The Fallen Mighty

First off, let me just start off with the fact that I have always thought that Lance Armstrong was a Douche bag. I mean, the whole leaving his wife for Sheryl Crow and then leaving her for someone else when she got cancer and hanging out on the beach shirtless with Matthew McConaugheyand just all around I won blah blah blah and look at my body after all of my cancers and whatever Doucehery, Doucheyness got old pretty fast.

With that said and out of the way, the scandal that has emerged around his doping and tax evasion and bribing people to lose so he could win just leaves a sour taste in my mouth, and not in the way you might think. Even though Lance Armstrong is a big ass douche, what he built, what his victories after numerous cancers meant for so many people, the myth that gave so many hope and spirit has been crushed. And while I dislike Lance Armstrong immensely, I feel bad for him and the people who believed in him because that myth was way stronger than anything he actually did.
