How bad of a year is Lance Armstrong having? If losing his Tour de France titles, sponsorship dollars and his reputation wasn’t bad enough, the ultimate low for the Texan is being called the 2012 “Turkey of the Year” by an Austin, Texas bar.
The Flying Saucer bar celebrated Thanksgiving Eve with these pint glasses featuring the lovely “Lie Strong” logo. The Saucer Twitter account – @FlyingSaucerAus – promised that the glasses would sellout on Wednesday so it’s highly likely you won’t be getting a microbrew in one of these collector items.
As if the front of the glass isn’t cool enough, this is on the other side.
Sidenote: Armstrong resides in Austin.
The same promotion is also running this week at Flying Saucer Memphis. It’s unclear if any glasses remain. Your mileage may vary.
