Wanna Take Lance Armstrong To Court? Don't Even Try It

Bomani Jones explains why taking Lance Armstrong to court over steroid allegations is a bad idea.

Roger Clemens and his attorneys pantsed the federal government in court, winning him an acquittal on perjury charges. Do you believe Clemens now? Didn't think so.

The government, USADA and everyone else better keep that in mind before they mess with Lance Armstrong again. Armstrong, as you know, loves fights about whether or not he's clean. After all, he seems to win every time.

And even if he lost, there's no beating Armstrong. Who wants to believe the man who defeated cancer cheated? Who wins if that's true? Plus, what does believing a lie cost most people? Very little.

To illustrate this fascinating glimpse into the value of honesty, the new "Bomani & Jones" makes it clear using an example from pop culture. Consider this the first -- and probably only -- feature to include cycling and Luther Vandross at the same damn time.

At the same damn time.
