Fantasy comparisons are nice, but life is in real time. Maybe not: maybe for you it’s all case studies.

How many of the Tailwind people worked in stocks and shares? Which one was it is supposed to have made a fortune for Verbruggen in return for the backdated prescription? Funny how those who need LA to be down to peanuts forget all about this...


no need.

Someone blogged and it is not someone with no life experience either.

But pedantics needs apart.... :rolleyes:


I've said all along, Wonderboy has probably been transferring millions offshore into offshore accounts, he's certainly not stupid money wise. This entire situation has allowed him enough time to conveniently "misplace" millions elsewhere, he knew exactly what he was doing.

Who cares what Armstrong does with his money ? It's not our concern.

:D :lol: Apparently, MANY do. You're posting in a thread about Wonderboy, some 740 pages in.

Downing shots in Miami? Scandalous. Probably some exposed arms and backs in the place as well. Legs maybe.

Not sure where I left my bonnet and knitting.....

Maybe there’s a website where you can get yourself sent a personalized “I’m sorry” ecard.

Gotta wait for the hospital room story though. Keep hope alive brother.

I'll open Dirty's Savings and Loans because I promise, it' "a bank." I'll accept deposits under the premise I'm running "a bank." Even the regulator for "Dirty S&L" confirms I'm "a bank." I will tell the world I run the best bank and it's a real bank for years and litigate anyone who dare suggest I'm not running a bank.

Then I'll close Dirty S&L and keep the money. And then I'll have an interview with Oprah Winfrey and tell the world I was never running a real bank, never had any intention of running a real bank.

It looked like a bank. Accepted deposits like a bank. Yet closed and took your money. I can keep your money, right?

I have to figure out how to make such a fraudulent enterprise. Yaco will give me money.

Conveniently enjoying the sausage while deliberately forgetting its provenance...

Lance is just one more ingredient in the professional cycling experience. He's not even as unsavory as Saiz or Ferrari.

Has anyone else been listening to this idiot’s podcast? Mrs 42x16ss had the latest one on the other day and Lance was ranting about how QS have achieved their goals for the year and will only be pack fill for the rest of the season...

I damn near smashed something. Hopefully Viviani keeps it up in the sprints, and I’m now supporting Jungels to win the Tour just so Armstrong has to admit he’s ****ed in the head.

Which we've known for years and he won't admit to

They were highly intelligent about their doping, and the whole team was laser-focused on peaking for the Tour only.

The discussion of lactate threshold was extremely interesting, pointing out that Lance's threshold was remarkably high, while other athletes, like Phelps have a really low lactate threshold because they can clear the stuff so efficiently.

Also points out how it is healthier to ride the Tour with steroids, than to ride without.

No autograph seekers? None of the other fans asking for selfies?

It's too bad Cookson isn't there. He can always be counted on for a selfie.
