Going on Oprah? What a wimp. I hope his kids find out about this when they grow up and emancipate from this SOB. He doesn't deserve any respect.
If it is of any consolation, apparently OJ has claimed that Oprah is partially responsible for him being in prison.

Simpson “doesn’t like Oprah. He feels like she’s partially responsible for him being in jail now,” Pardo claims. “She never let anyone like me come on the show and talk about him.”

Guess he is going to be even more upset when Lance gets on there.

Dave.

Exactly my first impression.

What has been a standing joke on CN forums for months is going to become a real joke.

Wow. Why is he talking about the past? I was wondering about his plans for this year; what he is working on, where competing and training? Why is he playing that old 'remember the time' song?

No chance of anything as good as this, is there?

He is going to take us through a "Lance is the victim" tour of bullsh!t and nothing more. He will concede that maybe he has done some things he wished he hadn't but the USADA singled him out for no good reason, and for anyone to say that his wins were due to anything but his dedication to his training is just a lie. All of his peers think he still won, and to take it away considering what was going on in the era just proves that this is a vendetta by Tygart and nothing more. He just wants to concentrate on __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ <- fill in with Cancer Shield...and oh yea, I want to compete in Tri and asshats like Dan Empfield want me there. I'm not going to drag other people into this (when asked about Johan), because I don't want to be like those sad pathetic people like Floyd and Tyler who nobody would even know about if it weren't for me.

Bank on it.
Totally agree, thumbs up!!

Honestly, wasn´t this just the most logical outcome?
Now I just wonder which Hollywood director they hire to set it up.

A huge pack of salvett tissues on the table, some quite harp music in the background, maybe a couple of angels hanging down from the ceiling, hell we even might see some dim smoke floating calmly across the floor, this is gonna be awesome!

I just hope Oprah put a clause in the contract which says either he comes clean, or the deal is off.

I'll bet he doesn't confess at all, he will probably skirt the doping issue and just talk about USADA, UCI, ASO, his history, and Livestrong.

one thing that confuses me is all the talk about giving back the prize money for first place. everybody knows that when you win a GT, you give all of your prize money to your team that rode the race to split. how are they going to get that money back from those 50+ riders?

I think i read earlier in this thread that Lance was going to be doing this from his own home?

Do you think he would be brazen enough to do it from his lounge room/living area that has all the yellow jerseys on the wall as just another 'up yours' to people like us?
