Armstrong nominated as Texan of the Year


By: Cycling NewsPublished: December 28, 11:27, Updated: December 28, 12:41Do you like this?
Dallas newspaper calls him “a fighter, a survivor and a cunning, steely-eyed liar”

Lance Armstrong has been nominated for Texan of the Year – but not as a sterling example of the Lone Star State's population. The Dallas Morning News has nominated him for its award as a top newsmaker who has had a great impact.

“Armstrong’s crash to Earth in 2012, with all its painful reverberations, leaves a Texas-size crater that qualifies him as a finalist for this year’s distinction. His fall wasn’t pleasant to behold,” the newspaper said in an editorial. “If nothing else, it’s a lesson about the perils of hero worship.”

The title is one which does not necessarily reflect well on the recipient. “The Dallas Morning News Texan of the Year is a distinction we bestow for impact, be it for better or for worse. It reflects the prominence of what Texans do, not what we’d prefer them to do.”

Armstrong, a lifelong resident of Texas, first came to notice in the state as a teenage triathlete. He enthralled millions of Texans and fans around the world as he came back from cancer to win seven consecutive Tours de France, and raised millions of dollars from this Livestrong Foundation.

But the legend came to an end in 2012. “This year came the epic fall, a legacy imploded in weeks. The head of the U.S. anti-doping agency revealed him as a serial cheat, the enforcer of 'the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.' Sponsors abandoned Armstrong. Nike said he misled the company for a decade.

“Now the Armstrong brand will forever be that of a fighter, a survivor and a cunning, steely-eyed liar.”

EDIT: But then again you would probably enjoy a life of complete solitude which all you do is lie on a couch all day long in front of seven jerseys that mean absolutely nothing to anyone except yourself..


i suppose its more worthwhile to have been a government slut who served and did whatever they told you to do even though it may have been wrong?

dont take this as a negative, just pointing out some things............

I get what you're saying... just there might be a more diplomatic way of getting your point across. lol.



I don't have much of an opinion on this topic anymore, because I just don't think it matters in the world (I like South Parks take on it). But you have to admit, THIS is f*#king gross.

Think about 7 posters of all the routes you did that you took at a crux, or pulled on a peice, or got beta but call it a flash, or maybe pre-rehearsed on toprope and didn't tell anyone... could you look at that every day when you know that they aren't real? That you have to lie to keep them as trophies? It takes a sad, sad person... or a psycho. I don't know which he is, and it is none of my business - but he let that camera man into his home for me to catch at least that glimpse of narcissism...

Armstrong now admits that all along he lied and scammed everyone.

He just tried to payoff on cyclist $300,000 to lie that Lemond juiced.

The cyclist refused.

Now Armstrong is trying to make a deal that if he goes public and admits his lies he'll be able to compete again.

Bizarre

He' screwed, and they shouldn't make any deal with because he scammed everyone, bullied, blackmailed and fuked everyone over.

Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah WinfreyBy: Cycling NewsPublished: January 9,



Lance Armstrong will give his first interview since being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles later this month when he appears on the 'Oprah's Next Chapter' program on her eponymous US cable television network.

The interview, which will go to air on January 17 will also be available simultaneously through the network's website.

Armstrong was the focus of the United States Anti-Doping Agency's investigation which labelled the US Postal team's operation as "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen" on October 10, 2012. USADA stripped Armstrong of all results from August 1, 1998 when he declined to contest charges of doping in late August and handed the Texan a lifetime ban all of which was later ratified by cycling's governing body, the UCI.

The 41-year-old will give the interview from his home in Texas.

A media release on Oprah.com said that "Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career."

(CNN) -- A Lance Armstrong representative tried
to make a donation of about $250,000 to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency
before the agency launched the investigation
that led to the cyclist being stripped
of his Tour de France titles, the chief of the USADA said.

So it's just been confirmed today.

Lance made his full confession that he lied all along and swindled millions from everyone associated with him.

Bob D Antonio along with many others here over the years vehemently defended Lance and his lies thinking they were true ......
