Lance Armstrong: So What?

So, Lance Armstrong will be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from cycling for life.  Big yawn.

Armstrong has no intentions of challenging the doping allegations brought forth by the USADA.  Why? We think because he has no intention of competing in cycling again and those Tour de France titles being stripped have no effect on what he has accomplished in the past.

Armstrong has made his money off the Tour championships.  He is now more well known for surviving cancer and his Livestrong campaign.  What the hell does he care?

On a side note, as the most tested athlete ever, he has never failed a drug test.  So there's that.

I don't know the full story, but if there is evidence, what transpires brings to mind some Pat Benatar lyrics from the 80s:  "It's a little too little, just a little too late."

Besides, he beat cancer on PEDs? Sounds more like an endorsement opportunity.

Big headlines, non-story.
