Lance Armstrong is as ugly as sin, and was schooled by Oprah to boot.

Here in Austin you never hear anything good about him, which is surprising. He accomplished a lot and usually you hear at least one story about local celebs being nice or buying a round of drinks. Nada. He’s the exactopposite of Matthew Mcconaughey, who is loved by locals. Lance is only known to be a massive self-important asshole In public, both before and after the scandal. What you see is what you get. He embodies the phrase, “it’s lonely at the top”. But that’s in his head. For a lot of people, he’s at the bottom. I suspect he has some degree of antisocial personality disorder which was probably instrumental in his success, as it is to many successful businessmen.

He’s a dirty lying skank.

Could never stand this guy, even when he was popular. So full of himself. An insufferable narcissist.

Great movie about the sandal was The Program from 2015. The lengths this asshole went to and the people he damaged along the way was mind-blowing. The movie is a fascinating study of how people will continue to believe in someone/something even when faced with evidence to the contrary.

Reminds me of that Theranos documentary and how all those old white board members would not give up on Elizabeth Holmes even as the evidence stacked up against her.

^^ sandal = scandal. I hate this autocorrect, Muriel!

He got the scrotum he deserved.

He's a complete sociopath.

by Anonymousreply 905/23/2020

I think he probably is a sociopath like Michael Jordan ...but it seems that doping was ever prevalent in cycling

by Anonymousreply 1005/27/2020

He's definitely a narcissist sociopath..feel bad for his family.

I always hated this guy. He is always seemed like a douche

by Anonymousreply 1208/08/2020

Did he dope so much that the drugs caused cancer in one of his balls? Deplorable.

R2 is correct, even before the scandal, the consensus among Austinites who’d met Armstrong was that he was a self-important asshole.

I used to go to a 24 Hour Fitness gym near UT Austin that was dedicated to and named for Lance. As soon as the scandal broke, all of his memorabilia was removed and the gym just became a standard 24 Hour Fitness.

He's like a billionare now. He invested in some company-- I think Uber --- And when it went public he hit the lottery! Another reason to hate him.

by Anonymousreply 1508/08/2020

Isn't McCounaghey friends with him? (I can't spell that gaelic nonsense and I'm not looking it up. ...or up at the thread. I'm hungover and lazy. And, yes, Irish.)

by Anonymousreply 1608/08/2020

I can't get too worked up about a boy-man who got famous for riding a bicycle and cheating. The media made him and the media destroyed him - he isn't particularly interesting save for being a "hero" who's also a colossal asshole. Any inside dirt on Lance and Sheryl Crow? Didn't he break her heart?

by Anonymousreply 1708/08/2020

He's like an overgrown frat boy

by Anonymousreply 1808/08/2020

Iain Glen from GoT could play him.

R16, Armstrong and McConaughey certainly have been friends. Not sure if they still are.

by Anonymousreply 2008/08/2020

Not a fan.

by Anonymousreply 2108/08/2020

No. The face he deserves is a face bashed in with a baseball bat....

His son is now accused of allegedly raping a 16 year old when he was 18.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Thursday at 9:23 AM

He was an arrogant jerk well before the cancer diagnosis and winning the TDF. He went over to Europe and thought he was god's gift to cycling even while failing to finish the TDF. I couldn't believe it when people really believed he was winning the TDF clean. Yeah, sure, he discovered if you pedal easier and faster, you can win the TDF. He never fell from grace for me, because I never put him on a pedestal in the first place.

Fuck him. I had an instant dislike when I found out he went bike riding with war criminal George W Bush (yes, I know we're supposed to like Bush now that Trump was exponentially worse, but he is still a war criminal). It was no shock to hear a few years later that he'd cheated all along with doping. Typical Republican ways--cheat and win at all costs. Enjoy your retirement being hated by everyone, Lance!

by Anonymousreply 25Last Thursday at 9:45 AM

He always had that mean-looking face. I never looked at him as a hero, even before the doping scandal, etc. When his book about fighting cancer came out, one of my dumb relatives was reading it, and I said pfft. Relative said: "We need all kinds of heroes."

by Anonymousreply 26Last Thursday at 9:52 AM

R4 that story made me sort of sad. Whatever he is, he's not a happy person and never has been. People who are angry like that are responding to fear.
