Lance Armstrong Claims The U.S. Government Should Have Known He Was Doping And Stopped Sponsoring Him
Today in “Boy, Lance Armstrong has some balls, huh?” (which is ironic, because his balls are likely very small at this point), we bring you the
Tour de France winner’s defense of the false claims lawsuit that the U.S. government filed against him.
Everyone hates Lance Armstrong. If you want to pile on the guy, the timing has never been better. And that’s good news for the U.S. Department of Justice, which today joined a suit against Armstrong originally filed by former teammate Floyd Landis, alleging Armstrong defrauded the government through leading a doping program among U.S. cyclists. But is the government’s involvement a good thing?
Lance Armstrong May Soon Find Out That There Are Consequences To Bullying, Thanks To A Criminal Investigation

Part One Of The Lance Armstrong Interview Is Airing Now, If You’re Still Into That Sort Of Thing [Video]
Per Rick Reilly’s own admission, he’s been defending Lance Armstrong for years. In spite of the boatloads of accusations and evidence, Reilly has lived by Lance’s word – which, of course, seems ironic, when Armstrong’s word was the only thing standing between himself and a guilty juicing verdict. Well that and a ton of passed drug tests, but athletes circumventing drug tests isn’t anything new these days.
Over the weekend, reports came out that Lance Armstrong would admit to doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The interview, however, was preempted by a brief Armstrong visit to Livestrong, the foundation from which he resigned in November. According to an anonymous source, Armstrong apologized and shed a few tears, but did not admit to doping outright.
From Fox News: “The legendary cyclist’s decision to admit to Oprah Winfrey that he used illegal performance-enhancing drugs to dominate the sport could cost him far more than his reputation, as a host of parties are queuing up to sue the fallen cycling star who made millions for himself and his cancer charity.”
