As hard as I try to tune out sports, some little silliness will always penetrate my cranial sieve. My grocer friend tipped me off to the bicycle doping scandal, and it was actually worth following, briefly. A world-class athlete is apparently gaining traction by claiming the drugs in meat he ate were responsible for his testing positive. Clearly, we’ve come a long way from the Twinkie defense. At least in the race to the bottom.
