Quote of the Day

Facing a 19 mile, 4,000 foot climb up Mt. Hamilton near San Jose, as I did on Memorial Day, plodders like me will think of Lance. An image of Lance in full grimace will come into our heads. Because Lance suffered to become the greatest Tour de France rider in history, and suffered before that to defeat a cancer that had gone into his brain and lungs, and suffered still more as a youth in a single-mom home, well, maybe we can suffer some, too.

Lance made suffering cool. Lance is like a secular Jesus. His suffering and ultimate triumph gives hope. -- Rich Karlgaard
