Changes caused by Armostong's admission

Postby goneriding » Mon Jan 21, 2013 11:55 am

In light of the Armstrong interviews there will be some changes made in unusual places. I came across this one from the Manly Library...

Movie rights.

Don't know whether this'll be classed as a doco, or fictional drama :P

I've found that cycling forums have become fixated on Lance Armstrong to the point where every second topic is about Lance Armstrong's doping, Lance Armstrong's admission, whether or not Lance Armstrong should have gone on Oprah, if Lance Armstrong's apology was enough, whether Lance Armstrong should be allowed to ride, etc etc etc.

Not to mention every website and blog running extended pieces on Lance Armstrong.

And the news constantly rehashing tidbits from the Lance Armstrong vs Oprah Winfrey interview.

Ehhhhhh.

I personally thought it was good he admitted it. After that, who cares. He's just another guy from that generation who doped.

Ehhhhh.

I think it's all because of the strong arm tactics used on this subject!

It was a 2.5 hour long interview... in fact you could say that it was like an interview on steroids...

I'm still wondering, Lance who? At least it diverted attention away from mandatory Lycra discussions.
