And now, a brief word from Mr. Cynical

Days like this, the Skept-O-Meter breaches the red line and keeps right on zooming upward until ...

Well, until it fries a piston and Mr. Cynical makes his appearance, sneering at pretty much everything.

And so as I hear Lance Armstrong has kinda-sorta admitted what he spent years smearing others for suggesting -- and did it in a forum intended to make him as sympathetic a figure as possible -- I once again conclude that there's nothing Lance won't do for the greater good of Lance.

And as Chip Kelly escapes Pete Carroll-like to the NFL, I await NCAA sanctions against his Oregon program in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

And as the Bears hire well-traveled Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, I can't help thinking if he's so great, how come in almost 30 years of traipsing from one NFL franchise to another, none of them ever thought to hire him as a head coach.

Sneer, sneer, sneer ...
