Two Armstrongs

I hope most of you haven’t been spending too much time on the moon. As we bring about this week, two ‘Armstrongs’ were on the major news headlines for 2 very different reasons. But they had one thing in common — inspiring a generation from their exploits. One set foot on the moon, the other faced cancer and won.

Lance Armstrong just announced that he would quit fighting the dope charges. It is a shame for him to be brought down to this level. Surprisingly, he was never found ‘positive’ on the dope charges brought against him. But as I read somewhere, it seems that almost all or at least a significant part of the top cyclists were found positive for various doping charges, so Lance’s impressive 7 Tour de France titles came as a huge surprise amid all the other drug scandals involving the other cyclists.

That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind

Neil Armstong passed away on the 25th of August. He will forever be remembered as the first man to set foot on the moon. By being part of the Apollo 11 mission, he has become a hero for all mankind. It is said that if you were to find yourself on a clear night with the moon shining bright, give it a wink!

In another sidenote, Samsung lost its patency lawsuit against Apple. If you’re asking what would be the outcome for the layperson, go here and have a read.

  1. 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 that 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……

    Most discusted,

    1. My personal opinion is that he should have his 7 titles returned to him. Like you’ve said, he was never been tested positive before. I think it’s about time they take action against the pharmaceutical industry.
