Armstrong Apologizes to Livestrong, but Not for Drugs

A source has told the AP that Lance Armstrong apologized to the Livestrong staff "for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to the group about using banned drugs." That confession is allegedly going to come later, in the form of an interview with Oprah Winfrey. Armstrong spent years warding off allegations of a massive doping scheme before the Tour de France stripped him of his seven medals last year. He's continued to insist on his innocence but texted the AP, "I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I'll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That's all I can say." Time will tell just how much of a confession Oprah, afamed confession-wrangler, can extract from him ...

WHY would Lance Armstrong apologize to Livestrong, or anyone else for that matter, for "drugs"? He never took drugs. He utilized blood doping. Drugs are not involved in blood doping. However, freshly oxygenated blood, a potential advantage over other athletes who do not use such tactics, is involved. (Keyword: potential.)
