Lance Armstrong

I just saw breaking news that USADA has banned Armstrong for life. He said he will no longer fight the allegations against him. :doh: WHAT A LOAD OF PUMPKINS!

Understand, when you eat meat, that something did die. You have an obligation to value it - not just the sirloin but also all those wonderful tough little bits.

Just like the newest modifications in NASCAR relating to the cars and repaving of tracks. if fans don't like what the car modifications have done to the sport (the tandem racing that was so prevalent and boring last year) NASCAR just changes the rules on the cooling system. If the fans think there are not enough wrecks, they just modify the track. Not that I'm saying Lance doped but he was exciting to watch for all those years.

I think the Tour my be using pressure on them. The Tour has come down real hard on doping cuz of revenue loss from sponsors and spectators.
The Tour is trying to regain the public trust and it is a large uphill battle kinda like climbing the Alpe d'Huez with 2 flats.
Interestingly last night my wife, a Tour freak like me, said why not let doping continue? I said doping has come a long way since transfusions and is done chemically. Some athletes have actually died in their sleep when the heart is at rest, since the drugs increase the red blood cells to abnormal levels thus making the blood more viscous.
