Hamilton Says Lance Armstrong Took Banned Substances
Say it ain't so, Lance.
Tyler Hamilton now says that he witnessed Lance Armstrong shooting banned substances while they were teammates. Hamilton is now the second teammate of Armstrong (the other was Flloyd Landis) who said they saw Armstrong take performance-enhancing substances.
CNN has a report with some sanitized pictures of Armstrong.
Armstrong, I think, is one of the true heroes of our time. As you can see from the first line of this post, I'm like a little kid when it comes to Lance. I was following the Tour (that's the Tour de France; it's like other things that are on a first-name basis over the years, starting with Jackie and onto Lance and continuing today with Pink) way, way back in high school (think Breaking Away) living in the Midwest when I thought myself so, so European. Six consecutive wins and seven overall wins of the Tour. But then he puts his fame to good use. I rank him right up there with the likes of Bono, who you can say what you want, but puts his money and his fame to good use trying to change the world for the better. When did Mick Jagger ever do that?
