Sandcrawler PSA: All Athletes With Medical Condition Banned From Sport Forever
The Drug War paranoia invading sport has now reached the point where anyone who uses any medication for any reason, legitimate or not cannot compete.
There are of course reasons why some drugs are banned, but the ever increasing list of banned items, even prescribed medications to treat medical conditions keeps growing.
So now only perfect specimens are allowed to compete. To push their limits.
Who is to say really that say a lifter might trade longevity to push human achievement? The basis saying well its not fair for say a home run hitter to use medical science to improve his performance unless everyone is allowed.
Now this has been turned to say that unless you are in perfect health, you can't compete, lest the treatment of your condition give you some unfair advantage over the healthy.
Its a witch hunt that has gone out of control, what next, aspirin? Aspirin might thin the blood, and give you an advantage over those who didn't have a headache.
Discuss, ban everything, ban nothing, because obviously the approach we're using is not working for either side.

You Can Observe a Lot By Just Watching
Berra was the backbone of a New York Yankees dynasty that won 10 World Series championships -- the most in the sport's history.Before my time really, but still known.
He was born Lawrence Peter Berra, the son of Italian immigrants. One version has it that he earned the nickname "Yogi" from a childhood friend who said the snake charmer in a movie looked like Berra.
He dropped out of school in the 8th grade to help support his family by playing baseball, then later served in the U.S. Navy.

Apparently Warren didn't feel the quality and felt he was being overcharged for services rendered, not taking into account the increased demand surrounding the Super Bowl.
In the early morning hours before NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp's arrest on assault and solicitation of prostitution charges, hotel guests at the Phoenix downtown Renaissance awoke to what they believed to be an argument and physical altercation in a hotel hallway, Yahoo Sports has learned.
Officers arrived shortly after the incident and interviewed the woman who had alleged the assault. Officers then began to look for the second woman, who had left the scene. Both eventually identified themselves to police as escorts who had met Sapp in the hotel. The source said Sapp was interviewed by police, then remained in his room until the second woman could be located. It was after the second woman was found and interviewed that Sapp was taken into custody and subsequently charged with soliciting prostitution and assault around 7 a.m. local time.
A longtime Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle who also played for the Oakland Raiders (and onetime Dancing With the Stars contestant), Sapp was fired from his job as an analyst for the NFL Network on Monday, shortly after charges were filed against him. Sapp was arraigned in a Phoenix court and released on his own recognizance on Monday afternoon.

Driver Killed in Dirt Track Accident Involving Tony Stewart
From CBS News:
CANANDAIGUA, New York - Three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart struck and killed a sprint car driver who had climbed from his car and was on the darkened dirt track trying to confront Stewart during a race in upstate New York on Saturday night.
Kevin Ward Jr. had crashed following contact with Stewart one lap earlier and got out of his car as it was stopped along the fence. Video of the incident showed Ward walking from his crashed car onto the racing surface as cars circled by, and, as he gestured at Stewart's passing car, he was struck.
There is much debate as to whether Stewart deliberately accelerated to hit Ward, or if he was trying to gain traction to avoid hitting him.
This is video of the incident. It claims to be quite graphic, so be warned. I haven't yet watched it as, unless it's a terrorist or a criminal, I have no desire to see someone die.

Hey, There are Worse Reasons to Root For the Seahawks than that one of their Cheerleaders is an Air Force Officer
Okay, I really have no skin in this game. I was going to root for the Broncos for on other reason than I have a buddy rooting for the Seahawks. But then, this:
Alicia Quaco works at two jobs. Nothing surprising about that; many Americans have a “day job”, and another job to help make ends meet.Yeah, that seals the deal.
But Alicia’s combination is a little unusual – probably unique. Her day job is working for Uncle Sam in the military – she’s a first lieutenant in the US Air Force.
And, what does she do in the evenings? She goes to training practice for her second job as a member of the cheerleading squad for the Seattle Seahawks!
Unless the Broncos have a cheerleader with a purple heart, I'm sticking with Seattle. Thanks to CDR M

Obviously this case has merit:
A Steelers fan in the Pennsylvania corrections department has filed a handwritten lawsuit against the NFL in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania to seek a "temporary emergency injunction" for the playoffs on the grounds that the Steelers should be in the playoffs instead of the San Diego Chargers.Well, duh.

