Is there a lesson in Lance?
I’m not sure about that, but there certainly is a lot of poop to clean up.
I'll put a comment in here Bob, so you will have one, since no one reads your "stuff" any more and hasn't for years. You referenc drug cheats and how they shouldn't be give a break, yet you fail to mention the biggest alleged drug cheat of them all, the man you and Dan covered up for on numerous occasions over the years: Your pal, Roger Clemens, whom you said at one time you might vote into the hall of fame. Roger the Texas Con man, presumed pathalogical liar, drug cheat, perjurer, threw his family under the bus, suborned a witness, chronic adulterer, all allegations made against him that many people truly believe. As a long time subscriber I recall the slogan, "Have you seen the Globe today?" Ya, I have, and some days I sit back and relect on when the Globe sports section actually gave its readers an honest day's work instead of the agenda driven gruel you so often see today.
Don't see what's wrong with Bob having a anti-drug message Norton.
There is a place for all athletes. However, there should be a place for the best athletes in the world. The best athletes in the world should be honored, not hated. To villainize the Tiger Woods, the Lance Armstrongs, and the Mark McGwires, it sounds almost like a Communist agenda. It should be noted that Posey is the only player to hit a Grand Slam in these playoffs. The Yankees Grand Slam has been deemed superfluous.
Glad to see you haven't tota;;y retired Bob. The only thing that could be worse for cycling is if Barry Bonds wins next years Tour de France.
Lance not only let down fans of cycling everywhere. He let down countless cancer survivors who saw him as hope. They are truly the victims here.
