lance armstrong must be bored
I read today that Lance “I’ve never tested positive” Armstrong might be coming back to cycling? The story here says that there is a lot of speculation, but Astana (the team that has become the de facto Discovery team, as Johan Bruyneel and Levi “always a bridesmaid…” Leipheimer AND Trek are all involved) says they have no plans for him.
Uhhh, okay. 7 time winner of the Tour (doped or not doesn’t matter) wants to jump on board? You let him. If only to see him take a disgraceful nosedive so that you can rub it in later, hell, let him try. Most cyclists are Type A personalities, and Lance is from TX to boot, so I doubt he’d phone it in. Especially when his alleged plans are to race in 5 races, including the Tour.
Whatever…it is what it is and it will be interesting to watch. Drunkcyclist made mention of this piece of news today, and you should read the comments that people had posted about it. If you know some of the names in the sport, you will laugh your ass off at comment #14, posted by sommerfliesby. I was rolling when I read that shit. In fact, I think I’ll go read it again.
