Likely Armstrong Confession To Happen on Oprah

There are thousands of sports writers worldwide cursing Oprah right now for scoring what could be the biggest sports exclusive since I don't know what.

After years of accusations, former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong will sit down for his first no-holds-barred interview with Oprah Winfrey at his home in Austin, Texas.

If that works/ed, then should we weigh PEDs into the mix for treatment? If there is a silver lining to this…
