"It's a guy who expected to get everything he wanted...it's inexcusable."
Why would you donate $100k to an organization to don't like?
Now Lance is talking in the third person
On suing people who he knew were telling the truth: "It's a guy who expected to get whatever he wanted and to control every outcome. It's inexcusable. I understand there are people who will never forgive me. I have started that process. Part of that process is to speak with those people and say that I'm sorry."
Going back to the UCI donation: Armstrong just stated he was retired and had money. He was retired in 2005 when the check cleared, but McQuaid has stated that the money was pledged in 2002, when Armstrong was active.
"To be honest, Oprah, we sued so many people ... "
I wish I could favorite or like posts.
Consensus here is that Oprah's questioning is exceeding expectations.
Oprah is clearly doping, fellas.
Did anyone hear Frankie's interview with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio on Tuesday? He was livid, called Armstrong a "bad guy."
Armstrong won't talk about details of phone call with Betsy Andreu or the hospital room.
On whether Betsy was telling truth about Indiana hospital room in 1996: "I'm not going to take that on."
Have you made peace? "No, because they've been hurt badly."
At peace with Andreus?" No. They've been hurt too badly. A 40-minute conversation is not enough."
Surreal moment of the night — Armstrong told Betsy Andreu, "I called you crazy. I called you a bitch. But I never called you fat."
Look. he never called her fat. OK?
@Matt -- Reputation restored. Are we done here?
Did the handlers just head out for donuts or something?
I am thoroughly impressed with Oprah's tactics.
Admits the comeback was the big mistake ...
But when does Jon Stewart get to take a shot?
Anyone know what the legal catch is with not being able to confirm/deny the hospital conversation?
If the comeback hadn't happened, RadioShack wouldn't have happened. Landis wouldn't have allegedly asked for a job, been turned down, and gone public.
A lot of chatter about Armstrong's awkward smiling. It's clear he's a man who is not used to being wrong, or admitting to mistakes, let alone admitting to massive character flaws on national TV.
On to Floyd Landis... Worst liar ever.
I was 3 miles away in Bend, Oregon, during that Landis interview, the day after he'd ridden the Cascade Classic prologue in a T-shirt. He left that night. Very weird.
LA: "The comeback didn't sit well with Floyd."
If LA had given Landis a job, none of this would have ever happened ...
15 minutes to go tonight. What else will we see?
Do you remember when you heard Floyd was going to talk? "Hotel room at Tour of California [in 2010]. He kept sending me text messages saying he was going to post everything on YouTube. I told him 'Do what you have to do, just leave me alone.'"
I do remember that night. Same hotel. Driving to the start the next morning was surreal.
