Floyd Landis's Book Comes Back To Haunt Him
landis_positively_false.jpgIn 2006, cyclist Floyd Landis won the Tour de France. His title was soon stripped due to swirling rumors, failed drug tests and facts. Floyd adamantly defended himself. For years he spoke of his innocence to any hot microphone within 75 yards. He spent $2 million clams (some of which was donated by supportive fans) in courts maintaining he was clean.

He even put out a book entitled Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France. There was no way he was guilty of using performance enhancing drugs, he wrote a book saying he didn't. Case closed.

But hang on. Last week Floyd finally came clean and admitted he was a cheater and a doper. Thus negating his best-selling tome.

Unfortunately, this isn't this first time a celebrity wrote a book that came back to bite them in the ass. Including:

Lawrence Taylor's I Don't Even Like Cocaine and Underage Girls

Governor Mark Sanford's Field Guide to the Appalachian Trail

Lindsay Lohan's Clean Living & Hard Work: A Handbook For Young Actresses

Tiger Wood's Golf and Family. That's All I Do In My Life. Golf and Family. That's It

And,

John Edward's Fidelity, Honesty and Birth Control: My Life As a Politician

The dude is quite the liar. Reminds me of Pete Rose. It's all that denial that really pissed people off. Plus he's throwing everyone else under the bus too. Remind me not to go bike riding with this putz.
