'Your body has a long memory. If you're going to do things that hurt your body, you're going to pay the price later.' : Bill Romanowski claims he used nothing but legal nutritional supplements and carried them with him in a fishing tackle-like box. But now it seems he got HGH from BALCO, according to his wife in 1999. Big, bad Bill expressed thoughts about what white players needed to do 'to compete with the black guy in a mostly black sport.' To make matters worse, Romo is one of four Raiders who tested positive for THG, CBS reported today.

I guess it just wasn't just the Bowflex after all.

I wonder what this will do to Romanowski's pending legal troubles. And why have we just heard about Raiders? I want more dirt.

back on track, re: just the Raiders? I have a hunch its a left coast thing. Every name that has come up is from CA, except Giambi who just moved to the Bronx last summer. We should be hearing about more SF Giants, Dodgers, O As, Niners, and maybe even a baller or two.

The lab that is alleged to have supplied the THG is in the Bay Area. It's likely the Feds are going after the easy pickings first.

I always hated Romo, and imagined that his old teammates would say something like "And this is Bill *whisper* Be careful when he gets agitated, he goes right for the genitals," - when introducing him to new teammates. Also - as an aside - when are they going to update that Yankee photo of Giambi that is put on the scoreboard when he comes to bat? He looks like a cracked-out gremlin. On topic - yes I think Giambi has to be one of the juicers (caught or uncaught). Make that a Roided-out gremlin.

THG - the only path to a HIGH PERFORMANCE body.
