Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong has announced his Retirement. If only his fans would now retire their damn yellow bracelets!


  • I fear it's far too late to get rid of the damn bracelets. They are now available in myriad other colors for countless "causes" and their dork factor remains unchanged. For example, while at the cheese factory in Beaver, UT a few weeks back, I noticed brown bracelets were available to support the troops from the local Guard unit.

  • Apparently this Lance Armstrong phenomenon has replaced the slap bracelets of our elementary school days.

    My nieces claim that there is a positive correlation between how cool someone is and how many bracelets they wear. As of yet, they cannot see any diminishing popularity returns on the number of bracelets one wears.

  • Certainly it makes one wonder whether '80s politicians, college kids, or soccer moms wore slap bracelets or multiple Swatch watches.

  • Reebok was selling grey bracelets that were supporting another great cause -- Jay-Z. Since they pulled them pretty quickly I can only assume that there was too much heat from people who thought it supported curing cancer, not buying Jay-Z a new Bently
