Lance Armstrong Shades Alex Rodriguez I’m a Better Person Than You!

Breaking News

Lance Armstrong is still pissed that fellow admitted cheater Alex Rodriguez has essentially been forgiven by society while he’s still considered a villain — since Lance says he’s done WAY more to help people.

“A-Rod didn’t raise half a BILLION dollars and try to save people’s lives,” Armstrong said on the “Today” show … obviously referring to the work he did with the Livestrong foundation. 

Armstrong then threw even more shade at the baseball player … sarcastically saying, “Look, it’s great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for the Boys & Girls Club.”

Armstrong has previously griped about A-Rod … telling “Freakonomics Radio” back in July, “The one key thing is that Alex Rodriguez was allowed to come back and play. And, Alex Rodriguez was part of a team sport. And thirdly, Alex Rodriguez never stood for anything else other than baseball.”

“So, I was never allowed to come back to my sport at any level, and most people viewed it as an individual sport. And, I stood for much more than just cycling.”

Breaking News

Alex Smith‘s NFL career could be over … ‘cause the Washington Redskins QB is now fighting off a serious infection after suffering a gruesome broken leg last month.

The injury was gnarly … Alex had his right leg snapped in half by Texans star J.J. Watt on Nov. 18 — breaking both his fibula and tibia to the point where bone poked through the skin.

Now … multiple reports say the QB is fighting off an infection that could put his football career in jeopardy.

According to Burgundy Blog … Smith is still in the hospital and could face more serious surgeries to fight off the infection, including “partial reconstruction.”

The Redskins released a statement Thursday morning asking for privacy for their superstar quarterback.

“On behalf of Alex Smith, we appreciate all of the concerns and prayers over the injury he incurred on November 18th against the Houston Texans.”

“Although this is a serious injury, Alex and his family remain strong. We would ask that everyone please honor the Smith family’s request for privacy at this time.”

Joe Theismann Couldn’t Sleep After Alex Smith Injury … ‘It Got To Me’

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Theismann says he was so shook after watching Alex Smith’s brutal leg injury on Sunday, he couldn’t sleep that night … telling TMZ Sports it’s brought back some painful memories. 

Joe was at FedEx Field on Sunday when Smith took a hit from JJ Watt that snapped his fibula and tibia — a compound fracture where the bone broke through the skin. 

Of course, Theismann was on the receiving end of a similar hit back in 1985 when Lawrence Taylor brutalized him on “Monday Night Football” … causing the same injury. 

“It was so surreal yesterday in the stadium,” Theismann told the guys on the TMZ Sports TV show … “to have what happened to Alex on the day that it happened to me 33 years ago.”

Joe says the similarities between the two are eerie. 

“It was I think 166th game for Alex. Mine was 167. Basically the same place on the field. Heck, I have a nephew named Alex Smith who’s 33-years-old … the whole thing is crazy.”

Theismann says for the first time in his life, he couldn’t really sleep after watching the injury in person — saying, ” I didn’t really think this thing had bothered me as much as it did and I think it probably got to me a little bit more.”

Joe says he considers Smith a friend and plans on reaching out to the QB after giving him some space to deal with the injury. 

The big message for Smith — Theismann says there’s light at the end of the tunnel … so don’t give up hope.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez: Engaged?!

For ages, fans have longed to know if a Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez wedding is on the way.

They’ve been official for more than a year and a half.

Now, fans believe that they’ve spotted J Lo sporting a massive diamind ring. Take a look, below:

The ring made its debut on Alex Rodriguez’s Instagram in a video set in the stands of a baseball stadium.

“Alright, here we are at Fenway,” Alex says.

“After four and a half… two to one, Dodgers!” he says.

Then he asks: “Jennifer, what’s the sign?”

She gestures, as you’re about to see, as if making a ruling on the game.

“Alright, there you have it,” he says. “Looks like a hit and run, back to you, Joe!”

Fans and followers were less interested in his pretend sports commentary than they were in that whopper of a diamond ring.

“Yoooooo did somebody get their ring?!” asked a fan.

That fan continued: “Forget the finals, tell me this is real!”

“That’s a big rock for Jenny from the block!” quipped another commenter.

“What is that bling @jlo,” another asked. “Are you love birds engaged?”

After more than a year and a half of officially dating, it would not be a surprise.

Now, some folks very wisely pointed out that this may have been bait or that these hopeful fans may have been jumping the gun.

After all, the ring appears to be on J Lo’s right hand — not, traditionally speaking, where one wears a ring.

But some very observant followers noticed that, in comparison to other phtoos, she and Alex’s positions seemed to be reversed.

In other words, that the video was mirrored.

“She’s actually on opposite side,” a commenter writes. “Watch her video, it’s on her left and she’s sitting to the right of him.”

If that comment is correct, she’s wearing a huge diamond ring on her left ring finger.

A pal of Alex made a very blunt comment.

The comment reads: “The sign I see is engagement!”

Those words were followed by three diamond emojis.

Curiously, Alex chose to respond.

“Hi Kimberly!” he wrote back. “Miss you guys!”

He followed his words with a thumbs up emoji.

Out of everything, Alex’s comment-without-commenting seems like the strongest indicator.

Sometimes, celebrities leak their own news in a way that gives them plausible deniability about it.

They drop hints and build up hype before they’re ready to make things official.

In the mean time, sometimes celebrities play pranks on their fans when those fans are hoping for something. 

It’s weird, we know.

Finally, sometimes people don’t even think about their jewelry or what it might signify. Yes, even public figures.

These two didn’t go public until March of 2017, but were believed to be dating before that.

It may be that they have now taken the next step and are simply engaged in plain sight.

No matter what fans may hope to hear, it is perfectly alright for them to simply enjoy their time as a couple.

Sometimes, you want to try things out before you make a big announcement. Just to be sure.
