    Hey, Happy Heretic....yes, it's intrusive, but I guess you've never had your kid beaten out for a $200,000 College Athletic Scholarship by a kid who's parents spent $16,000 on illegal, banned performance-enhancing drugs for their kid. (blinded to the questionable long-term effects on kid)
    The stakes are many-fold higher for any professional "sports", which now include Olympic events. Loudly submitting to the intrusiveness also quite enhances their "Product Endorsement Image" Value.
    I wonder what types of Products, Consulting firms, or Destination Resorts want to cash in on advertising Lindsey's choice of consorts.

    I disagree with HV Heretic. I think it is refreshing that a sport and it's players understand the danger of performance enhancing drugs not only to the athlete but to the integrity of the sport. Sure it's intrusive and not fun, but it keeps the sport clean.

    Other sports are not clean. Baseball is perhaps the joke that HVH talks about. Very few records are really valid anymore. Since the McGuire/Sosa/Bonds "juiced" home run era, there is no creditability in the sport. The players even have a union that does all it can to block drug testing. Someday they should have a record for the most drugs used ever without getting caught.

    Here is a big shout for a sport and it's participants who understand and protect the integrity of their sport.

    What a joke, and how intrusive. Why someone would subject themselves to this kind of oversight for sports is beyond me.
