Finally disgraced cyclist Floyd Landis thought he could come out and pull his Pete Rose card out and get some sympathy for cheating his game but all he really has done is thrown the entire sport including his former teammate Lance Armstrong under the bus...

Mr. Landis said that Mr. Armstrong’s longtime coach, Johan Bruyneel, introduced Mr. Landis to the use of steroid patches, blood doping and human growth hormone in 2002 and 2003, his first two years on the U.S. Postal Service team. He alleged Mr. Armstrong helped him understand the way the drugs worked. “He and I had lengthy discussions about it on our training rides during which time he also explained to me the evolution of EPO testing and how transfusions were now necessary due to the inconvenience of the new test,” Mr. Landis claimed in the email. He claimed he was instructed by Mr. Bruyneel how to use synthetic EPO and steroids and how to carry out blood transfusions that doping officials wouldn’t be able to detect.

What is it with athletes not accepting responsibility for their own actions this week? At least Hanley Ramirez apologized yesterday both verbally to his teammates and coach and also literally with his bat and his hustle. Listen Floyd Landis: YOU ARE A DOUCHEBAG! Everyone knows you don't go snitching once you have been caught. This isn't going to save your pathetic career. Everyone knows Armstrong used PEDs. You don't just miraculously recover from stage 3 cancer and go on to win 7 consecutive Tour De France races without a little or a lot of help from some PEDs. Some people may have their head buried in the sand on this and think prayer and the grace of God saved him but science proves with Armstrong at least that we can all LIVESTRONG with the help of some drugs and medication. I've already come to the conclusion that Armstrong cheated just like Bonds and McGwire miraculously started hitting 70 HR's in a season. So all you are doing Landis is being the dope. Stop being an asshole and go ride a bike or something.
