A few years ago there was a TV show entitled “My Name is Earl” about a lowlife (played by Jason Lee) who goes around righting all the wrongs he’s done to other folks in his life to improve his karma.

Watching the Lance Armstrong “worldwide exclusive” interview the past couple of nights, I couldn’t help …

JonStewart

Apparently we’re really not going to find out exactly what Lance Armstrong told Oprah Winfrey until Thursday, when the show airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network – OWN.

Armstrong says he doped; now tell us something we didn’t know

Although the interview won’t be televised until Thursday, the story is already out: Lance Armstrong admitted to Oprah Winfrey on Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career, even before he had cancer.

If he choked on the words, it might be because he never thought he’d hear himself admit to it.

Lance Armstrong’s first appearance will be — where else — on Oprah!

Oprah Winfrey

With the many accomplished cycling journalists of many nationalities who have followed Lance Armstrong’s career, who better to get the first interview since his downfall than hard-hitting investigative reporter Oprah Winfrey.

With CNN’s Larry King retired now, I suppose Winfrey is the best choice for Armstrong to spin his story. He appears next Thursday on …

Lance Armstrong still appearing on magazine covers

Texas Monhtly Lance Armstrong Bum Steer

It seems that I couldn’t get away from Lance Armstrong’s piercing gaze staring out at me from the local magazine rack over the past decade.

He regularly appeared on Bicycling, Outdoors, and Men’s Journal, as well as the scandal sheets like the National Examiner.

He’s back, even after his fall from grace. Now, however, he’s …
