Now over five days.

Still doesn't mean anything?

In an interview in Paris right after the last stage, a reporter asked Lance if he was going to be tweeting even more now that he's retired and his response was, "No, I don't think so. I think I'm done with that now. I think I have to go away for awhile."

Your guess is as good as mine as to what he meant by that, but clearly the tweets are coming to an end, or so he says.

Can't we just enjoy the silence?
I would be quite happy if I never heard another word. On twitter or TV or Facebook, whatever. Silence is golden, if I didn't have to keep seeing his name everywhere I could begin to believe that it was all just a bad dream.:D

+1 you take the words right out of my mouth ;) memories already beginning to fade... :D

How can you enjoy the silence if you don't realize it is occurring?

You're welcome.

95, I was enjoyng the silence and was hoping to see the Armstrong threads of conspiracy die for the time being. I am so sick of reading, hearing, and seeing things about Armstrong, but you can't seem to let him go. You are constantly starting pointless threads.

aren`t we all at least a BIT curious how the whole story is gonna end? Pure human curiosity ;) I mean, that man goes from hero..to probably zero. Whoever REALLY NEVER wants to hear or read about that guy again, feel free to completely ignore everything about him and pretend he never existed and just grant the entertainment to other people :D

So why are you reading and commenting in these pointless threads?

MY theories on why he has stopped tweeting are:

1 - Can't get 3G cell coverage in a cave in eastern Afghanistan
2 - He forgot to bring his smart phone/pda power adapater on vacation.
3 - He threw his phone/pda at Adam Lim after stage 20, when he finally crapped out that sensor Alan had him swallow a few months ago and it caused a anal fissure.


Seriously, since the Tour was a failure and to preserve his brand, he goes quite for a while, until people forgot that he actually competed in the 2010 tour.

Looks like I have to eat some crow (no pun intended).

Put the crow back in the fridge, 95. I don't care what he tweets or doesn't tweet.

38-BFD with "nothing to hide" is sweating and shaking in his new black jersey...he's got everything to lose.

Clearly the man is just "taking time off to spend time w/ family".

(Just like the US senator caught propositioning dudes in the airport restroom.)

I think Public Strategies represented Larry Craig.

"Wide stance" was absolute genius.

How dare you question my foot position!

Ya. Pretty much a trial.

as much as i'd like to see it, there probably won't be a trial either.

the omerta dies when fed prosecuters question ill prepared cyclists. LA (and other big players) will enter a guilty plea so grand jury testimony is sealed. the gory details will never come out. i predict big fines and short jail terms. public perception will REALLY tank tho. any good LA has done for cycling will be undone and then some by this round of shaming.

completely unsatisfying to haters and fanboys alike!

no doubt busy with off shore accounts:rolleyes: ah the bahamas lovely beaches outside the launders banks:D

After falling so far behind there was no need to take delivery of any amount of EPO so Lance was just depositing the proceeds from 150 missing RS TREKS..

This would be fine by me as long as the next step is the UCI and USA Cycling.

+1

My hope is the current USAC brain trust has to resign because of the whole affair. I'd welcome Les Earnest, Andy Rosen and a few others back to clean up USAC. They would have a whole lot of work to do.

The shenanigans at the UCI must be pretty spectacular considering they've gone totally silent.

What I suspect but don't know happened vis UCI is that it got wind that Interpol is sniffing around. The merely corrupt tend to be more circumspect then. :D

(I mean look at **** Pound asking about how UCI could receive payments from the premiere athlete it was testing. It's beyond bizarre, it's so over the edge.)

Not exactly laying low:

"Denver! Join me & Gov Ritter @ the Capitol 4 an exciting announcement Wed @ 10am. Bring ur bike because we're ALL going for a ride after.."

Maybe he'll send his body double just in case.
