And Furthermore -- Lance Armstrong

During the Oprah interview, Lance Armstrong talked about Betsy Andreu.  She is the wife of Frankie Andreu, Armstrong's former teammate.  She testified that, in 1996, while she was lying in a hospital bed, Armstrong told his doctor that he was doped.

In retaliation, Armstrong and his goons attacked her.  She claims they called her a bitch, said she was crazy, blackballed her husband's career, and even left a voicemail that said they hoped "somebody breaks a baseball bat over your head."

A direct quote from Armstrong about this, said with a smirk at the end --

"I did call her crazy.  I did.  I did.  I think she'd be OK with me saying this, I said, 'Listen, I called you crazy.  I called you a bitch.  I called you all of these things.  But I never called you fat.'"

So if you want to know if Lance Armstrong is truly sorry and looking to make amends, just remember this -- part of his contrition is to make a fat joke about former friend and associate he harassed on national television.

...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm done.
