Quite Comprehensive: The Oral History of Lance Armstrong

No, you dirty-minded Fred, not the history of Lance in the back seat of cars… which is kind of a misnomer as he’s always in the driver’s seat. Right, Madame Armstrong?

Here is a thoroughly investigated and lovingly compiled history of Lance’s verbal spewages, some conscious and others less so, about how great and lovely and just darntooting honest he was, til he wasn’t, but who cares anyway? It’s all American Pie, the Apple Dream and cheating/lying athletes/politicians at the end of the day, just smile and keep blinking sideways, no big deal and yee flippin’ haw all the way to the bank.

Well, I care. You might too. And the person that compiled this does also.

  1. we were all lead to believe that this was just a little scrape of parked cars on the way home so hey, no big deal, …. but as with everything Lance the truth is much bigger.. that’s a full on American SUV truck with is ‘hood’ folded !!

  2. I watched a Youtube video of the 1997 TdF while I was working this weekend and it just made me…sad? Amused? Riis, Ulrich, Zabel, Vironque, Zulle, every name mentioned was a shamed doper except Robby McEwen. My favorite(?) part was towards the end when a Festina rider won a stage and Ligget talked about Festina being happy to “end on a high note”. You just can’t make this stuff up! I loved watching it at the time and I’ll be glued to it again this summer. I’m such a tool. Screw you, Lance!

  3. I was done by ’92, and I feel kind of thankful for that, though i did start watching again just before he came back, that was painful enough. And yes, i’ll be watching too… do we never learn?!
