Hagiography (A-Z Day 8)

All the good Armstrong has done has been facilitated and funded by his 7 Tour victories. All the money he has earned as a celebrity-spokesman and high-dollar speaker originated in Paris. Every yellow wristband sold, and every dollar donated to Livestrong is French.

Futurition (A-Z Day 6)

Cycling is bigger than Lance Armstrong. If he understood that, maybe he’d be willing to give up his celebrity to try to heal a sport that is deathly ill.

Bionomics (A-Z Day 2)