Bailing his wife out of jail. Apparently she takes her 'Bama football seriously:
After an Iron Bowl party on Saturday turned violent, police have charged 28-year-old Adrian Laroze Briskey with murder for the shooting death of 36-year-old Michelle Lacette Shepherd....Which just goes to show that desegregation was a bad idea in Alabama. They really should have separate drinking fountains for Auburn and Tide fans!
When officers arrived, Shepherd was already dead. According to authorities, Briskey and Shepherd got into an argument after the game and the fight spilled into the parking lot. During the incident, Briskey allegedly shot Shepherd three times with a small caliber handgun. The women did not know each other prior to the party.
So, I almost had it right yesterday when I said I wasn't bailing Howie out.

There was much contorting at the Slate offices today as staffers patted themselves on the back for deciding the publication would no longer refer to the Washington Redskins by the team’s name. Oh, and neither should you.
Allow me to retort with this tweet by one of the most popular Washington #$@&^%s out there:

The Olympics saw an interesting boxing match last week. When I saw this, like many, I was shocked at such a blatantly biased display. Why would this ref go so far and risk so much for a mediocre fighter?
Other than coming from neighboring countries, they don't seem to be related or connected in any way. The boxer, Magomed Abdulhamidov, is from Azerbaijan. The referee, Ishanguly Meretnyyazov, is from Turkmenistan. I just don't see a connection. Maybe someone can help me out?
It should be noted that the decision was later overturned and the referee sent home.

Animal Rights Drone Blasted by Hunters
(Bamberg County, South Carolina) Last week, an animal rights group launched a video-equipped helicopter drone to monitor a pigeon shooting range at Broxton Bridge Plantation in South Carolina.
Within minutes, hunters blasted the drone out of the sky.
A group called SHARK, which stands for Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, had publicized their plans to use the drone to record the pigeon shoot at Broxton Bridge Plantation in South Carolina.The drone suffered $200 to $300 in damage from being shot down. The sheriff was notified of the incident. (More….)

Apparently, he messed with the wrong woman and got beat down (among other things...).
A Russian man who tried to rob a hair salon ended up as the victim when the female shop owner overpowered him, tied him up naked and then used him as a sex slave for three days.
Viktor Jasinski, 32, admitted to police that he had gone to the salon in Meshchovsk, Russia, with the intention of robbing it.
But the tables were turned dramatically when he found himself overcome by owner Olga Zajac, 28, who happened to be a black belt in karate.
She allegedly floored the would-be robber with a single kick.
Then, in a scene reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, police say Zajac dragged the semi-conscious Jasinski to a back room of the salon and tied him up with a hair dryer cable.
She allegedly stripped him naked and, for the next three days, used him as a sex slave to 'teach him a lesson' - force feeding him Viagra to keep the lesson going.
Yeah, that'll teach him...

Yemeni Mens' Volleyball Team Distracted By Hot Chearleader's Sexuality
Bikini-clad cheerleaders have been blamed by the Yemen beach volleyball team for their defeat during the Asian Games.But the coach apparently very much enjoyed the game as he says
Yemen beach volleyballer Adeeb Mahfoudh has now accused the squads of being distracting, and partly to blame for their defeat to Indonesia.
"They had an effect on how we played," he said. "I think they had something to do with our losing the match.
These girls are very beautiful. With them here, more people will pay attention to beach volleyball," Mr Mahfoudh added.Well I think the Yemeni's can figure out just why the Indonesians were not so distracted
"If I can, I hope to watch them perform at the next match.
For research purposes I googled Hot Yemeni....
vs. Hot Indonesian....
Er, I think that demonstrates for sure why they Yemeni men are so distracted. So to assist in their training I've added some distracting images at the Moisture Farm to help desensitize them. But you Yemeni girls need to pick it up if there is any hope of improvement.

