WILL LANCE “RIDE” AGAIN?

     He did it.  Lance Armstrong “doped.”  After denials for years.  After being stripped of his Tour De France titles.  After being dropped by his sponsors.  He did it.  And told OPRAH all about it in an interview that will air on OWN this Thursday.  Before the interview, he issued an apology to the staff at Livestrong, for putting the charity he founded to help cancer survivors at risk and said he would to restore its reputation.

     My question is, “why now?”  Because with the admission will come some potential legal ramifications.  Did Armstrong’s doping defraud the government and violate a contract he had with the US Postal Service which sponsored his team to the tune of $30 million?  But my bigger question- is this Lance Armstrong’s first step to some sort of personal redemption?  I’ve heard talk of his desire to “ride again.”  Does he deserve the opportunity to try and make it right, by DOING it right?  Armstrong’s wrong doings  have been called the “most sophisticated” doping program in cycling history.  Can it be all be forgiven with admissions and a desire to right so many wrongs?

     America loves its heroes, but they can also turn the quickest of cold shoulders to them if they feel they been deceived, and cheated after discovering that the adulation for said hero was never truly deserved.

     After OPRAH  wrapped the more than 2 1/2 hour interview with Lance Armstrong, she tweeted, “He came READY!”  I guess the bigger question is “do we care?”

REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

"It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
