Lance Armstrong just happens to pose next to his Tour de France jerseys | Yahoo! Sports Blogs – Yahoo! Sports.

Lance Armstrong just chilling …

Now THIS is a finely-honed troll move. Over the weekend, the above photo showed up in Lance Armstrong’s Twitter feed, accompanied by the message “Back in Austin and just layin’ around … “

Armstrong is, of course, reclining oh-so-casually in front of the seven Tour de France jerseys he won.
