Lance tweets photo with his Tour jerseys

now that Lance faces no further drug tests, it’s his turn to try to take the piss…

good ol’ Lance, what a wonderful sense of humor he has. here he is pictured above with a series of yellow jerseys that mean nothing whatsoever…

you have to wonder about the state of mind of the guy – or rather, the mindset, because he’s been like this for as long as the world has known him. petty, indignant, short-tempered, vindictive, &, well, quite the little Princess really – and here he is trying to annoy… who, exactly? this gesture, he may contend, is for his fans, but if they’re buoyed by as cheap a shot as this then things must be hard indeed in WeStillLoveLanceLand.

this is the not much more than the schoolyard bully taunting you with your stolen Twizzler in his hand. in fact, it’s worse than that, because those jerseys represent so very little, other than 7 hollow victories. do we care that he was possibly the best rider of that doped generation? not if we have sense. he, along with Verbruggen & co., engendered that culture, supported it, thrived in it. if there’s one thing missing from this image, it’s a bag of blood on a stand dripping into his raised left arm…

nice try Lance. that might have worked back in 6th grade, but not anymore. it’s not a sense of indignation in his detractors that he’s summoned with this, though certainly not pity either. if anything, it’s exactly what they’d expect. a tired, sad, futlie gesture that proves nothing but the fact that he has completely lost any sense of perspective, any sense of what might be better for the sport he proclaims to love. hopefully Bruyneel will go through with his appeal against USADA’s ruling and LA’ll be indicted, and then he can turn up to court wearing all of his 7 yellowed jerseys.

until then, i guess he’ll just keep on being Lance…
