Found January 20, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports: Yardbarker Blogger Network
Lance Armstrong may have his sympathizers, but those operating Manly Library in New South Wales, Australia, are not among them. Holly Byrnes, a News Limited national TV writer, shared a photo on Twitter Sunday of a sign posted in the library that pokes fun at the cyclist. The sign informs guests that “all non-fiction Lance Armstrong books … will soon be moved to the fiction section.” While some may be willing to forgive Armstrong now that he confessed to Oprah Winfrey that he doped and used steroids throughout his cycling career, the library is doing its part to remind everyone of how much of a liar he is. Those books glorifying Armstrong are as much of a fairy tale as Lennay Kekua and should be treated as such.

First shunned, then vilified by Lance Armstrong, Mike Anderson had to move to the other side of the world to get his life back. Now running a bike shop outside of Wellington, New Zealand, Armstrong's former assistant watched news reports about his former boss confessing to performance-enhancing drug use with only mild interest.

Next Up On The Apology Tour: The NHL

Time was better spent eating a homemade dinner* and watching the season premiere of Archer and college basketball than watching Lance Armstrong pathologically mouth the right words but show no remorse and engage in an absurd attempt at a semantics lesson. Apparently this interview needed a level-headed lawyer type like Nancy Grace. It looks like we’re not going to hear from Manti...

The NHL Returns: Reasons To Not Care
