That doesn’t really get under my skin all that much.
I mean really, they all do it. It doesn’t make it right, but it is a FACT of competitive sport. You’ll find it in EVERY sport from the pros all the way down to high school….
Anywhere that money is involved….where athletes want scholarships, contracts, and/or endorsements there are performance enhancing drugs of some type….
If a handful do it while the rest feel obligated to perform to the same level…
Well, there’s only 1 way to get there….
So the fact he won on PED’s is not a big issue in my book. The other guys lost on PED’s, so whatever….
It’s their body…they get to deal with the ramifications of all that poison, not me.
My issue with Lance Armstrong lies with the way he treated his fellow teammates and “friends”.
I always thought of him as a cool cat.
The kinnda guy you’d wanna have beer with after a good hard race. The kinnda guy that would cheer for the underdog and then slap him on the back and say, “Great Job!” when it was all over and done.
After hearing what a douche-bag he was to everyone once this crap started coming out…
It just totally pisses me off.
There’s a lot we don’t know that’s for sure. And I’m sure all of the parties involved have their own sordid accounts of the events, so it’s not really my place to judge anyone for what they did or did not do.
But mean people suck.
There’s no way around THAT!
There’s no forgiving THAT!
By the end of the day, we’ll all get to hear what he has to say for himself…
If anyone REALLY cares anymore…
I’m not sure that I do.
Ride Happy, My Friends!
