Letter to S.I. Regarding Lance Armstrong

Re: Scorecard/"Finished," September 3, 2012 Issue

Dear Editor,

Bravo on your recent article, "Finished," which very neatly wraps up the Lance Armstrong doping scandal fairly and with perfect pitch.  60% of those surveyed not believing Armstrong is guilty, despite USADA's stockpile of damning testimony staring him in the face, serves as an apt illustration of an instance in which passion for sports heroes can be a bad thing.  Indeed, it is inarguable that if Armstrong was not concerned about being officially exposed by a guilty verdict, his stance would be, "Let's go to court, so I can spank your ass right out in the open."  I know mine would be, whether I had a personal dynasty at stake or not.

Best Regards,
J.Paul Zoccali
