  • Lance Armstrong may be stripped of his latest Tour de France title!

    CNN is reporting that Lance Armstrong may be stripped of his 6th Tour de France title.

    In a random check for banned substances, 3 were found in Armstrong's hotel room.

    The 3 substances banned by the French, that were found in his hotel room were as follows:

    (1) Toothpaste
    (2) Deodorant
    (3) Soap

    The French officials also found several other items which they had never seen before including a testicle and a backbone...

      Re: Lance Armstrong may be stripped of his latest Tour de France title!

      A few years ago I read "The Guns of August", Barbara Tuchman's history of the start of WWI. There is a discussion about the French military's decision to switch from their colorful battle dress to something more suitable for modern combat. My father-in-law has the book now so I can't quote it but I did find this passage on the web:

      At the outbreak of World War I, the French infantry used to dress in red pants and blue coats. When it became apparent that they going to fight another war with Germany, some of the younger officers tried to convince the army command to give the troops a camouflage uniform so they wouldn't stand out quite so much on the battlefield.

      But the high command wouldn't hear of it. For almost a century, French soldiers had taken the field in red and blue. It wasn't gallant or courageous to try to blend into the background. It would be bad for morale to teach soldiers to hide. One of the generals went so far as to say that "Le pantelon rouge, c'est France!" The red pants are France.

      And so when the war began, the French charged onto the battlefield dressed like songbirds, a perfect target for the German machine gunners. After one of the early battles, a member of the high command overlooked a field covered with red and blue corpses. With tears running down his face he said, "This is how God teaches kings!"

      So now I think "Le pantelon rouge, c'est France" every time I see J.C. yammer on about this or that. The red pants are France, my friends.

      (oddly enough the source for the above might be relevant to another thread, but I won't get into that here ;) - http://members.macconnect.com/users/...s/SerFeb3.html)

            The red pants are France, huh? I understand that in the past, militaries used red uniforms to disguise the blood so that when someone was injured it wouldn't alarm his brethren with any brightly contrasting colors.

            Rumor is that the French are thinking about changing the color of their trousers to brown for a very similar reason...

                  Correct me if I am wrong but...

                  Lance Armstrong has never failed a drug test. The only "doping" is an accusation from a French rider who wrote a book with these allegations...

                    That's my understanding. Pretty sure he's never failed a drug test, but that's probably just because he's an American and the French don't want to rock the boat.

                      Sorry Leejo but that's rediculous. The international cycling governing body and the Tour organisers are far more concerned with the integrity of their sport than "rocking America's boat."

                      Which rider has accused Armstrong of doping?

                      It is a fact that doping is still going on. Britain's only hope David Miller missed the tour this year and will miss the Olympics because he was caught doing it.

                            My wit is just a bit too dry for your lot I guess. ;)

                            Maybe if we played a little Benny Hill music or if I concluded a post with "say no more say no more" y'all get it better. :D
