Everybody Takes Steroids


Mixed Martial Arts giant Royce Gracie has tested positive for traces of Nandrolone, a commonly used anabolic steroid. Gracie is one of the biggest names in UFC history, as he's commonly referred to as the "pioneer of the sport" -- he captured the first Ultimate Fighting Championship on November 12, 1993. In short, he's a UFC god.

Why the hell is Gracie taking steroids these days?? He's almost 41 years old. His fighting days are long behind him, as evidenced by the fact that he's now struggling to defeat the likes of Kazuchi Sakuraba.

Anyways, if one were to take steroids (and risk their legacy), shouldn't they ensure that the juice they are injecting actually works? Has anyone seen Gracie of late?? His physique resembles that of the grandfather that loiters around your local 7/11.

In the end, this is just additional proof that most professional athletes AT LEAST experiment with steroids at some point in their career. However, the ONLY one the media points a finger at is Barry Bonds. Yes, Bonds is an a$$hat that has provoked many of his own issues with the media...but, it's wrong (on all levels) that he is the sole face of steroids.

As I attend tonight's Sox - Giants game tonight...I, for one, will not be cheering nor booing the phenomenon which is Barry Bonds. Instead, I will simply soak it all in and appreciate one of the greatest athletes we have ever witnessed. After all, his accomplishments have come on a level playing field (whether you want to accept it or not).

Lastly, how 'bout them Sox??? They look good -- it must be summer (same 'ol song and dance)...

the worst thing is that you never see anyone writing a blog or making comments about the yankees. no one cares at this point except for chieftain. everyday there is a new smart ass remark about the red sox sucking or the yankees getting better. it never ends.

Chieftain said...

I haven't made a SINGLE comment and/or reference about the Yanks and/or Red Sox since this run of misery started (11 days ago). Not a one. Purposely -- as I fully realize they are still 7.5 back.

Get your facts straight. You have no idea what you are talking about.

Chieftain said...

Did my research -- I suggest you do the same. The LAST time I mentioned the Sox/Yanks, it was June 3rd (when A-Rod homered off Papelbon).

Everyday?????? Care to retract? Careful, as you don't want to trip as you backpeddle...

All I know about Barry is that he is going to eclipse the biggest record in all of sport (bar none.. ) and he is going to move ahead of a guy that had to overcome all sorts of crap.. mainly racial to do it.. come on he was a black man in Atlanta beating a white man's record..

No we have a dirt bad who it the anti-Aaron well at least until A-Rod beats the record.. and at that time I will cheer for him even if he is a Spankee...
