America Forfeits World War II


Turns out Floyd Landis lost his case and has to forfeit his 2006 Tour de France title.

He claims he didn’t use banned performance enhancing drugs while the tests supposedly say otherwise.

We’re really only talking about riding a bike over some hills, right?

When it comes down to it, only Floyd knows the truth.  If he’s honest with himself and didn’t break any rules of the competition, title or not, he still won.

Even if he loaded up on every form of testosterone, growth hormone and all the cans of Red Bull he could find, fact of the matter is, he still came in first place when it counted.

Seems to me that sports are a lot like war:  You do what you have to do to win.

One thought on “America Forfeits World War II

  1. Unless Floyd had a jetpack on his back or a motor on that bike I don’t think he was really cheating.

    Steriods aren’t the equivalent to Underdog’s super energy pill. (Congress doesn’t know this) If they were really magical and people could immediately transform their bodies and performances after 1 shot……..there would be a lot more use.

    I don’t condone cheating. But, I don’t like the attack on steroid users. It is CRIMINAL for an informed adult to choose to take a substance to improve one’s body, performance and increase one’s earning potential. But, it is completely acceptable to be obese and drink excessively – although those 2 characteristics are KNOWN factors in bankrupting health care and thought to be a factor in job performance, divorce and increasing depression/pyschological disorders. I think perhaps a little critical thinking is needed by Congress and many sports governing bodies.
