U.S. Government Declines Armstrong’s $5 Million Fraud SettlementBy Rocky Thompson on January 17th, 2013
I will not be watching the human garbage known as Lance Armstrong on Oprah today, but I will take great joy in reading about his downfall in all the newspapers shortly after the interview airs. (Though it is stretched over two days, so we’ll it’ll be a drawn out joy). One good bit of news for people out there like myself deep in Schadenfreude, the U.S. Government has turned down Armstrong’s proposal of a $5 million payout and testimony against other dopers deeming it “inadequate.”
What’s most amazing to me about this situation is that Lance must not have a single friend left in the world. Anyone from his past who had been caught doping was treated as an outcast who betrayed him and systematically vilified and slandered. And now the group who doped and lied for him is being offered up so he can save himself.
Pro cycling really is a soap opera.
