Lance Armstrong any different than the guy that grows my weed? I don't think so.

USADA and the DEA are the ones that should be ashamed and give the money they received back. Neither agency can catch shit. I like the guy that grows weed and I know the law is being broken. I think I like Lance Armstrong just because he was being watched so closely and never got caught. My inner pirate has to smile and say "Well done".

2. That's what I thought - until it came out he forced his team to dope

 

If he wants to do it, more power to him

If he wants to force it on his teammates, however - that's fucked up

6. Do you think the accusations were untrue?

 

If it were one, I might think so - but several stories seemed to say the same thing.

Granted, they could have corroborated their stories before hand.

We will see Thursday night...

11. I think they are true. I root for the fox to escape the hounds too.

I wish the revenue generated from the fall of Lance Armstrong stories went to the Livestrong Charity and not Oprah, CNN, Fox NYT.

3. I'd call giving back every trophy he ever won "caught"

Not to mention all the sponsorship deals that are now out the window. I don't have an exact number on how much income he's lost, but it's gotta be in the millions. That's pretty well caught.

8. Professional Sports. I don't care.

What sports professionals take or don't take is of no interest to me at all, just as professional sports are of little interest to me. I'd just as soon watch a plumber do his job.

10. All I want is his recipe.

If it did all of that for Lance, it would sure help my MS.

12. Is your dealer named Cheaty McLiar?

 

He's cool because he got away with it for so long? Are Barry Bonds and Jose Canseco rockin' dudes too?

Pot should be legal, or at least tolerated. Doping in sports should not.
