Lance is stripped…

The International Cycling Union has officially stripped Lance Armstrong of all 7 of his Tour de France titles (1999-2005).  This comes on the heels of him being dropped by Nike and stepping down as head of his Foundation.  Very sad!!  In spite of this, one cannot take away from him the satisfaction he must feel from all the work he has done to raise money for cancer research.

In tennis news, Roger Federer defeated Germany’s Benjamin Becker to advance to the second round of the Swiss Indoor Tournament in Basel.  Roger is heavily favored to repeat as champion in his hometown tournament, especially with world number 3 Andy Murray dropping out due to a back injury.  Fed has won this event six of the past seven years.  Coverage on Tennis Channel will begin tomorrow at 4:30 pm EST.  Shh. Quiet..Genius at Work!!
