I do. I called him something mean like “underwear washer” at one point in 2005 (old html site NFSW). Yeah, sorry about that, buddy. We just try to keep it funny around here.

He wrote me a few emails recently. Go figure. Floyd Landis has made recent allegations that mirror previous statements of Mr. Anderson.

Hello Big Jonny,
I wonder if you can hear my laughter all the way from New Zealand?
I’ve been practically glued to the news the last 24hrs. In fact, I had a really hard time sleeping last night. Big news for alot of folks in the know–the Andreus, Lemonds and Andersons.
I hope that some of those who made my life in my old home town of Austin rather unpleasant will now take a step back and consider all of this. Those were very difficult times for me and this lifts a great burden from my shoulders.
Furthermore, the fact that Floyd is admitting to using certain products (i.e. steroid patches) gives credence to my assertions about LA, which at the time were refuted by all the so-called experts.
When I went into the job in 2002 I had a great expectations for the finale, namely a bike shop of my own and well-earned credibility of my experience to go with it. Obviously, that didn’t turn out to be the case as I imagined. Nevertheless, I am now in this wonderful country with my wife and kids AND the bike shop. Although, now, I no longer feel the need to avoid the subject of my years with LA.
Mike, you were due. Man, you were due. Vindication must feel damn good about now.by
