I wonder if Oprah is running a risk in this. If she goes out there and do softies all 90 minutes, will people outside this forum give a sharpie. The "fear" of becomming a laughingstock may actually force her to ask something... not much though...

What I really think will happen is he "Isn't there to talk about the past." He gives some BS line about putting it all behind him. He doesn't say he did, or he didn't. All in all, I think it will be a waste of time.
Well, the "I'm not here to talk about the past" ploy didn't work for Mark McGwire. It went over like a lead balloon.

Wouldn't it be a hoot if Nancy Grace did the interview? Particularly if she was in one of her extra nasty moods. "Look mister so-and-so, don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining!"

I will record it so I can watch sans commercials and at my own pace. May have to visit the bathroom multiple times to barf

Interesting to see that it wasn't the men who stood up to Lance, but rather the women: Betsy, Juliette Macur, Emma O'Reilly.

Maybe the male cyclists OD's on estrogen after all those visits to gynecologists.

I will be asleep whilst it's on but I look forward to catching up on the Clinic's critique of this crapfest when I get to work that morning

Former Tour cyclist Matt DeCanio thinks Lance Armstrong will use his interview with Oprah Winfrey to "manipulate people's opinions".
Armstrong, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the sport's governing body, following a report by the US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada), will appear on Winfrey's OWN network on Thursday, 17 January.
DeCanio says Armstrong "will cry" in the 90-minute interview in a "last-ditch" effort to gather public support.
