Just when I thought the doping scandal of Lance Armstrong had become yesterday's news, I read this. A confession! Really? What? When? Why? Of course...bring it on Lance! As I said in my letter to you in October, you have so much to gain with a confession. It could be your mea culpa. Your coming out. As long, that is, as you admit you did the wrong thing, and behaved the wrong way...for most of your career. As long as you apologize to the countless people and organizations you berated, bullied and sued to prop up your now-disgraced and pummeled anti-doping image.
Lance, do the right thing. Confess. We know it will cost you a lot of money. But what is the value of a clean conscience? What is the value of looking someone straight in the eye and telling them the real truth? What is the value of being capable of openly talking about your own weaknesses? At this stage, we don't care about why you did it, we care about why you now believe it was wrong. We don't care if you want to compete again in triathlons and confessing is your only option to do this. We care that you, after all these years, want to do the right thing. Now, stand in front of the microphone...and do the right thing.
