Lance Armstrong Lied In His Interview With Oprah

In perhaps the least shocking news of the 21st century, turns out Lance Armstrong lied in what he billed as his ‘come clean’ interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ray Lewis’ Deer Antler Spray, Troubled Past, and Holier-Than-Thou Histrionics Make Him Hard Hero to Root For

Enough, Ray Lewis. Enough. The deer antler velvet spray does it. You’ve officially lost us. It’s not that we don’t like the way you play linebacker. It’s not that we don’t admire the way you inspire a team, or how you’ve kept at it through challenges.
