    So far here's the count of sponsors who've bailed on Armstrong (at least the ones that have been made public): Anheuser-Busch Nike Trek FRS SRAM 24 Hour Fitness Honey Stinger Oakley is awaiting the UCI decision, and the options open to the UCI are becoming fewer quickly.

    I think the UCI's decision is pending Monday.

    After watching LA speech at the Livestrong convention tonight where he even dared quoing Martin Luther King, I am not convinced that LA will never ever confess of doping.

    OK...sopas is out of the dead pool...

    What are the euro book makers putting the odds at for Lance confessing prior to Paddy kicking him to the curb?

    Armstrong quoting MLK is about 9 different kinds of wrong.

    An excellent piece. I can't say this enough: People who are afraid of the truth usually have a lot of explaining to do, and a lot to lose. The truth very rarely hurts the innocent, and needs never to be rationalized by anyone. It is what it is. Paul Kimmage can hold his head high. He never bought into the threats and lies.

    Thanks for the link, Limerickman

    Why not? They both were womanizers, liars and cheaters. Quoting MLK is most appropriate.

    Meh. MLK cheated on his wife for decades. King and his advisors were socialists/commies.

    "King explained his extramarital affairs as "a form of anxiety reduction". Garrow noted that King's promiscuity caused him "painful...guilt"."

    Yeah. Whatever.

    Daniele Nardello is your man, he's probably a 4 time winner by now if the truth is ever known.

    I couldn't care less who the fuck MLK is, nor Lance for that matter.

    True, but unlike the others he doesn't have a smoking gun sitting next to his head....besides the fact he rode for two dirty teams. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

    Lawyers better form a queue behind the SCA & Co.

    For once McQuaid & Co do the right thing.
