Some of his GREAT words < http://sports.yahoo.com/sc/news?slug=ap-tourdefrance&prov=ap&type=lgns >
 

Lance Armstrong said, "I'm finished."

``Vive le Tour, forever,'' Lance said in his parting speech.

'' I'm sorry for you. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles. But this is a hell of a race,'' he said. '' You should believe in these athletes, and you should believe in these people. I'll be a fan of the Tour de France for as long as I live. And there are no secrets -- this is a hard sporting event and hard work wins it.*''

'' I need a period of quiet and peace and privacy,'' he said. '' I've had an unbelievable career. There's no reason to continue. I don't need more. ''

***************************************
Here, at work each of us is saying, "Lance, You're My Hero!"  We're sure that many people say the same words.
