Lance Armstrong is a liar! I am watching Oprah's interview with Lance Armstrong as I type this blog post. I don't follow cycling or watch the Tour de France. I have no interest in the sport of cycling whatsoever. But as an American, I have the right to be disgusted by him. He represented our country and he cheated while doing it. He claimed to be a role model for our children.
Below is an excerpt from his website. The red remarks are mine.
Lance's StorySince he made history in 1999, he has won the tour six more times, and has become one of the most recognizable and admired people of this era. (Now he is one of the most arrogant and shameful people of this era)
What is his punishment for lying, committing perjury, cheating and doing drugs? Will he serve jail time? Will he have to repay all of the companies that endorsed him and paid him to represent them? Will he need to return the millions in prize money that he "won"?
What happens to the people that came in second to him? They were the true winners. Do they get to sue him for cheating them out of the titles?
He is a coward and a bully. Why should anyone believe anything that comes out of his mouth? His "apology" comes across as arrogant and insincere. What is the right punishment? I know that whatever it will be- it will not be enough.
