Why I Won't Watch The Lance Armstrong Interview

Lance Armstrong sat down with Oprah Winfrey this past Monday and taped an interview that will be televised tonight on Winfrey's network. Though she hasn't divulged what Armstrong told her, sources say the disgraced cycling legend confesses to using performance-enhancing drugs.

Will I watch? After much thought, I've decided not to.

If Armstrong hadn't publically denounced brave cyclists who came forward with the truth, I might. If he hadn't attacked agencies investigating the truth, I might. If I didn't see this interview as simply a means to help him compete again, I might.

But he did and I do, and so I'm choosing not to watch this public campaign to restore his image.

Will you tune in to the interview?

P.S. Looking for a hero? Here's a growing list of men and women who are at the top of their game in the sport of mountain biking.
