    Pretty Ignorant Article About Cyclists!

    http://sports.yahoo.com/sc/news?slug...nnsi&type=lgns

    I think if you're going to say all cyclists are dirty & dopers, than you have to say that about all football, baseball, soccer, hockey, basketball, etc. players. So some do, the entire sport does? The guy that wrote that article editorialized way too much

    I read this and was a bit surprised, given the writer.

    E.M. Swift is Eddie Swift, former goalie for the Princeton University hockey team...he was the starter when I lived in that area and was playing HS hockey and knew him as an acquaintence. He has become an excellent (IMO) writer. This article seems out of character for what I've read from him the in the past.

    It was pretty obvious this was an editorial not strict news reporting. I can see from your image you that you definetly didn't like what/who he was implicating.

    I guess all the repeated brain injuries from playing hockey on a panty waist team like Princeton got to him.
    Just kidding, a little of his own medicine.
