A Day Late

Lance Armstrong has reportedly admitted to Oprah that he used PED’s. I hope that everyone goes on with their lives comforted by this “revelation”.

The time for this confession was years ago. If Lance had really wanted to come clean he should have done then or at worst in August when he decided not to keep fighting the doping charges. Instead he chose that moment to do what he has always done, deny the charges and slander his accusers.

So, why is he coming clean now? My only guess is that after five months of huddling with PR types he has come to the conclusion that this is the only way he can ever rescue his reputation. I’m not falling for it and I hope other won’t either. This is a man who perpetuated a fraud and ruined the reputation of countless others to protect himself. A few tears on a couch with Oprah won’t even begin to make up for all of that.

    2. The check is in the mail.
    3. I won’t (censored) in (censored).
    4. I didn’t throw at him intentionally.

    Yeah, I am just *so* shocked that this fellow lied to me, shocked …

    thank goodness he waited all these years, his cameo in Dodgeball was great and convinced Peter La Fleur to go back and compete. We would have lost that impossibly great cinematic moment had he confessed earlier.
