Our own Michael McCann goes one-on-one with Lance Armstrong in Austin, Texas for CNNSI! As Mike tells the story:
"A few weeks ago, I discovered I had a new Twitter follower: Lance Armstrong. I thought it was a little odd because I don't cover cycling and the times I've written about Armstrong's legal issues I've often sharply criticized him. Nonetheless, I was intrigued. Soon we began corresponding privately and last week Armstrong invited me to his house in Austin for an interview."

Congratulations Mike on a tremendous job--both in getting Lance's attention and becoming a relevant contributor to the development of this international strory. While Mike won't display any braggadocio, allow me to do so. Huzzah Mike! [Now if he had interviewed Lance for The Sports Law Blog we might get a few more followers.....]
