Interesting article, but not surprising. If I had to put my finger on why I dislike Ironman, and the WTC, it would be because they have a somewhat similar attitude towards the people who support them. They make fun of them, act above it all, yet convince them that their circus is all about love and good feelings. It's been worse since they started hanging out with Lance Armstrong. How lost are people to buy into their crap. To listen to them wax poetic about myths, gods, and being a part of something bigger than themselves is almost comical. If they could only see that they're pawns in a giant money making scheme that culminates in a freaky week long retreat to Kona.
Not to thread jack, but feeding on people's good nature is disturbing. How many times does Lance have to do it before it stops working? Krikey, if you have thirty five thousand dollars to throw around, give it to a local charity, or hospital.
