This week’s episode of Hard Knocks captured linebacker Brian Cushing barfing during practice. He barfed four times in one sitting.
In sports, everyone is a winner-some people just win better than others. Like our nation's poor, overtrained athletes like Brian Cushing, who says he flunked his drug test only because he worked out so hard.
"Memo to 18 AP voters who let Brian Cushing keep his award, despite clear PED use: you should be drug-tested yourselves," Sports Illustrated's Austin Murphy tweeted yesterday. "What a f'ing joke." Sigh.
The AP took its ridiculous revote, and 21 of 39 voters decided to feign outrage that the defensive ROY used a banned substance in a sport that'd look like Ultimate Frisbee if it weren't for "banned" substances. He's still ROY, though. [NYT]
The AP wants to reclaim Brian Cushing's Defensive Rookie of the Year Award, because giving prizes to drug cheats makes them look foolish. Almost as foolish as calling takebacks on meaningless post-season awards.
Remember all the fuss recently about certain draft prospects who tested positive for drugs at the scouting combine and how it made everyone sad for today's youth? Yeah, none of those guys actually tested positive.
