The One E-mail That Wasn't Insulting


"I'm greatly disappointed by the lack of attention on the return of Lance Armstrong. He won seven Tour de Frances. A team of football players can only win six championships and Lance had more in a row. Armstrong has done more with one testicle then you or I do with three."

—Mike (Lightning) Liegey

I'm with you, Lightning. I feel ashamed of the paltry few things I've done with three testicles. You'd think I'd have shown more courage and guts with three. Or that perhaps I'd have donated one to the needy. Or perhaps fathered an extra half of a family. But no, I spent all those years in the circus—and for what? Just a paycheck and one flaming romance with the three-breasted woman. You're right. I'll write more about Lance.
