Sports Update

Is there anything more to say about Lance Armstrong? I was discussing it this weekend and I personally can not think of a more unparalleled athletic achievement than what he has done.

Not only did he win the most grueling cycling race in the world, he won it after beating cancer, which had spread throughout his body. Not only did he win the race, he won it SEVEN times. Not only did he win the race SEVEN times, he won the race seven times IN A ROW.

He did it with class and with the respect of pretty much every one of his rivals, who escorted him to the finish line.

Nothing has ever been done more physically and mentally challenging that that; at least nothing that I can think of.

Anyone else?

Agreed. probably the only thing that is comparable is Cal Ripken's streak. He played at a high level throughout his 2000+ straight games. Even more important, when he ceased playing at a high level and felt he was hurting the team, he asked the coach to sit him.

Lance is the epitome of the word stud.
