Random drug tests are a part of being a professional athlete, but not every athlete understands why he or she is tested.

Count Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck as one of the athletes who doesn't feel like he should be tested. The 38-year-old certainly doesn't look like someone who is using performance-enhancing drugs, but the National Football League still requires him to be tested.

Hasselbeck's latest random drug test led to him throwing out an awesome analogy:

Hasselbeck is entering his 16th season in the league. Even after all these years, he still doesn't see the point in having to take random drug tests. We are just thankful that he has such a good sense of humor about the situation.
