As Expected, Lance Armstrong Admitted to Doping During an Interview With Oprah Last Night

Did you miss Oprah's interview with Lance Armstrong last night? Well, you didn't really miss much. Within the first two minutes of the interview, Oprah asked the seven-time Tour de France winner a series of yes-or-no questions about his alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs. And, he answered "yes" to all of them, confirming that he had used PEDs for a number of years in order to achieve success in cycling.

With that out of the way, Oprah then spent the next hour and change grilling Armstrong about a number of different things, including the process he used to beat the system, the attitude he took towards those who accused him of doping, and the culture of cycling. To be honest, it wasn't nearly as engaging as we thought it might be (especially when the Heat/Lakers game was on just a few channels down the dial!) but we did get to hear Armstrong refer to himself as an "arrogant prick" at one point, which was pretty nice. But, other than that, you didn't really miss a whole lot if you missed the interview. Whether you loved or hated Armstrong before last night, the interview probably wouldn't have swayed your opinion of him all that much.

That said, if you're still interested in checking out the interview today, you can do so over here. And, part two of the interview will air tonight on OWN, just in case you didn't get your fill of Armstrong yet. Who's watching?
