 "I guess I should forgive him. I guess I should give him credit for putting himself through worldwide shame. I guess I should thank him for finally admitting his whole magnificent castle was built on sand and syringes and suckers like me. But I'm not quite ready. Give me 14 years, maybe." -Rick Reilly

Oh, the life of Reilly!

Here is a must read by acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly on his decades-long belief in the integrity of the now-disgraced Lance Armstrong. Reilly, like many, believed Armstrong when he said, "I've never used PEDs" and even became a staunch supporter of the now-admitted con-artist.

Oh and yes, Reilly was the author of the 2002 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year article, which was given to, ahem, Lance Armstrong.

Do what's right SI and strip Armstrong of the honor. Do it for Reilly!
