Lance Armstrong is getting stripped of his Tour De France titles. It's like Santa stripping off his clothes and it turns out he's a little Jewish boy down the street named Ira Goldstein. It's like getting punched in the stomach and the back at the same time, then are told to run 5 miles in the rain uphill with rabid sharks chasing you. And just for your information, rabid sharks run really fast...much faster than normal sharks. He was found guilty of blood doping, which is like Al Capone being found guilty of tax evasion. But cheating is cheating. His excuse? It's not like he was using performance enhancing drugs...
We expect our heroes to be flawless. So, with that incredible burden...they cheat their image to be greater than they really are in order not to let us down. Sometimes being human and failing is okay. It's empathetic. It's good for us to see our heroes go through the same struggle and every day strife we are going through. Trying your hardest and failing is much more admirable than cheating your fans in order to win.
