hotdog -- You're right, Lance Armstrong needs to return all settlement monies he fraudulently obtained - and hope he's not counter sued. It's "Lyle Alzado" (nose tackle - Browns, Raiders) who died from steroid use. That's why I don't care about athletes who violate performance enhancement rules - natural selection ultimately can't be cheated. Lance Armstrong actually does "have" a bike shop.

Another day. Another scandal. Another high-profile celebrity sits on Oprah’s couch to express contrition and to try to resuscitate his image. Today it’s Lance Armstrong, but tomorrow it will be someone else, which is why I believe it’s time to say enough. No more free passes for our children’s role models.

I don’t know Lance Armstrong personally, but apparently nobody else really does either. What I did know was the same constructed fairy tale that he sold all of us: the inspirational story of a young cyclist who nearly died from cancer and was resurrected through the miracles of modern medicine...
