Livewrong?

August 25, 2012

I don’t want to believe what I’m hearing. Someone who has done so much for so many found a way to cheat the system?  The USADA (U.S. anti-doping agency) has stripped Lance armstrong of his 7 Tour de France titles and banned him from the sport for life after he dropped his fight against the doping charges. We may never know the truth, unless Lance actually admits to doping. That seems unlikely considering his staunch denials over the years.

So what will happen to his endorsement deals? The bottom Line NBC News says “Nike plans to continue to support Lance and the Lance Armstrong Foundation.” Nike has helped raise over $100 million for Lance’s foundation Livestrong.

And this from the Wrap: “Our partnership with Lance remains unchanged,” Paul Chibe, Anheuser-Busch’s vice president of U.S. marketing, said in a statement. “He has inspired millions with his athletic achievement and his commitment to helping cancer survivors and their families.”

So at Least for now his endorsers will stand with him. Will you?

    Dear USADA,

    Congratulations……….All of you people there at the USADA have proved with your witch hunt of Lance Armstrong that you ALL are on the same playing field of some of the most despicable people on Earth……..right up there with the freaks at the Topeka, KS Westboro Church that picket soldiers funerals…..

    You people with your “Holier than Thou” attitude do NOTHING to inspire or lift people up as Lance Armstrong does…….you only exist to tear people down, which not only makes you all the worst kind of people, but makes you complete losers……and losers always hate people better than themselves…..that’s why they are losers and will always be losers……and you people are major LOSERS…….

    Lance Armstrong passed ALL the tests (nearly 500 of them in his career and many that were random) and still you persisted because you could not stand the fact that he was just a better athlete than all the rest……..I would expect that you will soon be going after Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps and most likely will be opening cases against Jim Thorpe, Jesse Owens, and Michael Jordan so you losers can feel like you have anything to do worth while…………

    There is NOT a Rath or Punishment severe enough to impose on all of you there at the USADA that you ALL deserve more than anyone I can think of for what you have done to Lance Armstrong, His Family, and to the millions of people around the world that his story and achievements have inspired and given strength to overcome against all odds……..You will all get yours in this life or the next……
