  1. It’s funny. I think about how confidence is a huge part of sport success, and how in the male psyche a significant part of confidence is based on desirability. Imagine you knew a kid who had all the potential in the world but lacked confidence due in no small part to incompetence in socializing with their desired mate type. Handing them a fake long distance involvement to break teeth on could easily be viewed as not only harmless but in fact potentially quite constructive, as falsehoods go. And a situation that innocent could easily produce the kind of clusterf@$k Teo seems to be experiencing right now.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m compelled to lean on Occam’s razor too, but I’d give the benefit of the doubt on that particular story.

    You know I love you, and I was with you until you got into the “corporate CEO” propaganda. I think Mr. Obama I the biggest catfish of all. 4 years of nothing except a giant health care program we can’t pay for. And are we really supposed to believe that he and Hillary are best friends. Lets get back to the days that sports was about natural performance and “fantasy” is left to movies and television. I buy your argument for Lance though. As someone who takes care of real cancer patients everyday, he is really hurting a quality organization that focuses on real Survivors.

    This takes me back to our Extemp days. Thanks for carrying the big box!
