    I thought this thread was about Marion Berry.

    It's about freaking time she copped to it.

    Sounds like a 'bankruptcy relief' strategy to me. The 'new, improved, rehabilitated' Marion is ready for prime time.

    And some $$$.

    Wow, that is big. Jones did a good job of playing the victim for a while.

    Yet another example of why it's hard to believe athletes when they deny using steroids. How sad.

    Does ANYBODY still think Lance Armstrong was clean for all of those 7 Tours?

    The nice guy in me would like to believe she "got religion" and decided to come clean, no pun intended.

    The cynic in me sees this as a pre-emptive strike. Someone was about to unload.

    I can't say I'm surprised. I can say I'm disappointed. Dealt with her a lot over the years, in both sports. Always liked her.

    Did her balls shrink like Barry's?

    Fixed.

    Good scoop, indeed. Glad to see someone come clean.

    America says "No fucking shit."

    Somewhere in California, Creamora just creamoraed his jeans.

    And Cranberry sniffs at the Post's reportage. Or maybe it's OK because it's not a baseball player admitting usage.

    He was tested more than just about anyone in sports.

    He was either clean during those years or paying off the labs.

    Before his first win? I'm not sure.
