NEW DELHI - Mike Fennell has had to endure lengthy grilling over poor attendance, food quality, the state of venues and transportation problems at these Commonwealth Games.
On Thursday, the president of the Commonwealth Games Federation had a question of a different sort. And he handled it with aplomb.
Asked whether he could respond to newspaper reports that used condoms were blocking toilets at the athletes village, Fennell said: "I think that is a very positive story that athletes are being responsible."
He said that the issue had been controversial in the past "but promoting safe sex is a very responsible thing to do."
Dumb jocks. You supposed to wear them.
