    Lance Armstrong admits doping to Oprah - CBS News

    AUSTIN, TEXASA person familiar with the situation says Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey during an interview Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France.

    The admission -- made in an interview to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey's network -- was first revealed by the Associated Press and later confirmed by CBS News. Winfrey will appear on "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday to talk about the Armstrong interview.

    After the interview, Winfrey tweeted: "Just wrapped with @lancearmstrong More than 2 1/2 hours . He came READY!"

    Good thing he said so or we'd never have known. Like Jodie Foster being a lesbian.

    This admission will cost him millions. I don't know what he is thinking, but if he is thinking this is the way back into the sport, he's nuts. He will never be allowed back in the sport, and he should be banned for life anyway.

    I don't really get the whole banning of PED's thing. There are all kinds of ways to enhance your muscle growth and performance that aren't banned. Protein and creatine aren't banned substances, but they can give an athlete an edge over others when used accordingly. Prohormones and even steroids just change the hormone levels in the body and the muscles react.

    At the end of the day, there's really no difference when you consider it in a "performance enhancing" light.
