What the hell are you getting so worked up about. It's not as if you would have won the Tour de France if he did not cheat.

This is the reality of professional sports, most athletes, that need to perform at the level that Armstrong needed to perform at, cheat in one way or another, to get an advantage on their competitors. It just happens to be that he got caught and the others have not been caught yet.

Then again, maybe his cheating involved your wife and/or girlfriend, then it is fully understandable that you got you panties in a knot.
If only closed minds would come with closed mouths.

Ego non sum semper iustus tamen Ego sum nunquam nefas!
