Lance: The Time is Now to Be a Real Hero

Certainly, no one–after reading the current articles (like this NY Times piece) where cyclist after cyclist has come out to reveal how Lance (and many others) has been doping for years–can possibly believe that Lance Armstrong is still innocent.

Lance Armstrong is certainly an amazing athlete and a great spokesperson for cancer survivors. Furthermore, his foundation has truly done wondrous things (including funding research benefiting my employer, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center), but the time for denial, intimidation of ex-teammates, and cover up of years of wrongdoing is long past.

It’s time, Lance. Time to “man up” and realize that as much as it hurts to admit wrongdoing that you can do more for the sport, your foundation, and humanity by ending this charade and fessing up.

it’s time, Lance. But the window where you can get out with some semblance of dignity, honor, and a smidgeon of integrity is rapidly closing.

Lance, the time is now.
