because they're boring and conceited. was watching some interview with lance armstrong, and sure the guy's the best biker ever, but gimme a break don't take yourself so seriously. "i want to be known as a fighter." who the f*** cares how you're known...you're a great biker isn't that enough. "do you want the record of 6 tour de frances?" "i'll never tell." shut up you coy dumbass, of course you want it and who gives a s*** if you do or don't. this is the attitude of athletes in general. i can't look up to anyone like this. runners are just as bad if not worse but i won't name names so as not to offend. i think a good rule of thumb for athletes should be if you're boring, don't be conceited, and if you're conceited, don't be boring, and if possible be neither. the combination is unbearable. there are some exceptions, like that funny basketball player on the nets (i think his name was jayson williams), but didn't he get arrested for shooting someone? oh well.
He cheats; not to jump all over Lance--but he has taken steriods to fight cancer and I think still is. That isn't fair to the other athletes who compete against him. Yes, it is unfortunate to have cancer and hats off to him for beating the odds.
You Two are Morons, if you aren't going to start an intelligent post, just shut up.
By the Way, Jason Williams is a cold blooded killer.
is the three day ban over already?
And if you're boring, conceited and you don't run, don't
bother posting here.
I was wondering if you knew how I could get cancer and become the best distance runner in the world if I lived through it. If you actually knew what cancer actually did to your body I seriously doubt and the fact that he lived is a miracle and that he can still kick major ass is unbelievable, but it's not unfair. He's the real thing.
blah blah blah...i think a good rule of thumb for message board posters is if you are boring...don't post...if you are conceited...don't post...if you are a moron...don't post....if you have a 2by4 up your ass, make sure to take it out before being so critical of hard working athletes.
Hell's Angel = Biker
Lance Armstrong = Cyclist
Cyclists get annoyed when they are referred to as a biker like runners are annoyed when they are referred to as a jogger, except in England where many runners call themselves joggers... and why is that?!?! BTW, that was a rhetorical question. No need to answer.
Mcfly and bonehead,
I would suggest, instead of reading these highly opinionated posts, you sit down in your reading chair and open the book about Lance Armstrong's life with cancer titled: It's Not About The Bike
If you bother to read it, you'll come to the same conclusion that many of us have.
A) He positioned himself as the best cyclist in the world by conditioning his atrophied leg muscles while he was on chemotherapy. He later proved that winning the Tour De France in style and graciousness.
B)He never tested positive for performance enhancing drugs during this time.
C)He's gratious and thankful to his supporters and fans.
D) He probably doesn't want to jinx his chances of winning six tours by boasting about it!
Bonehead: You think Lance is still on steriods, why do you think he is? B/c he is dominant? And how the hell would some nobody runner know what the hell Lance is doing? Listen don't bother posting if you are going to post nonsense. Maybe Lance is on the "juice" but don't tell me what you think, b/c you have NO idea. You are a pimply faced high school runner who has never even talked to him but knows he is on drugs. Please.
if you're lance, and someone asks you an absolutely dumbass 2nd grade level question like "do you want the record of 6 tour de frances" what will you say?
"No, I want to lose." ?
Come on. Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer, and be lucky that you got a response at all.
Lance is the most tested (for performance enhancing drugs) athlete alive today. Do read his book, it just might open you eyes as well as your brain.
I like his response when a dumd reporter asks him "what is he on?" His response is always "I am ON my bike 6 hours a day!"
Talk about running.
