Well, He Admitted It

I am sure attorneys of various businesses and individuals from all over the world will closely watch what Lance Armstrong has to say to Oprah Winfrey when the interview airs this Thursday.

That $125 million-fortune of Lance's is likely to be gone in short order now that he has clearly scammed courts in various cases where he claimed he was slandered and the like.

It isn't just endorsement outfits and the media that were hoodwinked into bowing down to Lance and his army of lawyers; it was also individuals whose lives were damaged for daring to challenge the Official Story of Lance Armstrong.

The disgraced cyclist made the confession to Oprah Winfrey during an interview taped Monday, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey’s network.

The admission Monday came hours after an emotional apology by Armstrong to the Livestrong charity that he founded and took global on the strength of his celebrity as a cancer survivor who came back to win one of sport’s most grueling events.

The confession was a stunning reversal, after years of public statements, interviews and court battles in which he denied doping and zealously protected his reputation.

The most damning part of the USADA report wasn't the doping but Lance's treatment of other people. He put the Mafia to shame with those tactics, tactics only a sociopath would use.
