Matt Hasselbeck was completely flattered by his random drug test

On Thursday, Hasselbeck's number came up and the league's medical team asked him for a sample.
But the 17-year pro did not consider the supposed random testing a nuisance. In fact, he was quite flattered to be selected at all.
It was an honor and a privilege to be selected for random drug testing today.— Matthew Hasselbeck (@Hasselbeck) July 31, 2014
I also would like to thank the 3 men who administered my drug test for their professionalism & many compliments they threw my way.— Matthew Hasselbeck (@Hasselbeck) July 31, 2014
Unlike Saints QB Drew Brees, who got tested twice after saying he thought he could play until age 45, Hasselbeck has said he plans to retire after this season or next.
All in all, it sounded like a smooth, uplifting experience. Can't wait for the five-star Yelp review.
