Canadian Olympian Adam Van Koeverden writes an assertive response in the Globe and Mail newspaper to Globe and Mail columnist Cathal Kelly, regarding his assertion that drug use is almost okay and can nearly be justified, in fact he would take them to, wouldn’t you?
I’m not an Alex Rodriguez fan. I don’t care much about baseball. I’m not an expert on performance enhancing drug use in pro or amateur sport.
But a column in The Globe and Mail Thursday has inspired me to speak out. When Globe sports columnist Cathal Kelly tweeted: “Alex Rodriguez did drugs. So would I. And so would you.” I tweeted back to say that I don’t fall into that same category, but not before I read the article. I was hoping to find something satirical, something ironic, or some kind of an admission that Kelly was being facetious.
