Floyd Landis: Brush with fame

Floyd Landis, the 2006 Tour de France winner (accused of using banned substances to help) sought me out for help the other night.

Out of curiosity, I went to an event to raise money for the Floyd Fairness Fund, which is raising money for his legal defense. While I was contemplating the snack table, Floyd touched me on the shoulder and said "Excuse me, can I squeeze by". I said "sure" and moved out of the way. Floyd said "Thanks". Floyd passed me like he passed all those domestiques going up the Alps, and headed off, probably to the washroom -- probably a result of having one of the Three Floyds beers that were available.

Not much of a brush with fame, but it's all I've got today.
