The icon and the iconoclast

the secret raceBarry Bonds was an icon. Mark McGwire was an icon. Roger Clemens was an icon. And yes, Lance Armstrong was an icon.

But regarding Armstrong, Tyler Hamilton is an iconoclast.

And there is an apparent lesson that Harvard can teach us: if you’re not cheating, you’re not trying hard enough. With Harvard, it would appear the most difficult part is getting in and the next-most difficult part is not getting caught.

I think we may need to more fully ponder the distinctions between live strong and live well.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
