Sports headlines

Some of the sports headlines I saw today and yesterday...

I have't listened to it yet, but David promised to rant about this on today's edition of The Spokesmen cycling podcast. In my view, the fact that three people were caught doping and ejected during the race is evidence that the system is working. When was the last time a ball player was shadowed by chaperons and marched into a locker room for a surprise drug test immediately prior to a game?

In San Francisco, a proposal to replace standard parking meters with new electronic multi-space meters would reduce the amount of available bike parking. See the article:

Thanks for that story, Ed. "Bicycle Stylist"?

The proposal to turn turn existing parking meters into art reminds me of a friend who's the director of Art In Public Places for a city in Colorado. Many of the bike racks in her city are installed as public sculpture and funded by her office as functional art.
