It's official: he's insane
Someone put this madman away ... or put him in charge of the Olympics!posted by Suzanne Nossel on 08.12.04 at 05:53 PM
why didn't anyone else think of this before?
The simple way to weed out athletes who are on perf enhancing drugs is simple.
It will be very easy to tell who's on the stuff and who's not.
A big ratings boost is merely a collateral effect.posted by: Dave on 08.12.04 at 05:53 PM [permalink]
I'm all in favor of this.
It needs to be like Saturday Night Live once conceived of it: The All-Drug Olympics.
We can have a normal, drug-free games, then the next week all the juiced folks out there can compete hopped up on anything they choose.

They handicap horses don't they? No, I guess that's they shoot horses, don't they, not shoot up. And this may be the last drug olympics. The next one they'll be worrying more about genetic enhancement. There may even be some of that in this one and it's untraceable.posted by: chuck rightmire on 08.12.04 at 05:53 PM [permalink]

Somebody did - Kurt Vonnegut. Although I doubt he was thinking about chemical capitalism in athletics at the time he wrote it...posted by: Mitch H. on 08.12.04 at 05:53 PM [permalink]
The problem here is that some athletes will be too poor to afford good drugs. So the United Nations needs to establish a fund that will pay for the drugs of all Third Worlders or others who cannot afford them. Once everyone has access to drugs, the playing field will be level, so to speak.posted by: Bruce Bartlett on 08.12.04 at 05:53 PM [permalink]
