    Lance Armstrong's record setting seventh Tour de France
    victory, along with his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by
    what could turn out to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time.
    Armstrong is being quizzed by French police after three banned substances
    were found in his South France hotel room while on vacation after winning
    the 2005 Tour de France.

    The three substances found were toothpaste, deodorant, and soap
    which have been banned by French authorities for over 75 years.

    Armstrong's girlfriend, American rocker Sheryl Crowe, is quoted
    as saying "We use them every day in America, so we naturally thought they'd
    be ok throughout Europe."

    Along with these three banned substances, French authorities
    also physically searched Armstrong and found several other interesting
    items that they had never seen before, including a backbone and a testicle.

    I can't believe you posted this on a site which is visited by all nationalities including French. Talk about non PC! Perhaps you ought to think again........that is assuming you thought the first time.

    Very Very funny - Brilliant!

    Don't worry about any silly politically correct nonsense: funny is funny.

    No one gets it worse here than American politicians so everyone is fair game.

    Ha !

    Still at war, Huh ? ...



    But seriously, I really don’t like that polemic, and the way it has been exploited.

    To publish some old evidences that way, with no possibility to prove them by a legal mean doesn’t smell the parfum, I agree with that.

    I still don’t understand how we can exhume an old test like that with the help of a private laboratory...

    And why now ?...

    Anyway he was clean after that...

    So what ? An old test and no legal suits ?



    There are more questions than answers in that story.


    I strongly disapprove those methods, and it gives a bad image of my country.


    It’s rude and useless. (Except maybe for the news-paper which pops the ‘scoop’ out...)

    Yeah - gotta agree with that. I can naturally see the funny side of this. I've said it before - politicians are one thing - the people are quite another.

    One of the most civilized countries I've ever been to - far more civilized than Great Britain ever was, or will be.

    And the women.........
