Landis mess gets messier
Apparently the Landis camp felt that merely firing Geoghegan, plus the latter's statement of apology (he said he had acted "impulsively, after a beer or two") didn't provide enough damage control, so he was ushered into rehab on Monday. That's right, it's not his fault (or Floyd's) -- it's the demon rum! Welcome to accountability in the 21st Century, at least for actors, politicians and cyclist managers.

Make sure he says hi to Gavin Newsome, Mel Gibson and that guy from Gray's Anatomy
Next time I decide to screw up in a career destructive fashion, remind me to have a few cocktails beforehand. Rehab is the sanctuary of those who are incable of thinking before they speak, and those who refuse to justify mistakes made in full view of the public. Does this guy truly intend to turn his life around? Or, will he walk out after the first weekend? We've seen this act so many times before, that it no longer really matters. As embarrassing as Tomkat, or T.O.
Clearly he hasn't been paying attention, you don't go to rehab until after doing the talk show apology tour.
Hey Pete - really like the new format as well as your responses in the forum - very interactive...
I will say this, the last time I jumped on a bottle of demon rum, I woke up naked in a ditch next to a dead cow. Could've been worse for this guy.
