What a man. What a mighty good man.

Neil said...

I agree. But I'm still more impressed with Kashmir.

Brookelina said...

Ubie! That is exactly what I was singing as I posted this. Well done!

Neil - Kashmir is the woman. Lance is the man.

Every time I see Lance Armstrong dominate a bunch of people, most of whom are younger, I have to remind myself that this guy had cancer taken out of his brain not that long ago. Amazing. Plus he bangs Sheryl Crow.
I didn't want to disappoint you, Brooke, by making a completely clean comment.

Another jerk who cheated on his wife for some piece of skank ass.

Brookelina said...

YNH- and did you know that at one point the doctors gave him less than a 5% chance to survive?

Anonymous - he actually met Sheryl Crow after he was legally separated. Thanks for your thought though, now I know why I considered not allowing anonymous comments.

sunshine said...

What an inspiration. Go Lance! (And Sheryl)

MoDigli said...

I've been noticing more and more of those yellow wristbands lately.

Truly, an inspiration that we can ALL go for our dreams!

:)

gone said...

I bought one of those yellow buddies, but I won't wear it. Yellow clashes with everything, people! I was thinking about getting one of those white ones for the "one campaign." White goes with everything. Sheryl needs to give Lance some fashion lessons, methinks.

MoDigli said...

I like those white ones, too. They'll get dirty quickly; but won't white match with anything?

Brookelina said...

Jacob - I had no idea you were such a fashion plate. I'm thinking Lance went with the yellow wristbands to match le Maillot Jeune. Ya think?

MoMo - I ordered the white bands - they are backlogged by a month. I'm hoping to have them before Christmas. I want to get Lance's too now. Have you read his book - "It's Not About the Bike" - it's amazing!

Anthony said...

I can't watch the tour de france without feeling evil. I love when they wipe out, espeically when a whole group of them go out.

The Moviequill said...

I was doing some research on bicycle brands and came across some notations back in the early 90s about this hot guy Lance and he may actually do something if he puts his mind to it...he makes me crank out my Austin teeth 'yeah baby!'

Damien said...

What a man indiddly doodly deed.
Also loving the wipe out action, theres something about guys in tights skating across tarmac that just sends me to work smiling.

(of course I wouldn't laugh if Lancie crashed)

Ruben said...

I'm impressed by his acomplishments, but I hate him because I'm fat and he's such a skinny bastard.

Brookelina said...

Anthony and Damien - watching the riders wipe out is not funny. And I WAS NOT laughing when it happened - so shut up.

MQ - I was reading that Trek can't even keep up with their bike orders because of Lance - and their bikes are like $10,000!

Ruben - the man is not skinny - he's superhuman. You would be too if you did nothing but ride your million dollar bike and have sex with Sheryl Crow.

TrueJerseyGirl said...

He is super-impressive. But its almost like no one is really paying attention because its just SO OBVIOUS that he is going to win.

Anthony said...

Sorry, just being honest. I know it isn't funny, but I must admit I have a very immature sense of humour.

Brookelina said...

Ok fine. I was laughing. Sue me.

im here somewhere said...

i get a rush when im at the car races and they crash, but i always hope that they are ok, but really, crashes are the best.

sunshine said...

Good luck at the new teacher academy this week!

gone said...

There are 3 things I think when I look at this picture:

1.every time i see a picture of lance armstrong i feel lazy.

2.i find myself grin when they wipe out too(don't ever fall in front of me i will laugh at you)

3.and in my personal opinion, sheryl crow is nasty. But good for her! She's shaggin Lance Armstrong so who am I to talk? I only see her airbrushed and don't know what she really looks like under the makeup, she's probably very beautiful in the morning ;)

gone said...

Sarah - YOU look beautiful in the morning!

Brooke - I can be a bit of a fashionista if I'm not careful. I thought about the yellow thing and how everyone associates that color with him and his victories, etc. But then I just put it out of my head and got grumpy because I shouldn't even be thinking about something so trite.

MoDigli said...

NEver read that book, Brooke!
Now I've got another one to add to my long list of books I need to read someday. I'm hoping that once I'm done with my masters program next month, I'll be able to read alot. Being unemployed will help with that, too!

LOL!

Brookelina said...

I can't help but think that this guy is in such amazing physical condition....he must be unbelievable in ways besides bike riding....if y'all get my drift....

dayum!

Evil Petting Zoo said...

I think ynh speaks for me...he bangs Sheryl Crow. He's A-OK in my book.

thephoenixnyc said...

Simply amazing. Truly inspirational.

im here somewhere said...

he's done now. who are we gonna long for next year? damn him for retiring!

The Dummy said...

Whaddya mean, Brooke? ;) You mean he might give Sting some competition?

Brookelina said...

DD - I'm thinking....yeah. I think he would make Sting look like a premature ejaculator.

Spirit Of Owl said...

Didn't his brother jump over the moon or something?

Paul said...

Two things:

1. There's this great commercial from NIKE where they show Lance doing a press conference right after he heard about his cancer and that it was spreading, and he's all about to cry -- and he says that he's going to try and fight it and try to race again... And then the Nike logo pops up, and it's just awesome cause you know he's going to totally beat the cancer.

2. I am as good a bike rider as Lance, but I choose bowling instead. My loss.

Brookelina said...

Paul - I have seen that commercial and it chokes me up every time. You have to read his book, it's so inspiring.

Owl - wasn't that you?

Brookelina said...

Oh, and bowling? Really? Sorry to hear that.

gone said...

Sting, I hear, is into that tantric shit...the antithesis of premature. Just FYI.

Brookelina said...

Oh I know Jacob! That's my point. My filthy mind can't help but think that Lance's superhuman strength and conditioning would leave Sting in the dust. I mean let's face it, the boy has some serious stamina.

I did not get to watch any of the "Tour D'Lance," but I'm glad he won. He is quite an athlete! Me, well I'm just an athletic supporter :)

t.k.smith said...

Seven! He has to be one of the best - if not the best - athelete in his area of play.

Johnny Menace said...

How manly is it to dominate the national French sport?
