Lance Armstrong. Did he dope or is he just a dope?
You be the judge.
Does anyone really care at this point?
Apparently, there are people who do. Or at least, Oprah would like us to think we should care.
All the latest hype is for a “no holds barred” interview with Oprah, to be aired Thursday, where he is finally ready to tell all. He is “calm…at ease and ready to speak candidly.” Again, I ask. Who cares?
I am not an expert in drug enhanced sports performance. I did not follow every speck of the Lance Armstrong doping studies. But I followed enough to determine, for myself, that with the insane amount of information collected, the fact that he was stripped of all seven titles, and a chief executive of the USADA is willing to publicly say that it was the “most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen?” I’m guessing, and it’s just a guess, that Lance Armstrong was guilty of taking illegal sports enhancing drugs.
Seriously. Does anyone else doubt it?
And now, he’s going to appear on Oprah and it’s been leaked that he’s going to apologize and offer a “limited confession?”
He is an embarrassment. Not only because he took illegal drugs but because he denied it, vehemently, for years. He is reportedly worth $100 million. He doesn’t need to confess. We know he’s guilty. He doesn’t need to apologize. We don’t care anymore.
Instead, he should be laughing all the way to the bank.
Or, at the very least, crawl back under the rock from which he came.
