I Don’t Care If It Rains Or Freezes
There’s a graffiti artist in the LA Fairfax district who has probably gained more fame in the last two days than in the rest of his artistic life by spray painting on a wall a silhouette of Lance Armstrong riding his bike with an IV attached. Look it up yourself.
The artist otherwise known as Plastic Jesus was a big fan of Lance, who, he says, “…was the ultimate cycling hero for me. He took cycling out of the geek enthusiast arena and brought it to a mainstream audience. People bought bikes and wore lycra because of Lance’s profile, success and status,” says the 48-year-old, who is also from Britain but moved to L.A. in 2007.
And another sports hero bites the dust.
But geez, anything that will get cyclists out of lycra is more than okay by me.Explore posts in the same categories: Art, Celebrities, Exercise, Health, Humor, News, Small Town Life, Sports, Substance Abuse comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
