Lance Armstrong doing his best Brett Favre impression? has the scoop on Lance Armstrong admitting that he might not compete now in next summer’s Tour de France.

Lance Armstrong/Brett FavreIt appears the ante has been upped in the Attention-Hounding Semi-Retired Waffling Athletic Idol competition between geezers Lance Armstrong and Brett Favre.


“There are still doubts for the Tour. Everyone knows its importance, but the problems that I have with the organizers, journalists and fans could distract me from my mission — focusing the world’s attention on the battle against cancer,” Armstrong said.

This almost certainly is a parry to the thrust of Brett Favre’s latest PR move, calling Tony Romo about his broken finger, and then telling the world about the phone call, reminding us what an iron man he has been over the years. Favre, who spent the last several NFL offseasons wavering about his retirement status before finally retiring in 2008, then finally finally unretiring and then finally finally finally forcing a trade to the Jets, must now consider his response to the seven-time TdF champion.

Some possible strategies for Favre to increase his media exposure:
· Reality show, “Favrer of Love“
· Game show, “Are You Havin’ More Fun Than a 5th Grader?“
· Insprirational book, “Chicken Soup For the Gunslinger’s Soul“
· Sitcom, “Madden ’bout You“

I’m setting the over/under on Lance Armstrong backing in and out of next summer’s Tour de France at 487. Just to be clear, you’re wagering on how many times Armstrong tells the media that he’s either in or out of the Tour. I’m going with the over.
