Wired to Win: Surviving the Tour de France is now playing at the Omni Theatre!! Check out the movie trailer:

I like Lance Armstrong because he is from Texas, he beat cancer and became a repeat champion. I want to believe he didn’t cheat. I don’t know if he cheated or not – maybe that’s naive, but I really don’t want to believe he cheated, much like I didn’t want to believe Curt Schilling and his bloody sock weren’t cheating while sending the Red Sox to the World Series….There is a new federal investigation into the possible doping of the U.S Postal team and Lance’s Tour de France wins. If you missed the report on 60 Minutes last week, you can catch up here.

(CBS News) Lance Armstrong is among the greatest athletes of all time – an American hero who beat cancer to win the Tour de France, the Super Bowl of cycling, seven times. But now Armstrong is the focus of a federal investigation into performance enhancing drugs. A grand jury in Los Angeles has been hearing secret testimony from some of Armstrong’s former teammates on the U.S. Postal Service team.

One of the prime witnesses is Tyler Hamilton. Under oath, behind closed doors, Hamilton has told a story that may change the history of sports. Over the years, some former teammates have accused Armstrong of doping. But, it’s been said in professional cycling that if Hamilton broke his silence, then the full story of the legendary U.S. Postal Service team would be known.

Watch the story here on 60 Minutes.

    Curtis-
    Cool! I will look at it more later today. Have you rowed yet to reach 20 cal and see how long it takes? (Not trying to be funny, just asking because I’m curious to see what the formula would come up with vs. what you’d do in real life).

    Saw your post yesterday – Cody is in Costa Rica for a month!
