The fallen should stay down

So Lance Armstrong will return to competition in a swimming pool in Austin, Texas soon. (The swimming isn't covered in his doping scandal punishment)

Like I'll say on the PhilCast when I chat about this today, I get it, but I don't get it.

I get the fact that this guy, for whatever reason, is one of these guys that seems to have to prove himself to everyone else over and over again.

He's one of these guys with a chip on his shoulder who feeds on beating others down in competition.
It's something that served him well in his cycling career....well, that and the illegal doping.

The part I don't get is why the need to continue with that attitude at this point in his life? After all the disgrace and shame why not just fade into the background for a long while? I guess because he can't. It's the way he's wired. But after all that has happened I wish he would just go away.

Yeah, bitter, party of one....that's me. But it still stings. How could he have done what he did?
