    An excellent title for the fourth story by Sally Jenkins, which ran in the Washington Post recently. All four stories July 10, 20, 23, 28, 2003 mostly focus upon Lance Armstrong, with the first (7-10, "There is no "I" in team or USPS") profiling the intriguing and motley members of his US Postal Service Team.

    The last three include inside portraits of Armstrong, and the author knows him well. She has ghost-written several books for him. Along with insight on Lance's incredible ability to be a good person, and a phenomenal athlete, at the same time, they also delve into the interesting (and foreign to most Americans) world of professional cycling. In what kind of sport do the competitors wait for a crashed leader to get back into the race?
