Lance Armstrong has decided to come clean, so to speak. Since the big dopes life is essentially ruined, hes apparently going to admit it all and ask for forgiveness. And who better to give it to him that Oprah? Shes got him on January 17 from 9 to 10:30pm on the hard to find OWN channel. Good for her. It used to be that celebrities went to Larry King or Barbara Walters when they needed to eat crow publicly and return to the world....(snip) ...We will wait for the usual clips, leaks, and advance bites. PS Apparently the Showtime show, 60 Minutes Sports is also headlining a tremendous piece by Scott Pelley. Check it out at CBSNews.com...(snip)

LOS ANGELES -- Lance Armstrong has agreed to a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey where he will address allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career.
According to a release posted on Oprah's website on Tuesday, it's the first interview with Armstrong since his athletic career crumbled under the weight of a massive report by USADA detailing allegations of drug use by the famous cyclist and teammates on his U.S. Postal Service teams.
It's unclear if the interview at Armstrong's home in Austin, Texas, has already been taped. Nicole Nichols, a spokeswoman for Oprah Winfrey Network & Harpo Studios, declined comment.
The show will air at 9 p.m. EST on Jan. 17 on OWN and Oprah.com. (excerpt)
Forgiveness from whom? America? Oprah? Her audience?
His crime is against the cyclists denied the victory because he wouldn’t quit doping and lying. And their families, supporters, trainers, fans, etc.
Sure, they might get a post haste medal. So what? No glory, no recognition, no thrill of victory, no endorsements, none of the positives that come from excellence in sport.
Some say those in 2nd, 3rd and 4th doped, too. Well how do we know? If they did, I feel the same way about them.
But the fish rots from the head.
I think it’s pronounced O-fra
I think he already got the thrill of victory all of the years he was celebrated as the best and they really can’t take THAT away from him since he already revelled in that.
Harpo spelled backwards.
Well he will make the rounds on the Oprah trinity starting with her first, then going to Dr. Phil for mental forgiveness the the guilt and then onto Dr. Oz to “give back” and warn others of the dangers of illegal doping and a demonstation of natural substances to get the effects of doping legally.
Sanctioned by the Church of Entertainment Media.
It's official now: I've lost total respect for Lance Armstrong. Just go away, Lance....
As it should be! Opretta, the Popess of the Church of Progress.
An alternate spelling of....
Ya know, Verdi, Puccini.
Will Lance pedal away after this?
