Q: Meat in China has PEDs? Good thing Im not in the NFL

NFL warns players that eating meat abroad could mean failed drug tests

If any NFL players were thinking about heading to China or Mexico for a vacation before training camp begins, they might want to reconsider their final destinations -- unless they're OK with going vegetarian. Apparently, by eating meat in those countries, players could be violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, which could lead to suspensions.

Wait, what?

Thanks to Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith and Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, we know that the NFL sent out a warning about "contaminated meat" in China and Mexico, reminding players that they're responsible for what they put in their bodies. So, no more vacation steak for Smith, because it could contain a substance on the NFL's banned listed.

Thanks for the heads up. If you have a few steak dinners on vacation your screwed

Groundless fear? That is a biggie when harsh substances are slipped into your food without warning, Now I seriously need to consider going vegan.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
