Floyd's Organism

Floyd Landis denies accusations of doping. Speaking at a news conference in Madrid, Landis said the testosterone was "absolutely natural and produced by my own organism".

His own organism, huh? I have this mental picture of a reptile tank in his rec room with a little creature roaming around in it. Maybe its small enough that he can slip it down his cycling shorts while he's racing. Every couple of miles or so it bites him on the thigh, injecting some testosterone to keep him going.

In any case, the point is the same: whether he owns the organism or he just borrowed it from his coach, it doesn't make it right.
