Here’s a Twitter DM exchange I imagine took place last night…
“Hey, bro. What’s up? You got any juice?”
“Oh totally, I can hook you up!”
“Aw man thanks. You’re the best. How do I get the roids from you?”
And then came this…
But here’s where it gets weird: the number isn’t Armstrong’s. It’s some random Canadian dude’s cell number. Deadspin’s Barry Petchesky called it.
It was the voicemail of one Tyson Laidler, who a quick search reveals to be a recent graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. (The 778 area code is a BC exchange.) But wait. A tipster points out that the exact same phone number was tweeted in July, by one Ty Laidler. And this Ty Laidler claims to be a member of the Canadian Air Force. (He’s also a gem; he thinks “Toronto dance floors smell like immigrant” and told Tim Tebow he hopes he gets paralyzed.)
Are there two Tyson Laidlers? Is one of them Lance Armstrong? What is going on here?
But then came this tweet…
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?!?!?!?!
