Lance deserves a Pharmacy degree based on real life experience alone. No need for university.

I would like to see Phil Liggit held accountable for the stupid things he said attacking USADA an Lance's accusers just a few monthes ago.

Phil is just a harmless old git, really, that was probably on Lance's payroll. They were certainly friends. If you were a friend of Lance's, would you really have acted differently when the word came out? I can't fault him for his loyalty, no matter how misguided that might have been.

i love it. i can take the piss out of a friend of mine who graduated from there. one kind of has to wonder about Tufts' judgment awarding sir-dopes-alot an honorary degree in the first place.

Wow, I haven't seen one of those for about twenty years!!! There were only about 4 people on the internet then, clearly including you, me, and the bloke in Nairobi, California. Who was the other one?

According to that well known reliable source, the Daily Mail, it wasn't a PhD, but a Doctor of Humane Letters.

Nah. No degree earned. Just back pay for serving as a guinea pig in non-clinical trials.
