U.S. Cycling Team Wears Masks in Bejing

Aren’t they acting slightly dramatic? The United States Olympic Committee issued the masks and advised American athletes to don them while walking around Bejing. These germophobes are taking an extreme measure to preserve their lungs. Lance Armstrong wouldn’t wear a mask, because he’s tough.

This is especially bad P.R. for the city with this hypochondriac reaction to the pollution. One of the cyclists Mike Friedman said:

“Why we wore the masks is simple: pollution. When you train your whole life for something, dot all your I’s and cross all your T’s, why wouldn’t you be better safe than sorry?

“They have pollution in Los Angeles, and if the Olympics were in Los Angeles, we would probably wear these masks, too.”
