"Say it Ain't So, Lance!" The Unassailable Gift of Integrity
One of the most tragic and disturbing sports stories of recent times is the epic rise and ignominious fall of Lance Armstrong.* If integrity is the bedrock upon which our character rests, then this former hero ended up as a Bond villain**, and one of the greatest cheats in sports history. With this in mind, I offer to you a new cocktail inspired by this thing we can’t buy, this gift we give to ourselves: integrity. Without it, we are lost. With it, we are a true human being.
