Anti-Doping "News"

Sports Illustrated's "The 10 Spot" notes the trend towards children's books "written" by sports stars, and suggests some ideas. They put forth the following for Floyd Landis:
In the deposed Tour de France champ's Is That a Whisker on My Chin? the teen-aged protagonist starts to undergo "changes," as a perfectly natural surge of testosterone helps turn him into a man but skews his doping tests in a medically plausible way. Qualifies as both young-adult fiction and fantasy.
Perfect snark.
