In less than a week, Lance Armstrong was dropped by Nike, stepped down from his post as Chairman of his Livestrong foundation and was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. Lost in all of this is the fact that he still maintains his innocence.
It’s a tough situation because he has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for cancer research. Oh yeah, and he allegedly cheated in bicycle races. Which should matter more? Not to mention that he did it in quite possibly the dirtiest sport of them all: cycling.
Armstrong removed “7-time Tour de France winner” from his Twitter bio in the wake of all of this. Is that an admission of guilt?
(And is it me or does he look a lot like Skip Bayless here?)
