Digital Crumble

Crumbly on the outside, sweet and squishy inside. An attempt to bake sense into my online wanderings.

“I love a good myth. (So did those guys in that bar. They ended up acknowledging the magnitude of Armstrong’s lies, but had a tough time walking away from them, though, like me, they eventually did.) And I should say, as I have here, here, and here, that I bought it all for many years, and no doubt hell also hath no fury like that of a gullible, humiliated fanboy. (You can see my original sin in the 2002 Profile of Armstrong that I wrote for the magazine.) Yet, as the world is now aware, Lance has taped a confessional interview with Oprah Winfrey in which, she made clear on CBS yesterday morning, he conceded in some way that he was a lying doper. (Who else but Oprah do you confess to if you are Lance Armstrong? In America, papal absolution wouldn’t go nearly as far.) Oprah said that, while he “did not come clean in the manner that I expected,” she was satisfied with the answers. “I don’t think ‘emotional’ begins to describe the intensity or the difficulty he experienced in talking about some of these things.”” What Lance Armstrong Did : The New Yorker
