Lance Armstrong Rings Closing Bell at NYSE
Dave Aiello wrote, "One of the advantages of having clients on Wall Street that I have never taken advantage of is the opportunity to visit the New York Stock Exchange during the trading day. However, today at the New York Stock Exchange, Lance Armstrong was honored for
the Tour de France. He was accompanied by Phil Knight of Nike and his
to ring the closing bell."
"My friend Richard Ziegler and I took a little
off from work to be there. It was fun, but we got about as close to him as
would have standing at the finish of one of the stages."
"There is no photography allowed inside the NYSE, otherwise I would have taken a picture with my Nikon Coolpix 950. But, I have a witness and
ticket to prove I was there." (Update: Story on Yahoo! about all the events that Lance Armstrong took part in today.)
