Wow, what a difference a few months can make.  It looks like after being publicly disgraced and banned from cycling for life, Lance Armstrong is considering confessing to doping.  By admitting his guilt, Armstrong is hoping that his lifetime ban from cycling can be reduced.  In order for Armstrong to even possibly be allowed to race again, he would have a lot of confessing to do including how he doped, who helped him, and how he hid it for so long.  Many people are trying to persuade the once beloved athlete to come forward including those involved with his old charity LiveStrong.  I think that Armstrong should confess, but the lifetime ban should stay in place.  I always rooted for the guy and what he stood for, but knowing that it was all false is pretty disappointing.  Here is my ruling: Stay off the bike, but let him get involved with LiveStrong again.
