KICKING A HORSE WHILE HE’S DOWN: SEVERAL PAPERS BLAST BIG BROWN OVER STEROID USE

June 10, 2008

BIG BROWN TOOK THE STEROID WINSTROL

Several newspapers are out with stories blasting failed Triple Crown racehorse Big Brown.

The Toronto Star called Big Brown the “biggest flop of all.”  According to the paper, “No horse with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness in the bag ever crapped out as badly.” The Star accuses Big Brown of being a steroid burnout.

Meanwhile the New York Times also questioned whether Big Brown’s past success was simply the result of steroids:

 

Worst of all for Big Brown’s connections, perhaps, were the questions about steroids. (Trainer Rick) Dutrow told The New York Times last week that Big Brown had not had his usual shot of the anabolic steroid Winstrol since April 15, enough time for the drug to leave his system.

Was Big Brown’s poor performance because of his lack of “juice?”

WAS NFL PROSPECT’S DEATH STEROID RELATED?

April 13, 2008

 

Profootballtalk.com has raised the issue of steroids in the death of possible NFL draft pick Heath Benedict.

The site says Benedict, “whose sudden death last month prompted some league insiders to wonder whether steroid use might have played a role in his demise, died due to a heart condition.”

True says the site. But did supplements or any other substances play a role in that heart condition.

Heath Benedict was rated as one of the sleepers of the 2008 NFL draft. He attended tiny Newberry College. Benedict had struggled with injury issues and lost 20 pounds before the Senior Bowl. The injury and weight issues have helped lead to speculation of Benedict’s possible steroid use.

 

BEARDED LADY GOING TO PRISON?

April 8, 2008

SHE\'S A MAN, BABY!

SHE’S A MAN, BABY!

 

 

Disgraced U.S. cyclist, Tammy Thomas, may be the latest athlete going to jail in the BALCO steroids case.

Thomas was convicted Friday of lying to a grand jury.

An indignant Thomas actually screamed at prosecutors following her conviction,

 

“I already had one career taken away from me,” she yelled. “Look me in the eye. You can’t do it.” Thomas then turned to a prosecutor and shouted, “Look me in the eye …. You like to destroy people’s lives.”

Thomas, who is pursuing a legal career, may now be forbidden from taking the California State Bar Exam because of her felony conviction.

Among the highlights of the trial was the testimony of Dr. Margaret Wierman, an endocrinologist at the University of Colorado. Wierman testified that when she examined Thomas in 2000, she observed masculine body features.

“My recollection was that when I examined her, she had specific signs of evidence of a full beard” and other features, including male-pattern balding, diminished breasts and unusual patterns of hair on her chest and arms, Wierman said.

Great! The woman had a FULL BEARD AND CHEST HAIR from taking steroids but she’s worried about how this conviction is going to look on her record!

As Steve Cofield wrote on his blog, Mr. Sunshine, Thomas was actually caught by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency SHAVING HER FACE during a surprise inspection.

McNamee told police he blacked out because of an ongoing medical problem. McNamee’s Lexus, another car and the bus were involved in the crash. No one was seriously hurt.

Police say no one was charged with any offense in the wreck.
