an easy google, if you do not know what it is... my idea follows a similar vein - we can talk about doping / not getting caught doing it / riding so far above your previous best in one season that it's freaking suspicious / etc until Lance Armstrong is mentioned, then the discussion ends. :-D


Now that I've typed it, it doesn't seem half as clever as when I first thought of it.

...

Looks around nervously.

...

Crickets chirp.

...

GO CADEL!!

I'm sorry, but since you just compared Armstrong to Hitler (sort of :p) this thread is now officially dead and you've lost the discussion.

Pow, nailed it!

Three. I am assuming you added Hitler to the list. He followed in the steps of a short Frenchman who had the gall to march his army to Russia only to be stamped into the frozen ground.

So for the record there are three infamous Uniballers.
