You can call me anything but don't you dare call me "fat".
I'm with LA
I blew beer out of my nose when he said that
That interview was crap. I couldn't watch him try to put such a fine point on such trivial points...
This is what he should have said:
- I allowed myself to get swept up in the pervasive drug culture of pro cycling.
- I used drugs throughout my entire career - rarely if ever riding clean
- I was so caught up in it, that I lied to everyone about my involvement
- I encouraged others to use drugs, and bullied riders who wouldn't go along
- I set out to destroy those inside and outside the sport who threatened to expose the truth
- I knew it was wrong but did it all anyway - because I felt like I earned it - was entitled
- I now realize how wrong I was to do these things
- I am very very sorry, and I will work toward settling up with those I destroyed
- I will testify against those at the top of the sport who knew all these things were going on - but did nothing
- I will devote the rest of my life to the fight against cancer and to creating a cleaner sport
- most of all, I apologize to my kids for being such a poor role model
I won't be watching tonight.Formerly Eduardo Bianchi
Jah! Say it ain't so!!! There're little children the world over going to bed sober evey night and you blew beer out your nose???
Just another evil thing that Lance is responsible for!
Calling alcohol abuse oh Jah. Blowing perfectly good beer out said nostrils :-)"Riding is about rhythm and flow. It's the wind in your face and the challange of hammering up a long hill. It's the reward at the top and the thrill of a high-speed descent. Biking lets you come alive both in body and spirit."
I'm not a hater or a teabagger - but if you are going to sit down with Oprah, then you should just fess up and get it over with. Otherwise, who frigging cares what he says? Who has time to parse the truths from half truths and lies?
IMHO - there is no way he wins 7 in a row if the sport is 100% clean. He was a great rider who was much better at doping than his contemporaries. I wonder how he thinks he would have done if all were clean? Those are the types of questions that I would like to see answered.
I heard there may be a class action lawsuit related to that particular part of the interview. I suspected all along that I wasn't the only one. Hope he admits this to Oprah tonight, it was an American tragedy
Boy Wonder spent millions as the plaintiff, now he will pay out the rest as a defendant. The winners in all of this will be his legal team, thousands of billable hours all around - for years to come
That was actually one of the most phucked up comments he made. So condescending to women - as if Betsy could forgive him because she is so delicate and as a woman being called "fat" would be so hurtful. Please... I think "whore" would probably have bothered her more.
I've long thought the guy doped, and felt that he's been an a**hole. The interview kind of blew my mind as it reveals just how big an a**hole he really is (not was, is).
