Re Beck's soccer vitriol

Attention, insightful Dave Zirin, loved your thoughts re Beck, Liddy and soccer. Has Beck ever commented re Lance Armstrong? Now there's a Euro sport that's found some clout. Somewhat. Until no American wins the tour for a year or two, at which point it'll fall back to us true fans; you know, us drug-loving, cowardly (rational) commies. Anyway, I couldn't help but think that, if old Glenn could be induced into speaking on cycling, Nordic skiing, our most prevalent language—on any sport not entirely American—it'd make for great follow-up pieces.
