Except that the cat that crossed Lance Armstrong path wasn't even black.
Anyway, it was certainly bad luck today for Lance Armstrong when a cat darted out in front of him on a four hour training ride.
The seven time Tour de France champion wrote on twitter:
“Back from a nice/easy 4 hr ride.” he tweeted followed by. “Well it was nice til that cat decided to run out right in front me and I go ass over bandbox. Wasn’t even a black cat. And for all you cat lovers, cat was fine. At least I never saw it again. Bad kitty.”