PETA Protests Chinese Cock Soccer
(Liaoning Province, China) Perpetually-outraged PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) are currently complaining about cock soccer.
The soccer-playing cocks were the idea of Zhang Lijun of China back as she noticed the roosters had a good time when allowed to play with balls (pic).PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said the cocks are being exploited and abused.
She started throwing them mini-soccer balls to kick around a few years ago and was amazed how they reacted to them.
The entrepreneur is now organizing and holding mini-tournaments on the ancient streets of Shenyang, which is located in Liaoning province in northeast China.
She stated the roosters don’t take any dives like some of the sport’s prima donnas do and are glad to play for chickenfeed.

World Cup Cupboard
(Johannesburg, South Africa) Today, the World Cup final will be played (2:30 ET ABC) between Spain and Holland. Neither team has ever won the World Cup.
Handicapping the contest, Paul, the psychic octopus living in a German aquarium and known for accuracy in predicting the outcome of games, has confidently picked Spain to win.
By the way, there are rumors about Paul, the prescient octopus. One rumor is that someone has put out a contract on the life of Paul. Another is that someone has offered to buy Paul for tens of thousands of dollars. No confirmation on either.
In other World Cup news, popular Dutch adult film star, Bobbi Eden, headliner of classics like "Innocent Until Proven Filthy", "Humpalong Cassidy", and others, is undeterred and going all out to show her support for her team from Holland. Eden has offered to provide an intimate blowing of anatomical vuvuzelas of all her Twitter followers if the Netherlands wins the World Cup.
Prior to the announcement, Eden had about 4K followers. Afterward, enthusiasm for the Dutch soccer team exploded and Eden's Twitter account jumped to more than 100,000 followers. Of course, anyone can see Eden's offer is a simple publicity stunt. Imagine that.
However, at the same time, more interest in the outcome has emerged. Eden promises to publish details on how to collect the vuvuzela blow on her Twitter page tomorrow. (more....)

Heartache: Fatwa Declares Loud Vuvuzela Against Islam!
I'm torn. On the one hand, anything associated with soccer is clearly ghey. So, good riddance.
On the other hand, these things are pretty much the only thing keeping soccer interesting:
But now, just days before Holland and Spain settle the tournament in the 2010 World Cup final, the UAE’s General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments has finally issued its ruling. If they are loud enough to damage hearing, vuvuzelas are haram. According to fatwa number 11625, the horns can be used only in stadiums if they pose no harm....Thanks to Jeff.
“However,” the ruling declares, “importers and traders ... must ensure that its power is not over 100 decibels so as to avoid damaging people’s hearing.”...
The National’s own specimen vuvuzela easily maxed out a sound level meter, which can record up to 126 decibels. Even the quieter horns, rushed out after the first wave of complaints, are only 20 decibels less noisy – still over the limit.

Rapist Mike Tyson Makes Mecca Pilgramage
Since Mike Tyson went to jail for rape, one can only assume he'll fit right into one of the most misogynistic cultures on Earth. But one also wonders if he had committed the crime in Mecca whether he'd even be prosecuted given there weren't two male witnesses. Instead the victim might have been flogged or worse.
FORMER boxing champion Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam while in jail in the 1990s, is visiting the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina on pilgrimage.Paul wants to know whether ears are halal or harem.
Tyson, who was world heavyweight champion from 1986 to 1990, arrived on Friday in Medina with the Canadian Dawa Association for the umrah, or minor pilgrimage, the newspaper Okaz said.
That depends on whether the opponent is one of the sons of pigs and apes.

