Doesn’t the face say it all, to those who hate him and support him?

How can you not be intrigued by the look of max effort, a long record of world class achievement and overcoming testicular cancer at the beginning of his career?

To me this image is AWESOME and the guy is in more ways then one!

So the negative press campaign focused on Lance Armstrong being led by Juliet Macur in the NY Times Sports section gets my attention, big time!

I give her credit in her latest item for mentioning the pros and cons, but the negative beat can’t be ignored. I wonder what it is really about? Does she really want “the news and all that is fit to print” or is she just pursuing a chimera of her own making?

However, you see it the LANCE is AWESOME and Juliet is just a reporter seeking a negative scoop!

But the more she writes in this vein the more she confirms to me that there is no smoking needle! To me she seems to be another version of all those “fair and balanced” reporters who don’t have much to say about all those ‘mericans who think Obama, their sitting President, is a Muslim and a secret one at that!

How will this epic within the epic of Armstrong’s unprecedented TourdeF 7 wins end? Will it ever end? Will this paragon of physical fitness and survivor of testicular cancer end up on the same scrap  heap as Floyd Landis, the much maligned American cyclist who won a Tour and then had the title stripped from him.

The latest reports seem ominous but it seems to me that they’ve been after Armstrong since he had his first Tour victory and that was umpteen years ago.
