    Regardless of whether Kloden may or may not be guilty, it's that time of the year to break out the funtacular Excuse-O-Matic! Pick one or more as needed:

    A) "It wasn't me. It was my twin / unborn chimeric twin / stunt double / security look-a-like decoy..."

    B) "I didn't actually transfuse, I only planned to transfuse."

    C) "The room was dark, nobody saw nuttin'..."

    D) "Everyone else was doing it, so I had to do it just to keep up."

    E) "Team management made us do it."

    F) sob sob "I'm so sorry, I'll never do it again, blah blah blah" sob sob

    G) "Those were just vitamins, and they must have been tainted by the manufacturer."

    The timing of this report certainly won't help Astana's hunt for additional sponsors.

    But you forgot so many good ones like:

    1) "My doctor prescribed me female fertility medication for a personal medical problem"
    2) (My personal favorite) "I drank a beer last night, which must have caused my epitestosterone:testosterone level to be off this morning"
    3) "You would too if you grew up in [fill in the former soviet republic] and your other career option was to stand in a bread line for 10 hours a day"
    4) "I'm from East Germany, nuff said"

    What other good ones am I missing?

    I would be more surprised if Kloden's name never had any doping allegations tied to it. If for no other reasons than association (T Mob days and the vino version of astana), and his complete pedaling like a sack of potatoes and all of a sudden tour contender type of form variance. ho hum.
