I kept hoping that LeMond would burst into the room clutching a metal folding chair. Wild-eyed and bellowing incoherently, he would smack Lance on the back of the head with the chair in the very finest WWE tradition.

Oh, well. Maybe tomorrow...

I had to un-delete it from my "favorites" list to record the show. Will re-delete it when the recording is done.

Hell, I'm Maxwell Smart "this close" to junking DirecTV all together.

Too many small timers have been busted for me to believe it was financially out of reach for anyone in the pro peleton.

Google 'Chuck Coyle', I used to lead him out when we were cat 5s. I am pretty sure that he never made much more than $40k / year from racing. There may have been some access issues but Joe Papp pretty much ensured that anyone in the US who wanted EPO could get it.

The more I listen to him the angrier I get.

He's still a tool and I don't think for a minute he has started to understand just how awful a human being he is.

I thought maybe I'd be impressed by something-- anything he said. But that did not happen.

All those clips they showed-- the times when he was lying his bollocks off and being an ass on top of it, then they cut back to him and he has no emotion.

PS
I don't believe for a minute that he didn't dope when he came back. I think the statute of limitations has more to do with that timely claim than reality.

Tygart stated emphatically that his bio passport showed doping in 09 and 10.

Funny, Lance said he would not have been caught if he did not come back. That is a backhanded admission as any that he knew there was a chance he could get popped. Boy, pop he did.

Lance is gonna be eating plenty of crow in the future... and you can bet dollars to donuts that it won't taste nearly as good as Sheryl's growler did.

That's what I'm doing now that football is, tragically, largely done for ... well it seems like forever.

Well, right after the 24 hours of Daytona.

Sorry for the hijack.

I keep creeping to the "abyss". $104 a month just seems like a waste at this point, for me.
