Armstrong Considering Confession, World ShrugsBy Michael Frank on January 7th, 2013
Hey, Lance: Too little, too late. The New York Times reported on Friday that the world’s most famous doper is considering confessing to taking performance-enhancing drugs. The reason? Not because Armstrong wants to do the right thing, make amends to the people he’s harmed, and begin to pay retribution for the millions he earned via fraud, but because he hopes for leniency on his lifetime ban on competing. Yes, the man who won and then lost seven Tour de France titles won’t be complete unless his tests himself in some backwater triathlon. Armstrong has become sad and pathetic, a figure whose downfall would be tragic if it weren’t for his unending calculations and seemingly bottomless hubris. If Armstrong really does confess, it’s not because he’s come to Jesus, but because he thinks there’s something to be gained. Via NY Times.
