Austin Texans are celebrating, I'm one of them! by JohnnyG on 2004-07-25 11:53:32
Just got back from the Fox & Hound pub where a celebration for the achievement of Lance Armstrong has concluded. My company is a big sponsor of the Armstrong foundation. I am simply a fan of Lance. I must say that in the field of sports I have never considered cycling to be anywhere near the top of my focus and attention. Footbal/basketball/baseball and yes even soccer ranked above cycling. Other than Lance and the past 6 years Tour de France I still rank cycling quite low. Visiting with folks who are bald from chemotherapy during my nightly excursions to the Fox & Hound over the past weeks has made me realize that overcoming cancer is a sport in itself. From what these cancer victims endure I have a greater appreciation of suffering and hope and either winning or losing a battle. It's motivational to this healthy young man! Anyway, I completed the personal downing of 2 bottles of Perrier-Jouet champaigne this afternoon cheering Lance and I wanted to write something before I take a nap to sleep it off. Lance is not perfect but he is a tremendous athlete who overcame terrible odds to achieve his victory. Much respect, much love to him, his fantastic foundation and the comfort it gives cancer sufferers and my fellow Austinites who are some of the best people in the world to celebrate with--->Cheers!

|Lance is a hero and no drugs to help him perform were detected in his piss like so many shitty cheaters this year and before. He gets drug tested for all kinds of crap even drugs that mask other drugs and they keep his blood for a lifetime so when detection methods improve over the years they retest and see if there really is something in his red goo that cheated him forward to victory. That cancer is bad stuff too. He be a tough dude getting over that ball cancer and everything.|
