The announcement of Floyd’s second drug test clouded the day. We cheered for him, a California resident, as winner of the Tour of California 2006. He inspired us with effort, tenacity with a disintegrating hip, and humble beginnings. We delighted watching Landis win the Tour de France 2006.
May he be vindicated. I offer the benefit of the doubt, and avoid other annoying problems: betraying a team, sponsors, family, and fans. When does reality preclude hopeful hearts? Not today.
Always tell the truth, Floyd. If you are guilty, can you swing a bat? Other professional sports are more forgiving.
