Extra Pine Tar:
Most people saw a bunch of Lance Armstrong DVD’s were available and said to themselves, “Why the hell would anybody ever buy those things? That man is a fraud and a one balled liar. We all know the secrets behind the success and they all came from a lab.”
But Karl Baxter isn’t most people. Karl is a risktaker and a business man, so when he saw that he had the ability to buy Lance Amstrong DVD’s in bulk he decided that the obvious move was to purchase as many as he could afford and sit on them till this whole little issue of Lance lying, cheating and intimidating his way to 7 Tour de France championships blew over.
You see – Karl Baxter is an idiot. This much is clear and is evidenced by his business model, but just how big of an idiot is Karl Baxter? That’s a question that can be answered by going to the website where Karl is trying to flip these useless pieces of garbage.

The panel investigating links between cycling's governing body and Lance Armstrong has postponed its first hearing because of snow in London.
The International Cycling Union's independent commission will now hold its procedural hearing in London on Friday instead of Tuesday.

The two biggest sports stories of the week, Lance Armstorng and Manti Te’o were spoofed on “Saturday Night Live” this week. In a mock interview with “Piers Morgan,” “Lance was asked about his doping and “Manti” was confronted about his dead girlfriend Lennay. Lance was angry and Manti was just dumb. Take a look at the opening.
Given the headlines that dominated media this week, you knew this was coming- more parody of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o. Both stories involve cancer and foundations that raised money for cancer research. Saturday Night Live did an accurate job spoofing Armstrong as an ornery bastard who gets defensive and combative with anyone who accuses...
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. If Anderson never hears Armstrong's voice again...
For whatever reason, we just can’t let this whole Lance Armstrong thing go. We’re not sure if it’s because we feel duped that we somewhat believed all of his claims about not using PEDs over the years, or just because the way he consistently denied and sued the people who even questioned that he may [...]
I find myself looking for reasons to have certain people on the podcast and Denny is one of those people. This time we middled around the Lance Armstrong topic for a bit before getting into some more overarching themes about the Internet, culture, media, etc. A great conversation as always even if it ended up someplace completely different than Lance Armstrong.
Denny’s NYC Marathon...
It would be a dull day in the MMA world without a Chael Sonnen quote. In the aftermath of the Lance Armstrong confession lies a little dispute between the bike riding cheat and the UFC mouth from the South. Here you go:
“Why are they calling him a bully? That’s what I can’t wrap my mind brain around. Lance is a dweeb, the only thing he’s missing is the tape on the glasses...
Bradley Cooper recently told BBC that he would “love” to play Lance Armstrong in a movie about the cycling champion’s life. Cooper told BBC, ”I think he’s fascinating. What a fascinating character.”
Paramount Pictures is already in the works of planning a movie with JJ Abrams’ production company Bad Robot about Armstrong; who has been under much scrutiny as of late...
According to late night talk show host Conan O’Brien, this is the real Lance Armstrong interview by Oprah Winfrey, before it was edited of course.
Saturday Night Live started off their newest episode with a bang. They had a mock interview skit with Piers Morgan interviewing Lance Armstrong, Manti Te’o and Jodie Foster and needless to say, it was hysterical. They portrayed Te’o as a dumb jock when he was asked questions about Lennay Kekua and did a good job of making fun of one of the strangest stories in a long time.[Guyism]
Lost in the shuffle of the NFL's Championship Sunday and college basketball, along with the garbage stories including Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'O, was the return of the National Hockey League(NHL). The NHL started a strike-shortened 48-game regular season on Saturday and to say the fans of hockey forgave and forgot would be an understatement. There were great crowds all...
