No, I'm not talking about Neil....but another Armstrong - Lance !

To the date 35 years after Neil returned from the moon Lance returned from a short trip through France securing his 6th win of the Tour de France !

Congrats !!! That name somehow must stand for something special, Neil, Lance, Louis.....

It is certainly an amazing accomplishment, and quite a thrill. The coincidence of the shared name has struck me, as well. My congratulations to all Armstrongs everywhere!

Since we are getting mystical just because of a name:
It is also amazing that despite their name, neither of them needed their strong arms to achieve.

Neil needed a strong rocket, Louis a strong breath, mouth and ears, and Lance strong legs.

The only ones needing strong arms are the steady forgers on ebay ...... and of those, only one thing is sure about those: their name is not Armstrong ....

Always remember: a blackbird has two legs, Neil Armstrong has two legs, this is why Neil Armstrong is a blackbird.

Any other issues?
