Triathlon is Like Russian Roulette?

Holy moly, Loretta! You've got to be kidding! Russian Roulette?

Yes, it is, according to one Scott Stringer, who apparently is something called a Manhattan Borough President.

If you haven't heard, two athletes died during the Nautica New York City Triathlon last weekend (article here). Now there's no doubt that's a horrible tragedy. But can we have just a little perspective here?

Meth is like Russian Roulette.

Smoking is like Russian Roulette.

Hell, even driving is a bit like Russian Roulette.

But triathlon is absolutely, positively, nothing like Russian Roulette.

Yes, that's a photo of Mr. Stringer all his glory.
