This has been bugging me for a while...
I was a fan since post-college when I picked up cycling as a past-time. I admired him just so damn much, especially after he beat Cancer.
...But then he left his wife. First "WTF!?" moment.
I tried to discount all of the rumors.
Then he left Sheryl Crow when she was diagnosed with cancer. Second and more profound "WTF!?" moment.
Still, I tried to discount all of the rumors despite his team mates being outed all aroundhim and the reports of bullying
Then he started dating one of the Olsen twins. No words beyond creepy and gross. He's just too old for that.
And now he has come out and - supposedly - admitted to doping. But he did it in the most self-serving, attention-whoring way...an Oprah interview.
She's mostly retired for cripe's sake and thus garners even more
There is just NOTHING redeemable about this jackass. He is a first rate narcissist or worse. I hope people sue the bejeezus out of him, especially
That said...I think all of the corporations that kept giving him endorsement deals should be SOL. They knew
the allegations, gave him
endorsements anyway and reaped the benefits. It's not like they didn't also profit from the lies...
