South Korean striker fails PED test, blames 'mustache growing cream'

Thursday June 11th, 2015

South Korea's soccer team had its lineup all set for its match against the United Arab Emirates on Thursday when it was informed that striker Kang Soo-il would not be allowed to play due to a failed drug test.

Which performance-enhancing drug enticed the soccer player into breaking the sport's doping rules? Well, according to Kang, the positive test was caused by a mustache growing cream.

That is right, not only is there such a thing as mustache growing cream, but also people actually admit to using it.

Granted the national team hopeful could just be lying to cover his tracks, but what is more embarrassing: people thinking you used steroids, or people thinking you use mustache growing cream?
