A Real American Hero - Lance Armstrong Dan Blaine DBLIVIT blaine@eucom.mil In these days of overpaid, get-away-with-murder "Stars" of our 3 major sports; baseball, basketball and football it is refreshing to see someone come along who can be a role model for our children: Lance Armstrong.

Although bicycling is not a major spectator sport in the US, it sure is in Europe and Armstrong's performance yesterday in the first mountain stage of the Tour de France got a lot of Europeans thinking that maybe America does have some true world class athletes with both great physical and moral strengths.

I don't enjoy watching any of our "big three" sports anymore, because I don't have much respect for a lot of the "stars"....
