Andreu spoke with Steve Innskeep on NPR's Morning Edition this morning. You can listen to the interview online. He blatantly states that this admission is only about himself.
My take: this is a means of bringing down the credibility of Armstrong. Plain and simple. Why speak on this now? What good does it do?

The Nike Gridiron commercials with Michael Vick, Brian Urlacher, Urban Meyer, Don Shula, and several other people associated with football.
I also like the Southwest Airlines centered around football. The one woman uses a towel and snaps another woman on the behind with a towel, hilarious! Well, all of the SW Airlines commercials are pretty good.
Other good ones:
Men of the Square Table - despite being dubbed Man Laws
Under Armour - the one with the kids on the bus
Gatorade - the one with Kevin Garnett, Peyton Manning, and several other sports stars. They have little kid voices with big heads. Too funny!
I'm sure I'll see more as the season progresses.

When I got in from church this morning I flipped the television to Fox NFL Sunday. What the heck? Where was James Brown? He was the glue that held those other guys in check! Joe Buck is the new host. We'll see...
The New Orleans Saints beat the Cleveland Browns 19-14 in Cleveland. The Saints run game looked really good. Reggie Bush, the #2 overall pick in this year's draft, looked really as did Duece McAllister. Two players left the game due to injury, Mike Karney and Keith Joseph. Let's hope Kareny's injury is not to serious. He is needed in the backfield.
Overall, I was impressed with Drew Brees. Next week the Saints travel to Green Bay. A quick look at the scoreboard tells me that the Packers lost to Chicago today. I wonder if we'll pull out a win at Lambeau Field next week.
The nightcap has Indianapolis on the road at the New York Giants. It is called the battle of the brothers, Peyton Manning and Eli Manning. The Colts are leading 16-7 at the half. This should be a pretty good game in the second half.
I went away to college, the University of LA-Monroe, and attended home and away games there. Grambling was just a hop, skip, and a jump away and I found myself there some Saturdays (my brother was in school there).
I moved to the ultimate football state, Texas, a year out of college. The greater Houston area has plenty of football with several universities and an NFL team*. I was in Houston until 2002 and then migrated to Athens, GA, home of the University of Georgia (UGA).
I found myself in Athens as a graduate student at UGA studying toward a PhD (which I've since earned). I really got back into the college game living Athens with the Georgiadogs. The excitement in this town on Saturdays is just electric! It is simply amazing! I love it!
Living in Athens, I didn't follow the professional game a lot. For one, college football is king here. Secondly, most Sundays I was doing work for my degree. Now that I'm finished with school, I want to get back into the NFL game.
I recently upgraded my television and I subscribed to NFL Sunday Ticket. I'm looking forward to the games this season on Saturday and Sunday.
*The year I moved to Houston, 1995, it was the final year that the Houston Oilers were in the city.
