Who watched the Lance Armstrong interview with Oprah this week?
I sure as heck did!
Because I am a believer until the bitter end. I believe in goodness until the proof is on my doorstep. Like a fool.
I could care less about riding bikes. And even about Lance, himself. But I had the hardest time wrapping my mind around Lance getting away with doping for that many years, in that many high profile races, and with that many people around him. I just didn't believe it.
So the interview was in two parts. Want to know why?
Because Lance is a boooooring interview!
Good golly, he is not that exciting of a person. He talks in circles. Does a lot of the self ask questions. You know, "Why did I do that? Good questions. ...." Where he asks himself questions. And just sort of talks forever to say absolutely nothing.
Oprah must have been bored out of her gourd. And annoyed. She had to re-ask questions a good bit. I'm sure she was thinking, "just answer the damn question so we can all go home, Lance!"
And pu-leeze...you can't run in a 10K or the Chicago Marathon? Who the heck cares?! #richmaddiddrugsproblems Grow up. That's not a real problem. Holy dumb complaint!
What annoyed me the most was how smug he was. He had such a false humility about him. Gag!
I don't believe he is sorry. Not one skinny bit.
But that's just me. I'm curious to know what others thought. News media seemed rather praise-worthy of the interview but I am not sure if the praise was for Oprah, the topic or Lance.
