Lance Armstrong Confession Interview *Live Thread
1/17/13 | Vision

Posted on 01/17/2013 6:23:58 PM PST by Vision

Lance Armstrong's confession interview is on the Oprah channel now...

He's trying to be honest but is still lying. He's already said he didn't do a lot of EPO and that is simply ridiculous.

Hey, I have stayed up to watch this.

Interesting stuff, of course, for those of us who have followed cycling.

He is basically admitting everything, but claims he was clean in 2009.

Wonder if Oprah will get into his campaigns of intimidation etc, which is the other really evil side of Armstrong.

Also interesting from a Norwegian perspective that Thor Hushovd still calls Armstrong a friend...

That's like being a little bit pregnant, Vance.

Not sure why an oprah interview with lance armstrong justifies a “ive thread” but ... Ok. :-).

Does anyone think they can trust this guy to tell the truth? He is in damage control mode.

He just lied that he never kicked people off his teams for not doping.

He's lying again...pathetic...

I don’t get it. Maybe we should have congressional hearings too.

I bet the whole cycling world is getting over their glee pretty quickly as they realize what’s about to happen.

My best guess is that this was the option to a Blackmail scheme.....lesser of two evils.

Personally, I'm not convinced that these drugs really give you an edge in this sport. You still have to work at it. The bike doesn't pedal itself.

LOL. I don’t know, but I actually do watch Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars.

I’m TIVO-ing right now, to let it get ahead 30 minutes, so I can skip through the commercials.

It’s not just happening now. It’s been a long time coming and occured under the weight of evidence.

Thor was caught doping. Just saying.

That is unknown to me.

But, his late mountain heroics for such a big man and a sprinter was perhaps a bit odd.

When did he get caught?

I understand that, but after being stripped of medals/honors, drummed from his own organization, what is the purpose?

I don't know when he got caught but I believe it was mentioned in Hamilton's book. There's some info on the internet.

Getting the truth out is always important, no?

Additionally, if there is some personal redemption for Armstrong is starts with admitting his faults.

Also this involves cycling as a major sport. Where the UCI involved in covering this up, major sponsors?

Who had the motivation to destroy the golden boy of the sport, who singlehandedly put cycling on the map in the United States.

That podium clip they just went over...Orpah doesn’t understand how he could have said that...

That's NOTHING compared to Obama. Just go back to the second presidential debate. Anyway...

It’s certainly not in the public domain, but you have to wonder about the UCI and the hiding of positive tests from public knowledge.

But, I have heard nothing about this in the Norwegian media, so would love a ping or freepmail with details.

Anyhow, back to the interview.
