Lance Armstrong won his seventh Tour de France in a row yesterday. It is truly an unbelievable achievement. He survived a battle with cancer and worked his ass off and became a living legend and maybe one of the greatest sports stories ever.
But have you heard why he is retiring?
He hasn't seen his kids grow up. He misses them. And they miss him.
So which is better? A plain, run of the mill dad who works every day then comes home to read to his children every night and play with them or a star athlete who has decided to train and compete in a sporting event rather than have his time taken up with the kids?
I know the answer.