Good luck to all in the Warrior Games!!
U.S. Flags Salute Wounded Warrior Athletes
By Samantha L. Quigley
WASHINGTON, April 29, 2010 – The American flags raised over five military installations don’t look any different from the one raised over the U.S. Capitol on any given day, but there is one distinct difference.
These flags will bear the well-wishes of servicemembers stationed around the world for injured soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines and veterans competing in the inaugural Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., next month.
With the help of the Defense Media Activity and the USO, five American flags found their way to Afghanistan, Germany, Hawaii, Iraq and South Korea, where they were raised over military points of interest. One flew above the USS Arizona in Hawaii, and another over Korea’s demilitarized zone. A third was raised above Germany’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. Flags flew over Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, and Joint Base Balad, Iraq, as well.
Each flag-raising was filmed and will be broadcast with special messages from deployed servicemembers during the Warrior Games opening ceremonies.
For one recipient of a flag, what began as a routine assignment to organize and film the flag-raising turned into much more, especially after he called the Landstuhl public affairs office and explained the project.
“Their response was overwhelming,” said Air Force Tech. Sgt. Leigh Bellinger, who serves with Detachment 4, Air Force News Agency, at Ramstein Air Base, Germany.
The public affairs team in Germany organized a joint-service detail to raise and lower the flag. The detail practiced for more than an hour the day before the actual flag-raising, Bellinger said.
“It was the afternoon of the actual ceremony that it all hit home,” he said. “As I stood in front of those soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen talking about the flag and the Warrior Games, it hit me -- the importance of what we were doing. This was for our brothers and sisters taking part in the Warrior Games.”
Troops injured in overseas combat zones receive treatment at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center before transport to stateside medical facilities. Landstuhl, therefore, “has special significance for every single wounded warrior taking part in the games,” Bellinger said. “More than likely, they passed through on their way back home from Iraq or Afghanistan.”
Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Carroll, the operations noncommissioned officer in charge for American Forces Network Afghanistan, said the request to fly an American flag wasn’t so unusual.
“Because we are in a combat zone, we are asked to fly lots of American flags for different reasons,” he said. “Each of them has meaning and importance for someone we don’t usually know. This one is unique, because it’s flown specifically for our brothers and sisters in arms and in honor of the sacrifice they have made, some of them here in Afghanistan.”
Carroll asked soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division if they’d be willing to participate in the ceremony to raise this special flag.God Bless our Wounded Warriors as well as all those serving/served. You are my heroes.
“Not only did they want to do it, but because they are the 82nd, they wanted to do it big,” Carroll said. “They had no issue finding servicemembers to help out with the flag raising … because of the significance of the event. They also wanted to have a formation spelling out ‘USO’ to thank everyone for their dedication to the Warrior Games.”
Carroll had a message for the athletes participating in the Warrior Games, as well.
“I would say to them, regardless of what branch of service they are in, they are heroes to us all,” he said. “I want to wish all the warriors good luck, but I want to especially say, ‘Go Army!’”
Bellinger offered the warrior athletes his best wishes, in the form of “a slow, sharp salute for all my brothers and sisters taking part.”
Nicholas Tovo, DMA’s Hawaii bureau chief, enlisted the help of two wounded warriors who will participate in the Warrior Games to raise the flag over the USS Arizona. Tovo offered a special thanks to everyone who made the flag-raising a success.
“I especially want to thank the servicemembers for participating and everything they have done, and will do, to support our country,” he said.
Once the five flags are back in the United States, members of the Rolling Thunder motorcyclist’s organization will transport them to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in time for the Warrior Games opening ceremonies, scheduled for May 10.
Rolling Thunder works to draw attention to prisoner-of-war and missing-in-action issues and veterans causes. The ride will begin May 5 at the site of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack in New York City, with stops at the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., to honor all 9/11 victims.
The Warrior Games begin May 10 and continue through May 14.

Babes with Guns Are Hotter
Billy Demong, the 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist in Nordic Combined, was interviewed on Fox News Red Eye program (video) this week and he was asked his opinion of which group of athletes had the hottest babes at the Vancouver Olympics.
An admitted "nordic dork," Mr. Demong responded by choosing the women's cross-county skiers as the hottest group of Olympic babes.
"The biathlon skiers, actually. You take a very beautiful endurance athlete [cross-country skier] and give her a gun."So, there you go. All other things being equal, it seems Mr. Demong thinks that the girls with guns are hotter. Here are some examples for analysis:
Yes, I sense hotness but I'm not convinced that other groups of female Olympians aren't just as hot. I'd suggest that the downhill skiers, the skaters, the curlers and others exhibit a comparable level of pulchritude without firearms.
Nevertheless, it seems that a gun in the capable hands of an attractive woman adds something -- a certain undefinable quality, a certain extra. A gun, however, is not a babe-maker.
In any event, this is all an academic exercise. I'm sure that readers have a variety of thoughts about whether babes are hotter with guns.
