Politics touches all facets of our lives. From our places of worship, the workplace and our entertainment, there doesn’t seem to be a place where the subject of politics doesn’t not reach. Now, that apparently includes our leisure activities.
On Saturday afternoon, disgraced and former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong went to Twitter and bragged about besting Vice President Mike Pence on a bike ride.
I can’t drop many people on a bike these days but I just blew the fuckin’ doors off Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path. Day. Made.

Yes, what a feat a former professional athlete defeating a 60-year-old politician in that athlete’s sport. Armstrong must be proud, this is likely one win that he will not be stripped of later.
However, it is unclear if he was doping at the time or not.
