Floyd Landis admitting to doping his way through his professoinal cycling career, including his 2006 Tour de France “victory.” I had given up hope on Landis years ago and honestly had put him pretty much out of my mind. Until today.
So, yesterday Floyd admitted to doping. He couldn’t take the overwhelming feeling of guilt of having lied to so many people. Heck, he even took people’s money — soliciting nearly $1 million towards his legal defense fund. He wrote a book, “Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France.” He has clearly been living in a fantasy world where he perpetuated his own lies ad naseum.
A reviewer on Amazon.com noted that Floyd’s book should now be moved to the fiction section. Uh…yeah.
Of course, Lance Armstrong is one of the pros that Floyd is accusing of doping. That’s original. No one has ever accused Lance of such a thing before. You know what? The officials should start testing Armstrong.
You know what? Whatever, Floyd. I’m glad that your conscience finally got the best of you and you decided to clean. Thanks for the honesty — better late than never. But, I still think you’re jerk. Actually, now I think you’re an even bigger jerk.
