Lance goes out in style- not winning, but showing true class.
Sure Lance Armstrong would have loved winning another Tour de France title. Coming into Paris, amid the flowers and fanfare.
But really, seven tour titles is enough and seven is a magicial number. He's up in the high country of athletic accomplishments - EVER. Up with Babe Ruth, Jack Nicklaus and other heroes.
I think Lance had an eye-opening tour this year and it was good for his soul. His 38-year-old legs could not keep up with youngsters any more, but you know what. That's all right.
Lance went out like a champion, a proud teammate, someone you can depend on.
Armstrong can peddle off into the sunset with his head held high and off to his next endeavor.
He's a true role model from where I sit.
I keep thinking of the John Lennon song "Wheels"
I just had to let it go.
