Forget Lance Armstrong!


Forget Alex Rodriguez!


Their doping scandal is nothing compared to the ludicrous policies of the United States Anti-Doping Agency or the World Anti-Doping Agency. At least those athletes had a $ million reasons to “juice” up. But ice fishing?

Yes, they try hard at aiming to ensure that no competitor, no matter the scale of the competition, has an unfair advantage. It’s just that ice fishing is not considered a physical sport per se. Bill Whiteside, a previous gold medal winner from Eau Claire, Wis., said that physical strength often had little to do with fishing success. “It’s not the best athlete that usually wins the events,” he said. “A lot of times it’s the experienced older guys.” To be fair, the World Ice Fishing Championship has requested that participants get a random test. The good news is that you can still ice fish and drink.

“We do not test for beer, because then everybody would fail,” said Joel McDearmon, chairman of the United States Freshwater Fishing Federation. Up next, bodies by Budweiser people get checked for doping.
