And Another Thing

Alberto Contador grimaces during the news conference in Pinto on Thursday.

Today's winning excuse comes from Alberto Contador

Say hello to Alberto Contador, your 2010 Tour de France cheater, er, winner, who's been suspended for failing a drug test during the event, but says it was because he ate some bad meat.

Comment No. 1: Shouldn't have gone for the Angus burger, dude.

Comment No. 2: A Tour de France winner showed red? I'm shocked.

Comment No. 3: Lance Armstrong continues to be the only man in cycling never to use PEDs, because he says so.

Comment No. 4: The Tour de France should just cut through the red tape and automatically suspend whoever wins as soon as he crosses the finish line. Today's time-saving tip.
