The Tour de France begins on Saturday, and defending champion Alberto Contador is looking to repeat.  However, his victory might be taken away from the courts, as he is defending himself against a positive doping test from last year’s tour.  Charlie Pierce talks to Bill Littlefield about Contador’s predicament, along with another drug related issue involving golfer Robert Garrigus.  In addition, Charlie gives his input on the two sport lockouts, and rails against the MLB’s plans to seize the Dodgers.
