Good evening Sir, my name is Chad. I come from a rough area. I used to be a pretty good cyclist, but then I poked Lance Armstrong. That is why I am addicted to crack.
That seems to be what Chad is saying on A&E's Intervention.
Way back when, Chad was on the US Postal Service cycling team. He showed a lot of potential, so he was invited to participate in a camp at an Olympic training facility. It was at this camp that he had a meeting with Armstrong that apparently changed his life forever.
In a former teammate's words: "Lance Armstrong was already a big star at that point. I think a lot of the young riders that were there were in awe of somebody like that. Chad wasn't necessarily somebody in awe of anything."
Other guy: "Chad walked up to Lance and called him a 'doughboy' and pushed his belly in and Lance got really upset."
Chad: "Needless to say, the next morning I was asked to leave the Olympic Training Center."
This put Chad's life into a tailspin. He fell into drugs, derailing a once-promising career.
Chad poked Lance Armstrong, yadda-yadda-yadda, Chad ended up a crack addict and on a cable television show where families confront addicts.
Meanwhile, Lance Armstrong is off with Kate Hudson.
The lesson here as always is: Life really sucks sometimes when you're not Lance Armstrong.
