The upside of the Floyd Landis illegal testosterone story is that the French may have spiked his pee.

doping seem more plausible.
The upside of Mel Gibson's
anti-semitic tirade is that he has been asked by a rabbi in Hollywood
to speak to the rabbi's congregation at temple during Yom Kippur. Since

The downside of Mel Gibson's
anti-semitic tirade is that apparently he thinks he can convince the
rest of us that alcohol makes you say things you don't believe.

there's hope for all the impotent old men in the world who long to do
that to you one more time.
The downside is being married to them.
The upside of global warming is a longer growing season and reduced heating costs.
The downside is pumping all the melting glacier water out of the basement.
The upside of the secret O.J. tapes is finding out that he has to wait for the bus just like the rest of us.
