No Excuses For Shawn Horcoff

from Jeff Miller of the OC Register,

No sabotage theories. No “flax seed oil” claims. No tales of carrying the absorbed remains of an unborn twin. That was cyclist Tyler Hamilton’s original explanation.

Melky Cabrera, now with the Chicago White Sox, once attempted to concoct an elaborate lie that involved launching a fake website in order to sell a fake supplement. But he eventually was busted by, among others, the feds.

Thankfully, Horcoff took a more direct route to his failed PED test and confessed to the mistake Tuesday, meaning this story shouldn’t become any more bizarre or unnecessarily entertaining.

As of this moment, the situation appears to be as straightforward as the 20 games and $357,526.88 Horcoff just forfeited.

For that much, the Ducks can be thankful. The circumstances certainly could be more convoluted and less savory. Just ask the Clippers and Blake Griffin.

Horcoff’s latest admirable actions, however, don’t make up for his previous regrettable ones. He erred in a major way and brought unwanted negative attention to a team that has played its way to enough embarrassment already.
