i'm fearing the worst with the landis accusations. damn i remember when landis won the tour, it was such a cool story for a guy who had to race in sweatpants (religious reasons) in the past won it... but it was all for naught. lot of the great americans seem to be damaged goods: lemond - victim of molestation/near death experience hamilton - mental illness landis - looking to be mentally ill armstrong - probably has a mental disorder that works to his training/competitive advantage. the thing with armstrong is that is seems like a roger clemens situation where he's being given the benefit of the doubt to the very end... i really want to believe armstrong is clean.
