Whatever is my response on the original cheating. If they took all doped cyclists out of the Tour de France, I might have won it by accident on my Schwinn.

But Lance destroyed innocent people who told the truth about him. He should pay them pack every penny he cost them in legal fees and reputation. And he should do it now.

A person familiar with the situation says Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey during an interview Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.
The admission -- made in an interview to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey's network -- was first revealed by the Associated Press and later confirmed by CBS News. Winfrey will appear (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_162-57563777/lance-armstrong-ready-to-come-clean-on-doping/) on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday to talk about the Armstrong interview.

maybe, maybe not

Winfrey described Armstrong as "forthcoming" in the interview and while he "did not come clean in the manner that I expected," she said she was "satisfied by the answers."

all the sports icons of this generation have self-destructed. Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Barry Bonds, Mike Tyson.

I wonder how it took them THIS long to catch him. One would have thought he would have been caught almost immediately(or bit sometime afterwards).

He was taking stuff they couldn't test for back then. They retested the samples with the new technology and it was positive.
