More proof the French hate hygiene: Armstrong's shower lands him in hot water

    Now of course we all know Lance Armstrong is a fraud, but good Tebow the French are looking like fools:


    As an aside...who do you have in your office pool for this weekend's Paris-Roubaix? I'm going with my boy big George Hincapie from San Luis Obispo's own Columbia/High Road!

    The French are only looking like fools for letting Armstrong leave the room in violation of the rules.

    They're simply outraged anyone would take a) more than 15 seconds to take a shower, or b) more than one every six months.

    Good Tebow... will they give it a rest?

    I'm utterly convinced Armstrong dopes, just like everyone else on the major cycling tours.

    And I'm utterly convinced the Frogs are unequivocally out to get him. Since they've been at it for 10+ years and haven't been able to get anything to stick, they must be totally goddamn incompetent.

    Is deeply offended by that last remark.

    I think I believe teh same thing, but everybodyfreakingelse has gotten caught at some point--from major guys to hacks. Either he is doing a great job of covering it up (which he could be) or he's not doping.

    Like you, Starman, I also think Armstrong dopes.

    But "frogs"? What the fuck? It seems no one else of any other nationality has caught him either, so I guess the entire system is incompetent, which it might very well be.

    Lance is a cyclist.

    This is all.

    Also France, some god-awful ghettos aside, is a nice place.

    If he's doping, why would he have even considered coming back? Wouldn't he possibly have taken the I-got-away-with-it-so-let's-get-out-before-I'm-outed mentality if he was doping?

    Just some food for thought. Then again, maybe he is that arrogant.

    I think he is that arrogant.

    He might be. If this doesn't further fuel Lance's dislike of many things French except the race itself ...
