I try not to get too into television shows, but my roommates here in Shanghai are into Breaking Bad, a many-award-winning cable TV show, leading me to seeing most of season three, which they have on dvd.
In the middle of watching, Lance Armstrong confessed to cheating. I couldn’t help but notice in both cases
- His story began with a modestly successful man getting cancer
- Which he overcame
- To a life of more drama
- Got into drugs
- Hiding from cops
- Legal issues
- Got in over his head, but kept going
- Partnered with other drug users
- All happening on TV
- etc etc
Lance Armstrong is a one-man Breaking Bad.
