ESPN analyst Rick Reilly is known for defending legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong till the end when it came to doing steroids.  For the last, well, 14 years he's had his back.  Check out the email he sent Rick on Wednesday saying how sorry he was via ESPN.  Try not to cry, it's pretty sad.  Among my emails Wednesday morning, out of the blue, was one from Lance Armstrong. Riles, I'm sorry. All I can say for now but also the most heartfelt thing too. Two very important words. L And my first thought was ... "Two words? That's it?" Two words? For 14 years of defending a man? And in the end, being made to look like a chump?  Hahaha, not sure if I hate Lance more, or Manti Te'o.  That's a tough one.  Both are pieces of crap, both lied, and both made all of us as sports fans look like idiots.  Neither should get honored or ever play again.  Just chumps in every way, shape, and form.  If you want to waste more of your time on Lance, make sure to check out the interview tonight on Oprah.  I won't be though.
