If the Olympic movement is away from naked wrestlers to nearly naked volleyball players, who am I to complain?

Lance Armstrong says 'it's true, Oprah, I'm Manti Te'o's online girlfriend."

 

In the Weird Weird World of sports, Lance Armstrong’s doping confession to Oprah Winfrey was upstaged by news of Notre Dame star Manti Te’o's cyber girlfriend.
