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.

Admitting he cheated was a start. Now, it's all about whether Lance Armstrong is ready to give details - lots of them - to clean up his sport.

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...

Buried in last week's hype of non-existent girlfriends, Lance Armstrong shockingly admitting that the rest of the world was right about him, and the Lakers cursing David Stern while Chris Paul lights up their building was the end of the work stoppage in the NHL. On Saturday, the Kings and the Blackhawks kicked off the abbreviated season with Hawks winning over the defending...
This weekend, Saturday Night Live's opening sketch featured the two biggest sports stories of last week - Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o. Both athletes (and Jodie Foster) were captured on Piers Morgan Tonight talking about the events that saw them dominate the headlines.
