Since he keeps showing up in the news, let’s pontificate the Lance Armstrong debacle. This man lied consistently for years and apparently would never have come clean had he not been caught. He can apologize all he wants but this was not a misstep. It was the ultimate in a calculated effort to cheat himself, his competitors, his sport, and his country. He had children stricken with cancer believing he was a hero and a model member of society worthy of emulation. Most want to forgive transgressions but I’d leave bicycling and competitive sport to those who have trained clean all their lives in pursuit of an athletic dream free from performance enhancing drugs and / or treatments. Armstrong will be in a much better position to receive redemption in a contribution to society that no longer involves sport.
