Because it wouldn't be!

How long has he been retired? 2 months?!?

The retirement sounds like a publicity stunt now. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

ok...i watch the tour de france and actually enjoy it. there, i said it. i really hope armstrong doesn't comeback cuz he has made the tour boring. he's like michael schumaker until last year in F1. yawn. i have stopped paying attention to F1 cuz it wasn't racing anymore, just another sunday drive for schummy. :-t btw, F1 was pretty much all the racing i cared about, no nascar or motogp for me.

lance is the best, no doubt, but this year's tour was really not exciting. lance's got the best team and he never gets in trouble, so if he comes back he'll prolly win it again. :-° then it will be another year of me sitting in front of the tv rooting for everyone else and hoping lance retires. :,-(

I think that my pic got to him.

I want him to retire so that they will stop showing cycling on the sports highlights and we can go back to pretending that it's a fringe sport that some uber-fit Europeans practice that we should only care about every 4 years at the Olympics.

btw - isn't there a team of cyclists that ride together and sabotage other teams etc? I have no idea how important the rest of the team is but they get no credit for Lance's victories. If Lance wants to prove something why doesn't he try winning the Tour of France by himself?

Those wrist bands are everywhere in my country. I mean don't get me wrong, I think its great that they are supporting charity, but I think it's more of a fashion thing. I just don't like people who go around showing that they have given to charity.....which they are effectively doing by wearing those bands around.

Sometimes I think too much.

Ya Im not even sure if they make the actual Livestrong bands any more because I haven't seen anybody wear them forever. There are like these ones made by Nike and Adidas that people are wearing, Im getting sick of them. :-P
