I've always wondered why people who take Viagra and Enzyte don't get the cold shoulder for taking "performance enhancing drugs" in the bedroom. It's the same concept right?
Take it away, Yahoo! Sports:
"Testosterone and similar drugs are effective for erectile dysfunction in that they jazz up your sex drive,” said Charles Yesalis, a professor at Penn State who has testified before Congress on issues of performance-enhancing drugs. “But far more clinicians accept that affect with Viagra and Cialis. It’s hard for me to understand if it was erectile dysfunction why they would use it."
And kudos to ESPN for doing what the self-proclaimed World Wide Leader in sports is supposed to do. No gimmicks. No bull. Straight reporting. Love it.
"[T]wo sources told ESPN's T.J. Quinn and Mark Fainaru-Wada that the drug used by Ramirez is HCG -- human chorionic gonadotropin. HCG is a women's fertility drug typically used by steroid users to restart their body's natural testosterone production as they come off a steroid cycle. It is similar to Clomid, the drug Bonds, Giambi and others used as clients of BALCO."
As for who's next to get busted, my guess is porn stars, who will then ask for a federal bailout for their industry.
