The Government Reform Committee also said Thursday it will ask for similar data from the NBA, NHL, NCAA, U.S. Track and Field and Major League Soccer.

It's the bottom of the ninth, fourth and long and you're looking at a full court press.

I honestly don't think NHL has a riods problem. The best players have in history been skinny guys (relatively speaking).

It doesn't mean some players don't use them, but strength isn't as important as other skils such as puck handling.

The "Having solved all other problems" cliche never sounded better. Praise the Lord and pass the Paxil.

I just love that name.
It's hypnotic.

So, these guys claim to have the authority to conduct hearings on absolutely anything they want to, and the best they can come up with is steroid use in sports and whether or not one woman's feeding tube can be removed?

Can you tell it is not an election year?

Actually, yes....they do have the power to hold a hearing on anything.

I think steroids should be mandatory in all professional athletics. All participants must weigh at least 300 pounds with less than 1% body fat on them. Then again, I'd litter weapons around the courts like in the Mutant League games on Sega Genesis, so maybe my advice isn't too sound. I'd watch it, though. It's not like the athletes expect to be treated as normal humans anyway.

Where's the outrage about the Pope? Can't they see that GOD IS KILLING HIM?!?! They better subpoena him fast or it's all over.

/"culture of life" my ass
 
2005-03-31 11:06:44 PM
What about professional wrestling and body building? They may not be sports, but on a percentage basis, I'd wager there are a lot more people in those activities using steroids than there are in the sports listed in the article.
 
2005-03-31 11:06:47 PM
This is getting dumb. Baseball i can understand congress caring about. Major League Baseball has special protection granted to it by congress. Congress should never be involved with the NFL.

Tom Delay needs to lecture them on integrity
 
2005-03-31 11:07:52 PM
Holy bread and circuses. Nero central. These guys are filling their year with diversionary bullshiat. Perhaps (crazy idea) they should start hearings towards a balanced budget now - that way they won't be spilling over into recess next fall, and we can start to grapple with our ridiculous debt.

Ow. my head hurts. maybe democracy is too inefficient to succeed in the long run after all. I'm so tired of all this shiat.

but I think the point was there are more pressing issues at hand

I believe I came across a post of yours in the Schiavo thread. If you are the one I think you, I wanted to offer my condolences (been there).

Democracy works in most situations, but it requires an informed and responsible populace.

In the absence of such a populace, the system fixes itself by becoming a dictatorship.

well fusor im sad to tell yas that no matter how much money the dems spend delay is not going anywhere unlike a few parts of the country the people of texas actually value life.
 
2005-03-31 11:18:13 PM
at least they're staying consistent with the trend of farking up things less important than how people live their lives

There were enough beating a dead horse jokes in the Schiavo thread, but

When Republicans commit adultery (and they do)...do they lie about it? I'd bet they do
 
2005-03-31 11:20:10 PM
I thought the only reason baseball had a special hearing was because of the special anti-trust agreement it has with the government. This is clearly a waste of time and a misuse of congressional subpeona power.

It's too short for you not to have RTFT. We so-called "apologists" were responding to fusor's threadjack.

End threadjack?

duh wrong person sorry late oops sorry

They just want to get an edge on their fantasy draft. I'll take the QB on Testoterone, the RB on steroids, and the kicker from Ohio State.
 
2005-03-31 11:23:35 PM
Personally I don't care if the Eagles players take roids as long as they are stronger roids than everyone else's.

Watch out for that tool shrinkage and stuff though TO.
 
2005-03-31 11:24:28 PM
I was growing tired of seeing Iraqi car bombings and Schiavo's face on American Morning. Having this crap thrown in my eyes is far more pleasant than the usual mortars and moral pleas that radiate on every stupid station.

Texans value life.

...which explains why Texas has been responsible for over a third of our country's executions in the past 30 years (true, most were guilty-but I thought Bush liked to "err on the side of life").

...and why DeLay had his father taken off life support.
 
2005-03-31 11:28:05 PM

As long as we keep the little people worrying about Terri Schiavo and sports, they won't worry about my ethics investigations (or the debt, oil prices, war, etc).

/Sorry for stating the obvious...

The "Having solved all other problems..." cliche can now be replaced with "Having no feeding tubes left to re-insert..."
 
2005-03-31 11:33:42 PM


"I say we keep everyone on life support just in case. The exception is if it's one of my relatives in question and I'd have to dip into my bribes to pay for it, in which case, OFF WITH HIS HEAD!"

kobe is on the juice look at before and after pics
 
2005-03-31 11:38:03 PM
This really irks me. How about a massive investigation into illegal drug use in prisons. There is probably more illegal drugs being passed around easily through our toughest prisons than there are steroids in Barry Bonds.

"Oh, Canada!" Sounds better everyday.
 
2005-03-31 11:39:22 PM
dood, I'm on the juice, I take via feeding tube. It's in my living will.
 
2005-03-31 11:42:41 PM
Zippy, did you have the Rev Jesse Jackson insert the feeding tube?
 
2005-03-31 11:44:56 PM
The Pope did. I asked him to take it out, but he's being disposed of right now.
 
2005-03-31 11:46:49 PM
I bet O'Reily and Hannity will help defend your right to the quality of life you want. Assuming you want great big biceps, and little bitty pen!s.
 
2005-03-31 11:58:32 PM
look this is the case nothing has been proved against delay (that and he would be facing a trail by now)although the libs have been harping on it for a year now. In terms of congress sticking its nose in sports i think it should baseball isnt going to do anything about it bud selig basically said so
 
2005-04-01 12:00:25 AM
If they were serious about steroids, they'd snuff the NHL season.

"My blood hurts."

Happy April 1st!

Hail Big Brother!

Overbearing, overeaching, federal government dealing with a private business I think is wrong.

But at least they're doing it for everyone.
 
2005-04-01 12:14:50 AM
And this will solve as much as the previous Baseball, and Sheivo shiat
 
2005-04-01 12:24:59 AM
They should make them farkers use steroids. It kin make games in almost inny sport so much more spectacular. KnowwhutImean? Hell it made a dick like Barry Bonds almost tolerable tuh watch 'cuz yew wuz always on thuh edge uh yer seat wonderang if'n he wuz goin' tuh hit ANOTHER one.

"The letter to the NFL comes a day after CBS' "60 Minutes Wednesday" reported that Panthers punter Todd Sauerbrun and center Jeff Mitchell and former offensive lineman Todd Steussie filled testosterone cream prescriptions during the 2003 season, when the team went to the Super Bowl."

Hmmm..... testosterone cream. I wonder if they all had a bad case of "tennis elbow" after filling their prescriptions.

"AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA! AaAaAaAaAaAaA!"
