Were the Titans?
(We are the Titans)
Before the Olympic gods ruled over ancient Greece, the Titans
ruled the world from the heavens. Cronus, the King of the Titans,
and Rhea bore 6 children. As prophecy declared that an offspring
of Cronus would overthrow him, Cronus ate each of his children
upon birth. Rhea, wanting to keep her sixth child, tricked Cronus
into eating a stone wrapped in baby clothes. The sixth child was
Zeus. Zeus moved quickly to overthrow the Titans and put an elixir
in Cronus drink that forced him to regurgitate the previous
five children. Zeus then joined with his brothers and sisters
and overthrew the Titans. Zeus then became Supreme Ruler of the
Olympians. Atlas, one of the Titans who fought against Zeus, was
forced to hold up the heavens and Earth as punishment.

he has won 7 time record), in yellow but
surrounded by controversy, regarding this year's possible all
time record breaking "Tour" title. Armstrong was once
a rider who was considered a star but little more than a potential
stage winner. Now he has eclipsed the efforts of the greatest
riders in the biggest race. Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard
Hinault and Miguel Indurain all worked hard. Each of the five-time
champions tried but failed to claim a sixth title.
