Weekend Open Thread
Lance Armstrong, Part 2. Thursday's interview didn't seem to resonate favorably with too many people. Did they even tune in again for Part II? I did. It was like a deja-vu of John Edwards admitting his affair (but denying paternity.)
It seems to me this interview is part of some legal-related master plan, as opposed to personal redemption or being able to compete again. I don't think it's just the Floyd Landis case, but I have no idea what else it might be. Some lawyers who have represented other athletes share their thoughts here.

On another matter: the federal terrorism case against Izhar Khan tossed by a Miami judge yesterday: How weak was the Government's evidence? Here's the court order granting the judgment of acquittal, the facts are on pages 4 to 7.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
