No more defense of LA.
I watched that 30-30 series on ESPN last night, the one about Ben Johnson, the 100 meter champ who set a world record of 9.79 in the Olympics then was busted for doping a day later. What an eye opener! I used to think Johnson was a maverick, a cheater, and a bad guy in general. How naive I was. Turns out he was just doing what everyone else did and had the audacity to beat Carl Lewis regularly. So Lewis made it his mission to get the guy busted. Turns out old Carl was a doper too.
What a jerk...Lewis was never a likeable athlete.
