DId I say Paris? I meant New York....
Lance Armstrong reportedly clarified his opinion on the 2012 Olympics yesterday, a day after saying "Paris deserves the Olympics."
Or, in the language of the New York Post:
Lance Armstrong threw up his arms in surrender yesterday and insisted in true weasel fashion that he's really rooting for New York, not Paris, to clinch the 2012 Olympics.
"If I were on the selection committee, I would be rolling for New York City," Armstrong sniveled a day after snubbing his own country when he said in interviews that he wanted Paris to get the Games.
Anybody got a link to the Post photo illustration they mention? They Photoshopped Armstrong "in front of the Arc de Triomphe wearing a beret and clad in a bike jersey decorated with a weasel head and the words, 'Axle of Weasel.' "

I can't find the picture online. I blogged this yesterday after Carol Costello held up the picture on CNN. Then I saw an MSNBC story where they speculated that he was trying to curry favor with the French.

Is it really that important what Lance says about where he thinks the Olympics should be? I could understand if he had mounted an offensive to have them in one place or the other, but I think you guys are taking the answer to a question, just a bit too far.
Let the man ride his bike in peace.
