What a big surprise.

Or as Gomer Pyle would say Surprise surprise.

Surprised that Floyd Landis admits to doping during most of his career. Only naive people think the upper echelon of endurance sports are totally clean. And yes, I’m talking about triathlon as well. It was after all the sport with the most positive but thanks to a Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) not positive tests a few years ago.

But endurance sports aren’t the only dirty sports. Track and Field, especially the field part. I personally know two field people who have been popped for drug use over the years. The NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and any other league has people using.

So if you are surprised, I’m surprised by that.
