Commentary: Yellow remains a part of wardrobe; Livestrong

Make no mistake, yellow will remain a part of my wardrobe. Perhaps even more than before.

I sought it out Friday morning as a show of support for someone I admire.

I'll make it clear: Lance Armstrong is a modern-day hero, USADA a shameless bully.

I've already told the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency how I feel and I'm even more convinced now.

When Armstrong on Thursday said he's throwing in the towel in the non-stop witchhunt, USADA Chief Bully travis Tygart responded with glee. His words were more akin to a kid in a candy store, and he couldn't wait to kick Armstrong in the teeth just one more time.

He even scolded the International Cycling Union, telling them they had no choice but to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles.

I cry foul. Who does Tygart think he is? No one died and made him king.

USADA's complaint against Armstrong was ultra-weak, and yes I read it. I could make stronger allegations against my cat for doping in the TDF.

And as I looked through USADA's website to see where its authority lies, all I could find was the Olympics.

No offense folks, TDF and professional cycling are not the Olympics.

Tygart and his crybaby comrades just couldn't stand it that they couldn't find any evidence against Armstrong, no matter the investigation by federal prosecutors. Even going into a grand jury didn't produce anything, other than a federal violation when prosecutors passed along the information and flimsy evidence to USADA.

Actually, I don't blame Armstrong for throwing in the towel.

Every time he's beat one allegation, a new one surfaces. And the process starts over.

And over. And over.

Armstrong might be pompous, the type of guy you'd just love to hate.

But he was an outstanding cyclist. He is a brilliant guiding light for how people should treat others. His Livestrong Foundation with its yellow trademark has done remarkable things.

We all should hope for many more like him. And fewer spiteful Tygarts.

Livestrong Lance, we won't abandon you.
