Et Tu, Ullrich?

By spokesman | September 10, 2008

Now that Lance Armstrong has confirmed that he is coming out of retirement, the natural follow-up question is - What about Jan Ullrich?  The greatest challenger to Lance had been Ulrich and it would only be fitting to see these two in competition again.  What are are the Yankees without the Red Sox, Ali without Frazier, and Rocky without Apollo Creed?  The video below is an Adidas commercial featuring Ullrich in his prime.

    It would definitely be cool if Ulrich would return, as well. I don’t know if that is in the cards.

    I have low expectations, and hopefully Lance will not be humiliated. But I want him to win his 8th Tour all the same, ‘cos I am a Lance fan. I do think if anyone can retire and un-retire with glory, it would be Lance.

    That’s a good question, but Ullrich’s “retirement” occurred after he was suspended from the TdF and fired from T Mobile in the wake of the Operation Puerto scandal.

    It was a great rivalry, but Ulrich is a druggie! He shouldn’t even be compared to Lance anymore.
