PR stunt with lots of bounce.

This is a great PR stunt by a terrific singer songwriter. Worth checking out his music, in addition to the story!¬†http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/music/article/1318002–corin-raymond-finances-new-album-with-stacks-of-canadian-tire-money

Lance, the first cut isn’t the deepest

Yes, yes. Armstrong is an amazing athlete, marketer, inspiration and…liar. He only said as much as he need to in this interview, leaving tons of things under the rug still, because he WANTS something – TO COMPETE AGAIN. He’s cautiously selecting the less of two evils. This is not sincere. This is calculated and orchestrated. Of course. He’s running a business now, and is actually doing some smart things in that regard. But, his “business” is based on HIM. And L.A. is not repairing his image or coming clean in a way that will win hearts, but instead in way that wins points – much like the events he’s so smartly won. Glad to hear he won’t testify against other riders. Curious to see who else falls.
