Tour de Roid Rage!
Mr. McMoots has been watching the Tour de France on delayed internet broadcast. I’m still looking for the thing that makes it so exciting, but that’s okay. What I’m really curious about stems from all the commentators’ talk of doping scandals, in cycling and in, um, whatever other sports have been having doping scandals lately – the hammer throw? Whatever.
There are crazy medical risks and side effects associated with athletic pharmaceuticals, but it’s not like we ever show much concern for medical risks taken by other members of society in the name of fame and/or money; it seems unfair to limit our concern to athletes. I for one would quite like to watch other people explore the limits of the drug-enhanced human body. Why aren’t there sports leagues where doping is openly accepted practice?
