call it quits

I'd admire Lance Armstrong if he weren't so conceited. His greatest strength, the resolve never to quit, is also his greatest weakness. 7 victories and how many years has he been talking about retiring? Come on, already.

The take I've heard is that he was retired, but after the French press kept bringing up past allegations of blood doping, he's considering going for his eighth straight title. His attitude seems to be 'If they won't leave me alone I won't leave them alone.'

Not exactly the most mature of attitudes, exactly, but riding a bike for a living is not the most mature of carreer fields.

And he didn't he dump his long-supportive wife for Sheryl? That takes balls, too.

Lances first wife is from our parish and the kids were baptized here also. I saw him riding a couple of times when he was here (pure accident) he is AWESOME.

That said, no one gets to be as good as he is without being a bit on the "edge" on the personality side. Give him his due, he at least is a positive example when compared to ding dongs like Randy Moss et al that crowd our attention span. I know that he has been a genuine inspiration for my daughter in her pursuit of becoming a triathlete

By all accounts he also appears to understand "noblesse oblige", no small feat in this day of prima donna athletes

along those lines FYI..some thing we can all appreciate..
