The “End” of the LanceWrong Saga
So, it’s happening. Just one more day and the last pillar in Lance’s house of cards comes tumbling down. Mostly. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for the big shebang and can get a jump on everyone else by reading this portion of the transcript, smuggled out by someone on set during the interview. It’s where Lance really lays it all out. (Spoiler, not really).
Yeah, it’s a total joke, but hey, if we have to be exposed to this crap one final time, let’s at least have some fun with it. I mean, come on, this is the Super Bowl of spectacle for athletes. This is OUR time. Admit it, you’ve had to grit your teeth as your facebook feed gets drowned in cryptic Downtown Abbey play by plays or god awful Honey Boo Boo references…or cats for chrisesakes. Cats!!!
Now, we get to have our fun, coming up with every possible alternative to the LiveStrong moniker, self-righteously I-Told-You-So’ing in all caps, and generally giving the rest of society a taste of their own medicine.
Whether you wanted Lance to be clean all this time or just KNEW he was full of crap, or EPO’s or whatever magic concoction gets you over those mountains, grab yourself a water bottle and bowl of Sport Beans and let’s watch our own personal Donald Trump tap dance his way around all the pending lawsuits knocking on his door. Then let’s move on to building a culture of truly clean athletes.
The interview airs over two nights starting Thursday at 9 ET on the Oprah Winfrey Network and finishes on Friday. It’s also streaming here.
