Live Strong…

I was only 3 years old when I watched ET with his bike flying across the moon. I was so amazed and tried it myself only I ended up in a canal outside our small second floor house. I have to be admitted to the hospital and be given a treatment because blood was rushing over from my mouth and lost all my front teeth. Ouch i promise myself never to touch a bicycle and while everyone has a good memory on the Classic ET I had some trouble watching that said movie. I was just glad that it was about 20 plus years ago and what has been missing are now growing quite okay. Hehehe

Lance Armstrong was the athlete of the year in 2002 and won the Tour de France for seven consecutive times out classing Miguel Indurain, Bernard Hinault, Eddy Merckx and Jacques Anquetil.

He was the truest inspirational athlete because while having that done he had to undergo a germ cell tumor and a testicular cancer in 1996 before capturing the golden feat in tour de France from 1999-2005. I remember one time while I was watching ESPN he was asked what makes him successful. Lance told them about determination and hard work. Even on Christmas day or New Years Eve his out on the field with his bike.

He wanted to prove to everyone that having gone such a traumatic sickness does not hinder us to achieve greatness and greatness it is for Lance.

Have you seen the famous Yellow Baller id or band? Well he and Nike made that concept helping his charity foundation with a tag which goes “Live Strong” and earned 60 whooping million dollars in a fight for cancer. He retired but we seldom see an athlete like him… not in this generation or maybe generations to come.

We are just lucky we live in this era. And as for me i’ve learned to master my fear and happy watching ET again. Geez I just notice Drew Barrymore was in that movie…

    Lance Pharmstrong is a Nike endorsed liar, drug cheat and fraud. Lie to Cancer patients in order to better sell sneakers, chemo drugs and mutual funds.

    The Pharmstrong liar legacy of doping and empty denials are worldclass as is his myth.

    Beside doping to the moon pre-cancer, Armstrong flunked seven (7) drugs tests (EPO and corticosteroids in 1999 alone) In 2000, Jeff Spencer was filmed dumping USPO medical waste into a Maritime Alp dumpster; insulin, cow blood Actovegin, 160 spent syringes, IV hoses, plasma bags. Pharmstrong later admitted the medical waste on his website (December 2000).

    In addition to Lance’s numerous drug test failures, his teammates have confessed and/or were drug busted themselves:

    1) Frankie Andreu (confessing to EPO injections in the 1999 TDF, DQing the Armstrong win)
    2) Benoit Joachim (Deca Durabolin injection in 2000, rode the 2000 TDF anyway)
    3) Stephen Swartz (EPO confessions from 1995, Armstrong insisted on EPO)
    4) Roberto Heras (EPO bust in 2005)
    5) Tyler Hamilton (blood transfusions oi 2004)
    6) Pavel Padrnos (arrested in 2001 with insuin, EPO, steroids, hGH, corticoids)
    7) Manuel Beltran (EPO & corticosteroids in 1999 TDF)
    8) Floyd Roid Landis (exogenous testosterone in 2006)
    9) Michele Ferrari, MD (convicted of illegal pharmacy & fraud 2004)

    LIVE WRONG is what Nike and Lance are all about. Cheat to win! Lie and dope.

    Better find another drug cheat to celebrate. This Nike ceiling poster is tattered.

    thanks for that info… although those things really happened in sports but i guess making money out of charity is really a bad thing to do. But who are we to judge… oh well only GOd can tell… God bless and have a nice day

  3. Frankie says:

    I can judge very easily. Nike is whoilly corrupt. Fraud = money from deception.

    Lance is a product of a poor family, no supervision, except by steroid dealers at the Olympic Training Camp in Colorado Springs.

    Did you also know that four of his U-23 teammates sued USCF for doping them PRIOR to age 18?????

    Greg Strock got sick too (auto immune)
    Erich Kaiter got sick too (chrons colitis)
    David Francis, not yet sick
    Gerrik Latta, not yet sick
    Ernie Lechuga, testicular Cancer
    Lance, testicular Cancer

    The Sally Jenkins (Washington Post fraud) biography was a big fat lie. A marketing piece for Nike and monster media revenues.

    LIVE WRONG! Nike, Lance and Sally all do too.

    Armstrong admitted steroid and blood doping crimes to:

    Emma O’Reilly

    Stephanie Mcllvain
    his Cancer doctors
    Jonathan Vaughters
    Frankie Andreu
    Betsy Andreu
    Stephen Swartz
    Roid Randis

  5. I think Nike’s are going to the retro look now for the more casual crowd. Their athletic line is ugly, but I like the retro looking ones.
