It seems a shame to have created a sports tag and then never use it, for no better reason than all sports everywhere are shit. With this in mind I present this: the letter Michael Phelps should have written after being caught smoking pot. It's a pretty good assault on drug laws, institutional injustice, and hypocritical busy-bodies, which is an impressive amount to cram in. And I have to admit, the "dangers of professional athleticism" isn't really something I've thought of before.
There are a few things in the letter I might take exception to, if I sat down and parsed it all, but as a rant it holds together pretty well.
h/t to LGM.
