Like you I have very little respect for him but I'm not into hero worship to begin with. I never thought he was anything more than a good bicycler and I don't rate that skill very high in society
A sport with a culture of PEDs use where one of its greatest athletes ever can parlay that into raising millions of dollars for charity is better for society than a version of the sport that brands itself as clean and nobody cares about it except some French people for a few weeks out of the year.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
