I have that problem too but it's because I'm incredibly macho!


Could be, but I strongly advise you to check your gnads for tumor.

God to the rescue!

"I'm not concerned. I think God is allowing us to go through this so
that Floyd's glory is even greater," Arlene Landis said.

How can his glory be greater if he's stripped of his title and money?

I don't think it's precisely accurate to say that he has failed a drug
test. His urine sample for testosterone came back outside acceptable
levels. The result requires his suspension, but further medical
investigation is required before he is declared positive:

"The presence of a testosterone (T) to epitestosterone (E) ratio
greater than six (6) to one (1) in the urine of a competitor
constitutes an offence unless there is evidence that this ratio is due
to a physiological or pathological condition, e.g. low epitestosterone
excretion, androgen producing tumour, enzyme deficiencies.

"In the case of T/E greater than 6, it is mandatory that the relevant
medical authority conducts an investigation before the sample is
declared positive. A full report will be written and will include a
review of previous tests, subsequent tests and any results of endocrine
investigations. In the event that previous tests are not available, the
competitor should be tested unannounced at least once per month for
three months. The results of these investigations should be included in
the report. Failure to co-operate in the investigations will result in
declaring the sample positive"

Who in their right mind would try to compete at that level without
boosting their T/E ratio to 3.9? They should post everyone's results.

If you had even a basic understanding of the Menonite church, you
would understand her comments. She is referring to the glory as
understood from the perspective of the Kingdom of God, not in terms of
human fame. Typically, this refers to rewards in Heaven but it may
also refer to a state of spiritual grace here on Earth.

The church wont save him, if the final results are positive. Anyway, no
more of church issues in here.

Default Dope me Floyd


There once was a rider named Landis
Who upon blowing a stage said "I can't stand this!"
To get back on a roll
He swallowed one testicle whole
And said "Ah, it feels good to ride the way Lance does!"
