‘Roidfully Known

October 5, 2007

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the Olympic star Marion Jones was juicing prior to the 2000 Olympics. Marion Jones wrote a letter confessing to her family and friends. I wonder who leaked the information in that letter? Once a triple gold medalist in Sydney was under the “impression” the flax-seed oil she was taking wasn’t “the clear”. Wait a sec, I thought Marion was using flax-seed oil? How the truth bends to any angle! The clear is a name of a performance-enhancing drug produced by BALCO. The same BALCO that may be linked to Home Run King Barry Bonds.

Also in the Post Jones will plead guilty Friday in New York to two counts of lying to federal agents about the drug use and an unrelated financial matter. The newspaper reports, “I want to apologize for all of this” quoting a person (remember that family or friend?) who received a copy of the letter. The letter also states, “I am sorry for disappointing you all in so many ways.”

Sucks to be her, because this confession could pony up the five medals she won at the Sydney Olympics. Her goal participating in the Olympics was to bring home five gold medals. Do you feel bad for her now? Pandora’s Box has been open and a lot of personnel are coming out sprinting! Victor Conte head of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) repeatedly accused Jones of doping.

That must have been some strong tasting flax-seed oil, because in 2003 Jones among many other athletes testified at a San Francisco federal grand jury that was investigating… yup BALCO. Her boyfriend (past, or present?) Tim Montgomery was given a two-year ban for doping in late 2005. December 2004 the International Olympic Committee declared an investigation on doping allegations against Jones.

Last year she tested positive for EPO a performance-enhancing drug. She immediately quit the European track tour forfeiting an estimated $300,000 in appearance and performance fees. When she returned to the states she tested negative to a urine sample connecting EPO.

Wait! it gets better. Jones was reported saying, “Red flags should have been raised when he told me not to tell anyone.” If someone tells me not to tell anyone, a lightbulb goes off and it’s not a good one! So where does this financial matter fall into place? Jones lied about a $25k check given to her by Montgomery (boyfriend) who pleaded guilty in New York concerning a multimillion-dollar band fraud and money-laundering scheme. What the hell is going on here? Ole’ Timothy wasn’t alone on this “financial” scheme Jones’ former agent, Charles Wells, and coach Steven Riddick was among them. I think drugs are the least of her concern since her reputation is shot. Now if her coach, boyfriend, and agent was apart of this…

Stay tuned on a developing story on Barry Bonds! back to you Alex!


NFLs 4th Week

October 1, 2007

Where to start…

Well my fave Panthers were upsetting this week against Tampa Bay. They stand 2-2, same as the Bucs.  The second loss at home… at home. We’re only in the fourth week! Looks like Carolina is going to show a pathetic season.  20-7, enough said.

Brett Favre is firing on all cylinders. Setting the TD record. Hopefully he’ll stay in the league until he breaks the passing record set by Dan Marino. Improving their team to 4-0, could this be the year? After his 32/45 2 td, and 0 int it could be.

Daunte Culpepper of the Raiders brought a victory to Oakland. About time that boy has done something. Ever since the good old days of (98) with Randy by his side, he hasn’t performed for shit. Minnesota then Miami now Oakland. Lets hope he stays in one place to get a ring?

Tony Romo and the Cowboys are playing well. Improved record of 4-0. Looks like the teams chemistry is working. In the last four games they haven’t put up less than 34 points. I guess TO has kept his mouth shut, and caught the ball?

Indy dominated Denver. Line stats showed it was a good game. Payton Manning threw superb 20-27, 193 yards, 3tds. Score was 38-20.

NY Giants upset the Philadelphia Eagles. I guess Donovan was sick that day? 16 to 3, I would believe so.

SD Chargers RB LT ran for 132 yds, and they still lost to Arizona! I don’t know what to say about this game. I hope Priest Holmes, and LJ ran well…

Tom Brady’s Pats won over Cincy. I guess that number 85 F.H.O.F didn’t put up? I hate these trash talking WRs. What happened to the days when they made enough to pay bills, and played for the hell of it? Until these salaries decrease I guess it won’t.

.. The rest are worthless to mention.
