Breaking news? In Oprah interview, Lance Armstrong reportedly admits to doping

http://twitter.com/#!/Oprah/status/290958167955869696

The interview apparently went on for a full two-and-a-half hours and will be edited down to 90 minutes, but fortunately, the only thing that matters has leaked, and it fits easily in a single tweet. According to an AP source, Armstrong confessed to Oprah that he did indeed use performance-enhancing drugs. Following the earlier tearful stops on his apology tour, who expected that bombshell, aside from every person on earth?

Kobe, Lakers pushed to the brink by Durant’s heroics

http://twitter.com/#!/ESPN_Colin/status/204147908268920832

NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant proved once again that he has ice running through his veins, hitting a game-tying three-pointer in the face of Metta World Peace to help lead his Thunder over the Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals, 103-100.

The victory gives Oklahoma City a 3-1 advantage over Los Angeles with the game heading back to the Ford Center on Monday.

The Twitterverse is generally in agreement — the Lakers are done.

Lakers just can't catch their breath, or Thunder, at finish http://t.co/qdwyfsi2

Good Morning. Just awakened from my food coma! Lakers lost right!?

— Warren Sapp (@WarrenSapp) May 20, 2012

As great as Kobe was tonight, he has to take some blame for the Lakers going away from what gave them that lead in the 1st place.

Kevin Durant + Russel Westbrook = 68 pts alone against the lakers #OklahomaCityThunder only thing in the way is the Spurs!

Good morning, unless you are in L.A., where the proper word is mourning. Your Sunday playoff roundup: http://t.co/DcAyVUCe

But there's always a few hopefuls in the pack.

If you were to ask – what franchise would you pick to come back from a 3-1 deficit? Everyone picks the Lakers, so why not this year? 🙂

I still got faith in my lakers

When They Questioned His Military Record, This Man Did Something Truly Horrific

When 21-year-old Marina Volk went to a dinner party in Tver, Russia, she had no idea that she would be the only survivor of a massacre carried out by 45-year-old Sergey Yegorov.

The only reason she’s alive today is because when Yegorov used a semi automatic shotgun to murder the 10 other people there, including her boyfriend, 34-year-old Vyacheslav Savelyev, she hid under a duvet and called the police. Nine people were killed.

Eleven people in total attended the dinner party, including Yegorov, Volk, Savelyev, Savelyev’s 92-year-old grandmother, 49-year-old Ivan Zagornyan (the owner of the house), 62-year-old Lyudmila Vysotskaya, 50-year-old Alexander Redin, 45-year-old Pavel Smirnova, 48-year-old Vera Smirnova, Oleg Demchenko, and Svetlana Sorokina.

When police later caught Yegorov and asked why he gunned down all these people, he said, “I killed all of them because they said that I had never served in the air assault forces. I told them that I did serve but they were laughing at me.”

Yegorov had been drunk when the dinner guests began questioning whether he’d ever actually served in the army and if he was a “real man.” That’s when he left the table, grabbed his gun, and opened fire.

“I saw him finishing them, heard their last gasps for air. Then he was washing [his] hands. I heard it all,” Volk said.

Yegorov reportedly tried to force his final victim to dig her own grave, then shot her point blank when she refused and placed her body in the trunk of a nearby car.
