Lance Armstrong

Used to be, "yellow streak" was a derogatory term; but the sight of Lance's sunbright shirt whizzing by is nothing but joyfully edifying to Austinites who gather by the hundreds to cheer this hometown boy onward. He's done it again, taken the Tour de France, and no "Ooops!" involved - because this time all the world's top competitors were racing against him. Have you seen this fiercely dedicated man on a bike, up close and personal, when he really gets going? It's a wonder his surname's not "Legstrong," instead.
