Rock (Not) Racing

Rock Racing's proven and suspected dopers -- Tyler Hamilton, Santiago Botero and Oscar Sevilla -- have been kicked out of the Tour of California because they're all still under a cloud. Their team owner, Michael Ball, tried to jump to their defense. Ha.
"When you have adversity, it brings a team closer together and makes them stronger," said the nouveax riche blue-jeans baron. "If my guys could never race again, I'd still pay them and send them into the city to tell children that there are better things to get involved in than drugs or gangs."
Wait a sec.
Rock Racing is a gang. Ball sure wants us to think so.
And the only reason he could hire three former continental stars to compete on a domestic U.S. team is because drug abusers are out of fashion among most of the rest of the UCI teams.
There is a lot of material to work with in the above. So I'm passing it on to someone who isn't overworked and overdue for bed.
Like Ball, I give and I give.
