Did you think Lance Armstrong could come half-way clean and everyone would just forget about what he did??
NOPE! The U.S. Justice Department has officially filed a lawsuit against Lance (it was inevitable) and his company Tailwind Sports for the millions of dollars that the U.S. Postal Service used in sponsoring the cycling team! We'd say they have every right to, too!
So how much are they going for?
If the walls at Lance Armstrong's spacious 1.7-acre estate in Austin, Tex. could talk, what secrets would they divulge??
Well, if the new owner can get inanimate objects to talk, we'll soon find out! LOLz!
The new owner took out a $3.1 million loan to purchase the Central Austin property. Originally the house was listed at $10 million; in 2012, the estate was listed for
Earlier this month, Lance Armstrong was denied the chance to swim in the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships, but just 'cuz he can't swim, doesn't mean that he can't run.
While we think it's great that the former biker is keeping in shape, we don't think he should be training, but from his tweet, it seems like that's exactly what he's doing.
Hey Lance Armstrong!
We're sorry to hear that you're unable to take part in a swimming competition in Texas, but maybe you shouldn't have cheated in sports for all those years and then followed it all up with lies. You'd probably be able to compete in anything you wanted had you not done that! Just sayin'!
Armstrong wanted to compete at the Masters South Central Zone Swimming Championships in his home town of Austin this weekend. It has nothing to do with cycling, it isn't subjected to USA or World Anti-Doping Agency codes. No prob, right?
After all his dramz, we're not surprised that Lance Armstrong wants to get out of the limelight.
The cyclist was spotted at LAX yesterday getting ready to leave El Lay, and despite the fact that everyone and their mom is trying to gang up on him with lawsuits — he actually appeared kind of happy.
Armstrong strolled through the airport with a slight smirk on his face, which made us smile because we know everything that he's been going through is tough. We can only imagine how he's feeling, but we're hoping his life gets better soon.
Because at the end of the day, he's still human, and we all make mistakes.
Keep your head up Lance!

Lance Armstrong's life story is heading to the big screen!
A couple months ago, we learned that Bad Robot Productions and Paramount Pictures were getting ready to produce a flick based on Juliet Macur's book, Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong — but now, reports are stating that Warner Bros. is working on their own version of the biker's life and
Lance Armstrong has another hurdle to go over!
According to reports, the Justice Department is joining biker, Floyd Landis in a lawsuit that was filed a couple years ago against Lance, and we don't know about you, but we think Armstrong is gonna have a tough time getting out of this one!!
The reason why the government decided to jump on the suit is because
