This interview was conducted about three hours after the end of the tour…this is just the 45 second version.  CNN has the full 3:51 version but it’s not a version we can embed here thanks to the scripting.

Takeaway Lance quotes (some from the longer version):

“Well, I wanted to come in first. But sometimes in sports, there’s somebody that’s better.”

“A 38 year old man does not wake up like a 28 year old man.”

…and from Dr. Gupta:

“A couple things worth pointing out, Lance’s heart and lungs are different than most people. He pumps about 9 gallons per minute versus 5 gallons for a normal healthy 20 year old.  Also, with every breath he takes he gets about twice as much oxygen as anyone else, which could be advantageous.”

Gee…do ya think?

Isn’t it about time Sanjay Gupta conceded Lance used him to peddle the myth his Tour victories were clean wins thanks exclusively to a 9-gallon heart that of course beat all those supposedly drug-free losers cursed with the 8-gallon and 7-gallon hearts?
