Cycling icon becomes the latest "fall from grace" story in professional sporting history
When all is said and done, historians may dub 2012 the "Year of The Sports Scandal." Penn State's famed football powerhouse lost its winningest crown. Chad Ochocinco lost his job with the Miami Dolphins (and lost his wife.) This week, history making cycling icon Lance Armstrong had 14 years of his career vacated by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. That means forfeiting all his Tour titles from 1999 through 2005, when an investigation was launched into allegations that he took a banned performance enhancing supplement. (Associated Press)
