sick of doping scandals

Gatlin Tests Positive for Testosterone

Tour de France winner Floyd Landis tests positive

Both claim to be innocent. Just like Ben Johnson. Ben was lying in 1988 though I believed him at the time.

It’s sad to see the accomplishments of fantastic athletes overshadowed by media coverage of alleged doping. The clean competitors must be plenty ticked off.

Despite what Lance Armstrong says, I believe drug use is endemic in tour cycling. There is just too much smoke for there to be no fire.

Henceforth I dismiss the Tour de France as I dismiss Olympic Weight Lifting and Olympic Sprinting. “Sports” with no more credibility than World Wrestling Entertainment.
