Willie Nelson on Lance Armstrong
 
Comment: Did Willie Nelson really say "I think it is just terrible and
disgusting how everyone has treated Lance Armstrong, especially after what
he achieved, winning seven Tour de France races while on drugs. When I was
on drugs, I couldn't even find my bike."

This quote is all over Facebook. It's funny. But in searching, I can't
find any verification, just the quote repeated and repeated. Willie does
sometimes make light of his "habits," so it's possible. Willie and Lance
are actually friends and Willie has stood up for him. But I don't know
that this quote is a way he'd be doing that. I'm suspecting it's not real.

(Snerk!) I love Willie. Hope it's true.

It sounds like a stand-up comedian's joke. Could have been written for Nelson to use while retuning his guitar in concert, or it could have been someone else's joke attributed to him as a known heavy-drug user.
