That's Not a Sport

Back when our son, Richard, was gutting out his 50 mile training rides and racing bicycles for Bucknell in the dead of winter, we often heard this indignant comment about some recreational activity/sport...
"________'s not a sport!"

As Lance Armstrong begins his quest for an unprecedented 6th straight yellow jersey in the Tour de France, a new sports legend has been minted in good old Coney Island.

"I think he has proven, once again, that he is one of the finest athletes of any sport in the world," said Richard Shea, a spokesman for the contest.

I think not.... but you can decide for yourself here.
