    Apologies if this is a d_b, but I couldn't find a thread with this info anywhere.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=3028585

    Apparently, someone forgot to set up a phony mailing address b/c the federales are hot on the trail. A "well-known, 6-foot-5, 276-lbs. entertainer/athlete from Massachusetts received a shipment of hGH lately. I'm not sure if they meant an entertainer/athlete who lives in or plays in Mass., but this could mean some bad news for Pats and/or Sox fans. Among the athletes on either team that fit this description are: Ortiz, Junior Seau, Adalius Thomas, Richard Seymour (a stretch), Mike Vrabel and Ben Watson.

    Schilling is the only other Sox player that approaches the approx. weight, and I doubt he's on anything more powerful than Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts. A Celtic at that height & weight is useless and I'm not sure how much Beantowners care about the Bruins anymore. I am really hoping that it isn't Ortiz. As much as he kills the Yanks, he seems like one of the better people in the game today.

    Edit: Anyone know the actual dimensions of John Cena and/or Triple H?

    "The U.S. Attorney's office disagrees, saying that Specialty supplied HGH for a "well-known" athlete in Massachusetts and an "entertainer/athlete" who received a shipment was 6-foot-5, 276 pounds, according to the New York Daily News."

    When I read this, I wasn't sure if it was one person or two. I read it as being two people. One who is a well-known athlete in Massachusetts, and a second person who is an "entertainer/athlete" who is 6-foot-5 and 276 pounds.

    The entertainer/athlete description made me think pro wrestler.
     
  3. Also my problem.
    If it's two people, it reads that the "athlete/entertainer" is the one who's 6-5, 276.

    Phila, just to answer your wrestling size questions, John Cena is listed as 6-1 and 240. Triple H is listed as 6-4, 260. Duane "The Rock" Johnson, however, is listed at 6-5, 275 pounds.

    Thanks, Seahawk. It would suggest that The Game might be The Culprit with those dimensions, but I just read that he either lives in NH or CT.

    Aren't Willie McGinest or Richard Seymour about that size?

    Both are listed over three bills.

    Wouldn't be McGinest-he's not with the Pats anymore.

    But if he lived in Massachusetts, he could still count. Also, in reading the story ...

    "The U.S. Attorney's office disagrees, saying that Specialty supplied HGH for a "well-known" athlete in Massachusetts and an "entertainer/athlete" who received a shipment was 6-foot-5, 276 pounds, according to the New York Daily News."

    ... Seems like they're talking about two people here, no? One in Massachusetts, the other an entertainer/athlete who's 6-5. 276.
