big rivalry with the French)..
You just knew they hated armstrongs domination..

And he passed every test..
And he came clean..
And he had the coolest quote of all time..
"I'm on my bike what are you on..

All of his rivals were on the dope too..
If everyone cheats..
Then no one cheats..
Ulrich cheated..
Pantini got busted..
Hamilton, basso and landis.. All cheated..
Etc etc..

Armstrong was a huge inspiration to me for 7 years..
He inspired me to push the boundaries.. Physically..
And he did an insane amount of work..
Great work ethic..
Plus he really got me into the tour..
7 tour titles is just fantastic..
It was an even playing field.. Don't forget that..


Well, lets see...

Webster says that inspiration is "a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation"

LMFAO......hahahahahahaha.

Lance is no better than any other cheater, including that **** that you used to play street ball with. You know, the guy no one really wanted to pick up. It wasnt that he sucked at bball, but more like you didnt want to put up with his BS for the afternoon


Ha ha

This is how I genuinely feel..

January 22, 2013  07:07 PM ET

Just because its not real..
Doesn't mean it can't inspire you..
Wwf and Star Wars..
All make believe..
But the fan base is still huge..

I saw Armstrong make a speech once..
He is very down to earth..

I don't doubt your sincerity. And I don't care that all of cycling was cheating its collective **** off for years. (BTW) I think Lance's biggest advantage was the removal of one of his nuts... You know how hard it is to sit on those bike seats for that long with two? Anyway, seriously, my biggest concern is that fact that Lance (what a gay name, it's almost as bad a Lawrence) decided to trash and burn everything and anyone who dared speak the truth about him. He went after people in a devestatingly personal way. I hope his is successfully sued to the point of bankruptcy and homelessness. Eff him.

What was he suppose to do?

People NEED heroes..

Who cares if its a little white lie..

He did what he had to do..

The playing field was even..
Who cares..

If it inspires people to get out of bed..

Wrestling and movies as both entertainment and we know that upfront before we choose to watch either. No comparison to what Lance did. NONE!!!

That's just sad....you should NEVER look up to an athlete. They ALL make moral and ethical sacrifices to get where they are...

 
January 23, 2013  08:32 AM ET

The only thing more sad is the people that actually believed he was clean and beating all these other guys who were known to be cheating...he used people's gullibility to make a TON of money for cancer research...it's ALL good...
