See A Pattern Here?

One month after having won his seventh victory in the Tour de France this summer, Lance Armstrong, recently retired, is once again the center of attention. But this time the issue is doping. Six of his urine samples, collected during the 1999 Tour and analyzed later by the Châtenay-Malabry lab, show signs of EPO. In its Thursday, August 23 issue [sic], [French sports daily newspaper] L’Equipe gave proof. le source

Look Closer:
The leader of the free world and the world’s biking master rode for 17 miles on Bush’s ranch for about two hours at midmorning. source

On Monday, nearly five months later, the Baltimore Orioles [Rafael Palmeiro] slugger became baseball's highest-profile player to be suspended 10 days for using steroids. While he didn't deny testing positive for the drugs, he insisted that ingesting them was an accident. jock0-homo source

"He's the kind of person that's going to stand up in front of the klieg lights and say he didn't use steroids, and I believe him. Still do," the US president said. klieg light source

Close enough to see the children?
To help children make right choices, they need good examples. Athletics play such an important role in our society, but, unfortunately, some in professional sports are not setting much of an example. The use of performance-enhancing drugs like steroids in baseball, football and other sports is dangerous, and it sends the wrong message - that there are short cuts to accomplishment, and that performance is more important than character. So tonight I call on team owners, union representatives, coaches and players to take the lead, to send the right signal, to get tough and to get rid of steroids now. whitehouse liar source

So apparently the message to be gathered from this is George W Bush really respects a man that can stare you in the face and lie. Interesting...

You're pathetic and clearly do not understand the sport of cycling or the French tabloid press.

First of all, if EPO is what it takes to win seven tours, then someone would have done it before Lance since EPO was used (and was undetectable) since 1990. Secondly, the French hate Americans, especially when we succeed, and even more especially when we beat them in the Tour de France or the French Open.

9 urine samples tested positive and Armstrong's identity is the only one disclosed to the public? That reeks of a set up, considering now that he's retired.
