who is sane learns not to be as fanatical as the religiously converted about their sporting paramours if one seeks not to be heckled and mocked like über-militant Lance lovers on Twitter. What we have opted to do is slow the pictorial queue to once or twice per week for our devoted—thank you!—subscribers. We know our snarky-esque devotion will be subject to slings and arrows of “[h]ow can you heart a [cycling] doper?” but, come on, there is something shady in all those other sports getting faster, higher, and stronger every year and it is not due to the equipment (re: tennis anyone?).
