Two Strong

Neil Armstrong died Saturday.

Lance Armstrong, in a sense, did too.

I’m still trying to sort out my feelings on performance enhancing drugs (“PEDs”) and why we might convict certain individuals in the court of public opinion over them and not others.

That aside, both Armstrongs refused to be ordinary or aim too low. In that sense, even Lance is still to be admired. Sometimes we drive too fast or too close to the sun, for sure. But, I think I’d rather be at the ethical limits of life chasing something extraordinary than self-righteously sitting on my couch at home.

So if the trapezoids of this site look too wide or its neck to thick, you won’t have to guess. I’m blood doping the blong. Live strong.
