In an exclusive interview with cyclingnews.com , disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong says he is the fall guy for the sport, and continued his efforts to get equal punishment for everyone who cheated while competing. Some of the more interesting excerpts from the Q&A: Cyclingnews: Why do you believe that a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is the best way forward for cycling? Armstrong: It's not the best way, it's the only way. As much as I'm the eye of the storm this is not about one man, one team, one director.

Jamey Wright could count the years. He could count the games, all the nights spent away from family. Could count the wins and losses, even the thousands of pitches that have constituted his 17-year career. Only what he's counting on now is what he's never had.

The killer is responsible, of course.
