Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah
Not surprising at all. in a sport where every other person in it seems to be on steriods, when all of your teammates used it. it's very hard to believe that you aren't. All the good he did for cancer research would have outweighed the bad of cheating to win, but the way he went about trying to cover up the cheating, by spreading rumors about people and threatening people, is worse than the actual cheating. If he had just came clean right when he was first accused then I don't think people would care as much and i sure wouldn't have as much of a problem.
I like what he's done for cancer, but can't say i like him much as a person.
About 90% of the proceeds weren't for cancer research, rather cancer awareness. I know, semantics. Just throwing that information out there. Regardless, he's still done a lot for the cause.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
