I guess Tyler Hamilton is one of those rare folks whose memory improves with age. Or did an upcoming book he’s writing jog his memory to confess to using banned performance enhancing substances?
I usually stand by 60 Minutes. But in last week’s story on Lance Armstrong there was one brief mention about what could be Hamilton’s motivation. “He’s writing a book.” Four words in the whole 35-minute double length segment.
Hamilton says he kept the secret for 14 years. And now he miraculously recalls in precise detail every time he used banned substances with Lance Armstrong? What was scarier about the 60 minutes report was the implication that everyone did it. So I guess by the time they strip all the medals one by one, I figure I’m in line for the gold.
The most ironic thing in all this? The commercial on the broadcast for the performance enhancing drug–Viagra.
