  Drug Use in Sports.
Hmm I seem to have misplaced the spec sheet for your mountain bike. By the way, the new wheels for your road bike, are either of them the no-spoke type like I saw on Floyd Landis's bike? I forget which day it was, mountains or time trial.

Boy was I SHOCKED when I received Friday's paper. Landis used performance enhancing drugs the day he blew by everyone on the mountain? Who is to say his body did not somehow respond to the mental and emotional signals sent out by his brain to allow his body to respond the way it did?

As far as testing for excess testosterone, I bet you would find an excess amount in more than a few inmates here if the body compensates for lack of intelligence by producing more testosterone. HA HA.

I will be following this story for sure. As far as me not caring about the Tour de France, I admit I am certainly not as up on it as you are, but have been reading the daily articles and enjoyed the article in the NY Times Sunday Magazine on Floyd and his hip problems and how much of that is actual and what information they "leak" to fake out the other riders. See there is a mind game to this thing, maybe he just got his whole body to be in sync at the same time and that is the story.

One would think that knowing if you win that day you are going to be tested, you would not be stupid enough to use something that would show up in a test; then again, that is what he is saying is he not? Why would I use something knowing I was going be tested? Time will tell. Maybe this year’s race will be the one the drug screeners won?

And then Gatlin tests positive. I like his quote, "I cannot account for these results, because I have never knowingly used any banned substance or authorized anyone else to administer such a substance to me." Sounds like some wiggle room there. Gatlin says to his trainer, hey if I do not know what is in the drink or food you prepare for me, and I am not authorizing you to give me banned substances, but hey shit happens when I am asleep don't it.

Now Landis is saying maybe it was the alcohol he drank? The plot thickens. What's next? Tiger has had a "Six Million Dollar Man" arm that enables his amazing swings? And what about Michele Wie (the teenager trying to make the men's golf tour)? Maybe she is really a transsexual, or at this point a pre-op like some of the "boys" I met along my travels through the prison system? Urgh.

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?
