Lance Armstrong and Rick Reilly
Yes, sports writers remain the bottom feeders of the journalistic fish tank. (While there are exceptions, they are the ones who prove the rule.)
Reilly, in his anti-Armstrong column It’s all about the lies, writes that he received an email from Lance which said, “I’m sorry,” and little more.
Reilly goes on to say what a fool he (Reilly, seen at right) was, basically acting as Armstrong’s stenographer. I’m shocked, shocked.
Reilly closes the column with this:
You’re sorry, Lance? No, I’m the one who’s sorry.
I have to disagree with Reilly’s assessment. They’re both sorry.
And per the pre-production meeting, Reilly got it first on Twitter.
