If there's ever a Troll Hall of Fame, Armstrong should the first inductee. It's really impressive how even when we think everything's over already and he's done, he can still throw us here in the Clinic in a fit.

What are the chances his girls will come curl up on daddie's lap during the "interview"?

Jon Stewart is not always great with the confrontational interviews, he's sometimes messed them up in past. I think he could take on Armstrong, but I'm not certain of it.

I imagine him playing with them in the opening montage.

"He is a not only a crusader against cancer, but a loving father of (insert number)..."

So true. The power he holds over the clinic is hilarious.

No way he will admit all with the legal issues still hanging around (if they still are). Hopefully he will drop a few bombs like the one in my signature, attack his victimized () accusers, and add in some witch hunt and level playing field stuff. All along Oprah sits there and comforts him with softball questions with little follow up. He will just skirt around some definite answers. Nothing to see here. The haters will break out in a rash.

Go Lance! Never give up!

Admitting doping will not have any of the race ban rolled back tho. Bans are reduced for cooperating with investigations, so he needs to talk about how it all happened.
The money trail and the drug transport trail, JB, Ferrari, all them.
And since he is a convicted ringleader (not alledged, the body which he gave jurisdiction to ruled on him) throwing a few minions under the teambus is not going to cut it.

I just cannot see it happening.

Maybe people are already indifferent to the do's or do nots of wonderboy.

You really shouldn't make a one time Road Rage Cycling World Champion bigger than he actually is, he is of the stature of Astarloa, nothing more, nothing less.

The power the clinic holds over you is even funnier.
