Lance Armstrong Apparently Runs Boston, Shoots Hoops

You would think a guy who has undoubtedly spent an average of 4 hours a day in spandex would not be so bashful with the traditional short shorts of marathoners. You would be wrong.

When asked about the untraditional bottoms after the race, Lance quipped, "I ain't wearin' on that fruity shit. Who do I look like,
Larry Bird?"

Also curious about Lance's marathon experience was the finishing tape that he ran through despite not winning the race. Some in the running community were confused/outraged about the presence of said tape for the 496th finisher.

What those people don't understand is that Boston brings out a special finishing tape for the 496th finisher every year because 496 is one of the few perfect numbers and, let's face it, those smug Bostonians think they are way more perfecter than everyone else.
