    ...why does anyone care about doping in sports, in any manner? Seriously, I don't get it. Why should I care if Armstrong used growth hormones or whatever to win a race? Why are MLB players being hauled in front of Congress? Why is any of this in any news source outside of SportsCenter?
    This. It's just a ****ing game, there are far better ways to use Congress and our tax dollars for **** sake. Investigating accusations against athletes for using steroids doesn't even rate in the top thousand list.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Things have changed now. Then everybody was doping, almost everybody.

    So Lance Armstrong really did win it 7 times.
