"That rock star comment was supposed to be metaphoric."

From the archives at BKW, on the topic of Tom Boonen and cocaine:

” …To be fair, a cyclist of Boonen’s stature in Belgium is a rock star, which is a sort of demi-god, and like other figures of mythical status can generally get away with acts that would be criminal by mortal standards. Think Apollo.

A Belgian King of the Classics. Yes, he’s supposed to drive a Porsche. And yes, he’s supposed to get stopped for speeding; he’s a bike racer! But cocaine? That rock star comment was supposed to be metaphoric. Oops.
