Wow, I'd heard a lot of creative excuses before, but cyclist Alberto Contador takes the cake when suggesting how he could have tested positive for doping in his sport where drugs are omnipresent and ubiquitous. "Tainted meat." Nice.
Bike away I've got to
From the pain of climbing on two wheels
The Tour's a bear
Unless your muscles repair
And I stand more tall
When I get a dose of clenbuterol
Once I tried the meat
Now, I can't be beat
This tainted meat you've given
I go and win the Tour and then you
Take my prize and that's not nearly all
It's too bad Contador's meat was tainted. If only someone had slipped him the salami.
