With Lance Armstrong’s confession to Oprah, sports and news networks have detestably slandered one of the greatest philanthropists and fundraisers of our time.
For years now, Lance has been fighting off rumors spawned by the smelly and gossiping French that he took performance-enhancement drugs during his career. Now that he’s confessed, it could mean he would have to relinquish most of, if not all, his trophies.
To the people who are disturbed by Lance Armstrong right now, I say to you: Unless you have raised millions of dollars for a noble cause, Lance doesn’t owe you an apology.
If you had the opportunity to cure thousands of sick people and the one sacrifice you had to make was taking a needle to your ass once in a while, wouldn’t you do it…?
Most who are opposed to PEDs are those who have never had to workout 300 days a year, like top athletes. PEDs makes for better sports. It makes our athletes bigger, stronger, more durable, and their careers last longer. Imagine if a guy like Larry Bird used PEDs? Perhaps he could’ve saved his back and extended his career through the late 1990s. The whole league would be thankful.
Did you realize that Lance and Manti Te’o got more media coverage this week than the hostage situation in Algeria? What is with this society’s obsession with celebrities? First we laud their accomplishments and boost their egos throughout their entire career, then we berate them for catchy headlines and stories. And we always welcome them back with open arms as long as they suffer publicly.
Right now, America is enjoying the suffering of Lance Armstrong. And much of the public wants Lance to be punished before they even think about forgiving him.
This Jew right here has no need to forgive Lance. In fact, anyone that is in support of cancer research should be falling to their knees and kissing his feet for the amount of work he’s done. Many cancer survivors wouldn’t be alive today were it not for him.
If athletes have to go through this much trouble for a PED confession, then I want Work-Enhancing Drugs to be banned from the workplace. Everyday employees should no longer be allowed to take substances like coffee, 5-Hour Energy, Red Bull and donuts. It’s cheating if the only reason you’re awake is because of caffeine and sugar. Natural sleep should be the only legal way people gain energy. Get this proposal to Obama’s desk immediately.
All kidding aside, I tell you again: If you haven’t raised millions of dollars for a cause, then keep your worthless, negative opinion about Lance to yourself. The end justifies the means. Because of PEDs, Lance generated millions for cancer research. All the losers attempting to slander his career are like pimples to a cancer patient; they just want to pop them.
Even after suffering from testicular cancer, Lance has more balls than 99.9% of the entire world. How many lives has your fundraiser saved…? Lance will sleep easy knowing his work has saved kids like this:
