Skip to comments.Lance Armstrong Will Ask Oprah for Absolution, Forgiveness in Interview
Posted on 01/08/2013 11:29:48 PM PST by golux
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)
White guy asks for forgiveness from a random black lady. I don’t get it. Is this continued reperations?
I’ve heard that it is a big myth that you have to appeal in person to Oprah, many say that just praying to her from your own home is equally valid.
He was going to ask God but rumor had it that he might have been asked to sell all he had and give it to the poor!
Oprah indeed! scheeeesch!
Insanity! It does run in the liberal family!
I stuck with this guy thinking there was no way he was guilty after always passing and never failing a doping test.
It’s a downright conspiracy on his part. Surely the people had to know why they were giving him blood transfusions to make him clean.
He doesn't have the cojones...
Bless me Oprah for I have sinned...
Things are *really* getting weird in this country. Some wackjob went on for no-telling-how-long on an American Thinker article the other day about “Father 0bama”, Jamie Fox calls 0bam his “lord & savior” & now this. :-/
She sees you when you’re sleeping, she knows when you’re awake...
Never watched oprah, but wondered if this was some kind of bad remake of the oj simpson story.
Why not go all out and ask the Pope?
How many MILLIONS does the confessor make and how many MILLIONS will that OPRAH make?
Call me, i’ll be sorting my sock draw out.....
Some of his recent tweets suggest his stance may be - he did what he had to do to win. After all, he as racing against a field of dopers and he only did what they did to level the playing field.
Not sure it’s going to fly with anyone though. He’d be missing the point that all doping in not created equal and maybe he just doped better then everyone else, not that he was really a better rider then everyone else.
He should ask Greg Lemond for forgiveness.
Ha! That does explain how he can ride all those hours on that tiny bike seat. Still, I am disgusted by the mental picture of him groveling before Oprah or any other entertainment TV huckster. I really miss the days when people had shame. Shame was awesome.
Druggies can't be shamed.
So in the beggining a few months back I supported him thinking he just doped like all the top finishers....But it was a lot more than this. But if-when he comes on Oprah he will probably say he just did what the rest where
But its not even that kind of drugs is it? I mean we are talking about blood doping to win, not altering your state of mind on an addictive drug that makes you feel good all over. There should be clear-headed SHAME here. He should sulk away and lurk in the shadows of society feeling... you know... ashamed! But no, he wants to go be the center act in Oprah's three ring circus and freak show.
If Armstrong is on the “juice” his cojones are really small.
I knew he was bad when he started dating that dope, Sheryl Crow!!!
I can’t stand this guy and never could. I ALWAYS thought he was over rated and didn’t deserve the hero worship that he received. It is not one of those things where I liked him and then he screwed up and now I don’t like him. I never did. I thought he was very arrogant from day one. Trust me if he were nice from day one and I found him impressive and then he screwed up, I would still support him. However, I never supported him and never will. For example, I admire Tebow for his Christian lifestyle and the way he lives his life. If for some reason, he got a DUI or something, I would not bash him but pray for him and hope that he got help. Very different situation with Armstrong.
Any user of a drug used to illicitly alter one's state mentally or physically can't be shamed.
He should sulk away and lurk in the shadows of society feeling... you know... ashamed!
Agreed, but as I stated, druggies can't be shamed.
Is this the same interview where OJ comes out and gives her the knife?
LeMond isn’t the “I told you so” type, I think. (Maybe I am wrong?) I think LeMond really felt that the drug situation was getting out of control, that the drugs were too good even... That the cyclists were no longer having “bad days.” The other question, naturally, is whether LeMond himself used PEDs. I like to think not. And, at the same time, in a great cat and mouse game, it appears Lance’s star fell not because of positive tests but because of other riders’ testimonies.
I would not ask that cow how to cross the street.
Another fraud scheme that blowed up good. Put your faith in God, not men .... or women. LA should run for Congress as a DemocRat. He’ll fit right in with the RICO party.
Gee whiz! What the heck does skin color have to do with all this? This kind of creepy race crap discredits FR.
