Sports Flash! Famous Athlete To Race For Third World Country!
Why is Borat smiling today? He is “very excite” to hear that famous Texan cyclist, Lance Armstrong, has chosen to race for Team Astana in Kazakhstan for his comeback to the sport. This is seemingly a big deal for Kazakhstan since the rest of planet Earth only knows what Borat has told us about their country. Now, they can export potassium and have the most successful cyclist-womanizer combo ever.
In all seriousness, why the hell would Armstrong do this? Yes, the article says his former coach is the coach of this team but who cares? If Phil Jackson coached in Europe, would Shaq fly over there immediately? Nope. I’m not trying to be an American snob here but this guy should not be turning his back on American cycling, even if it isn’t as highly regarded as the European teams.
Of course, this is something we should be used to regarding Armstrong. He has been turning his back on numerous things (his now ex-wife, Sheryl Crow, Richardson Bike Club) for about 20 years now.
