Seriously, what is going on. Everyone is doping. Dope, dope, dope, dope, dope. Haven’t people learned yet, you’re going to get caught? Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez, Floyd Landis, APOP Kyniras (soccer/football), Marion Jones and Shawne Merriman. For those that are counting, that’s nearly every major sport. Golf legend Gary Player has even come out and said that he knows of golfers that have used steroids in the past. The one notable exception is the NBA, but even they have been criticized for having a weak steroids policy.

The newest culprit, French tennis player Richard Gasquet was busted for using banned substances. Yeah, that’s right. Even tennis players are doping now. This is out of control and just keeps getting bigger. I just can’t believe, that this is all happening 13 years after a 15-year-old girl was banned from competition in swimming of all sports for a positive steroids test. That was 1996. If this is how far we’ve come since then, when we knew this was effecting children, I’m afraid of where it will go from here.

Update: And now it comes out that Andre Agassi allegedly used crystal meth during his playing days. What is wrong with athletes?
