Jamaican steroid tremor

    (Newser) – Two Jamaican Olympic hurdlers received shipments of banned performance-enhancing drugs in 2006 and 2007, according to documents obtained by Sports Illustrated. The drugs were sent to addresses linked to Delloreen Ennis-London and Adrian Findlay, both members of the Jamaican team in Beijing. Findlay denied using steroids, while Ennis-London was unreachable.

    "Trust me, I don't use steroids," Findlay said. "I guarantee you it wasn't mine and I didn't order it. I have a theory how this was sent." The prescription for London was from a doctor who describes himself as a "hormone therapist." Findlay's came from the Florida clinic where former Baltimore Orioles outfielder Jay Gibbons received banned drugs, the magazine reported.

    Gotta love SportsJournalists.com. A site full of "journalists" and we just love to make unsubstantiated accusations of steroid use.

    I heard Tony LaRussa called Bolt about being a pinch runner for the Cardinals.

    I wondered which of the Cubs' fanboys would take it there.

    I know it, just as I knew that joke was coming.
  10. Nobody's putting it in the New York Times. But if you aren't skeptical of any Olympic performance these days, you aren't doing your job in this profession.

    Skeptical is one thing. We tend to go beyond that. But we have had this debate before. People are entitled to their opinions. I am entitled to my belief that we should be better than that.
