Lance Armstrong may have pulled a fast one (or seven) on us, and Manti Te'o may be the weirdest liar in the history of sports, but please don't fret: You can trust your sports heroes.
I have always loved the quote, "The older I get, the better I was." As tales of sporting glory are told through the years, the distance between memory and reality often grows.
At some point. I stopped having sports heroes. Their time on the stage is so brief and what awaits many after they retire from the game is a lifetime of sore limbs and decades of anti-climax.
