Oprah To Find Armstrong’s Blood Bank?

He owns seven of them but it’s unlikely Lance Armstrong will wear one of his yellow jerseys when he gets interviewed by Oprah next week, priced at $51 by online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to don the lycra for the chat.

Thankfully, it looks unlikely that Armstrong will follow in the footsteps of chief Scientologist Tom Cruise and jump up and down on the couch during the much anticipated interview, with the big odds of $21 on offer for him to do so.

But what we all want to know is whether he will admit to doping, but sportsbet.com.au’s market suggests the Texan will stick to his guns, with no admission priced as the $1.67 favourite and $2.10 available for the Texan to admit to doping.

Sportsbet.com.au has a raft of other interview specials, including will Lance’s partner appear on the interview ($1.33), will Lance greet Oprah with a kiss ($1.40), will he cry during the interview ($2.80) and whether or not Oprah will find a secret blood bank in his house ($101).

“We think it’s unlikely he will go all Tom Cruise and jump up and down on the couch during the interview but one thing is for certain, she will be baying for blood,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
“Let’s at least hope he gets better fashion advice than Tiger Woods received ahead of his TV apology a while back!”

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...
