Around 25 years ago, I was racing bicycles in Southern California. It was mostly local club races and I enjoyed training rides with teammates. We began hearing stories of a talented junior (under 18) in Texas. He had gifts, but tended to be so relentlessly competitive that he wanted to lead a race from start to finish, which often is not the best strategy. That young Texan turned out to be Lance Armstrong.
“I realize the purpose of the ‘Vent’ column is to entertain with quirky, off-the-cuff, sometimes biased and unsolicited items.

When scandalous tales of fraud involving superstar athletes Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o were exposed in the last week, connections to films were immediate and obvious. The story of Notre Dame Football hero Te'o falling for a fake dead girlfriend on the Internet called to mind the documentary "Catfish."

“We’ve cut off the head of the snake. This definitely makes it a lot harder for our children and residents to get drugs.

“What the heck has happened to ‘Los Suns’? They have become ‘Los Losers’ week after week since they came back. Some of these guys are getting old enough to qualify for one of those Medicare paid-for electric scooters. Maybe an oxygen station benchside might help. Remember what Steve Nash said when the lockout ended: ‘This is a playoff team.’ Well it’s sure looking like a ‘Kiss-Off Team’ right now.”
