Friday Morning Coffee Talk
Flotrack news and links for February 28th, 2014
Happy Friday Flotrack! Doesn't it feel good to say that? I can feel the cockles of my heart growing warm with joy. Hopefully this weekend is like the last one, except for all of the drama, corruption, finger-pointing, confusion, commercials, lack of answers, abundance of questions, and general decline of a sport that has so much potential.

I picked you to win this weekend, Chanelle, and you let me down. YOU LET ME DOWN. I'm not yet ready to take you back.
Performance enhancing gas? This is becoming the Mad Libs of cheating.
Never mind. This is apparently totally real and, like gluten, will be a serious concern in a few weeks.
