    A-Rod, *sigh*

    Alex Rodriguez on the drug testing in baseball:
    "Last year, I got tested 9-to-10 times...We have a very, very strict policy, and I think the game is making tremendous strides"

    There was a woman named Blight

    She set out one day
    in her relative way
    and returned on the previous night.

    I was tested zero times last year. 9 would be very strict from my point of view.

    +1. 9-10 is a good amount unless they know it's coming then anything less than 365 isn't enough.

    cycling = big days that are important. Giro, TdF, etc
    baseball = play almost 200 games. You dope two days before you play the Devil Rays. Big F------ing deal.

    Baseball and Football only do piss tests. The vampires, or pee-pires, call 24-48 hours in advance to make sure that the team in question has an area set-up in the locker room or clubhouse so that the tests can be carried out.
    If anyone thinks that this info isn't passed on, they are naive and deluded.

    There's no piss test for HgH, which is what most of these ******s are on. I mean c'mon, a guy who's 6'4" and 250 runs a 4.5 40? Yeah, it's natural ability...

    If they got rolled out of the sack @ 6 a.m. and blood tested, there'd be a lot of dudes failing. The unions prevent this from happening.

    Cycling is clean by comparison...
