Well, at least that's what a reasonable human being can ascertain.

My mother taught me to never assume anything because it just makes an ass out of female sheep, but I've never been one to follow rules.

Plus, this one seems so obvious that it's hard to avoid making the connection.

Over in Germany, a hockey player has gotten himself in trouble over a very poor choice he made. This poor choice has nothing to do with drugs or gambling, and instead has to do with (allegedly) a romp in the sack.
A German national hockey player was banned for two years after refusing to take a doping test for several hours because he was relaxing at home with his girlfriend.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport banned Florian Busch on Tuesday because he declined to immediately give a sample when German anti-doping officials arrived unannounced in March 2008.

"Florian Busch refused to submit to doping control," the court said in a statement.

Despite testing negative, he can't suit up for the Polar Bears Berlin again until February 2011.

Germany coach Uwe Krupp said Busch was sharing "a private moment" with his girlfriend when the testing team arrived.
While some, more naive, people may think that Busch was simply having a nice candlelight dinner with his significant other, I'm pretty sure the rest of us know better.

I hope whatever they were doing was fun for Busch. It's cost him two years of his hockey career, and the shelf life of a hockey player doesn't always last as long as it has for Chris Chelios.

On the bright side, it will be a long time before an athlete chooses intimacy over a drug test.
