Well go ahead and fire me from my job
But there's-a one little thing you ain't gonna rob
That's my freedom and my liberty
Well I ain't gonna piss in no jar!
Them evil peckerheads, they done gone way too far
-Mojo Nixon, "I Ain't Gonna Piss in No Jar"
Head over to Puck Daddy and read the most inspiring/infuriating story of the year.
Puck Daddy's personal hero of the day: Florian Busch, a German national hockey player for Polar Bears Berlin, who has received a two-year ban from the Court of Arbitration for Sport because he chose to "relax" with his girlfriend rather than take a doping test in March 2008.
The AP story includes German Coach Uwe Krupp's admission that Busch was sharing "a private moment" with his girlfriend when the anti-doping officials arrived unannounced.
Uh HELL YEAH. Herr Busch, you are a hero. Your editor must admit he holds heretical opinions about certain kinds of doping in sports, but he shan't bother you with them right now. Point is this dude chose quality time with the girlfriend over taking a drug test (administered by people breaking into his house) and now he's been suspended for it, despite testing negative when he finally took a non-cockblocking test.
From the AP report:
The fight against doping has stepped up in recent years, leading to complaints from some athletes and sporting bodies that controls have become too intrusive.
