I don't care how cliche it is. It's true. Lance Armstrong is a hero. And I'm happy to count him as one of mine.
It was thrilling to watch the Tour again this year. Congratulations to Lance on victory number 7.
Lance Armstrong embodies the best of professional athletics, there is no doubt. But his example as a human being--whether chasing yellow or not--is what counts.
And while you're at it, give some money to Lance's foundation, livestrong.org.
