Apparently now steroids will get you shot...or your DNA jacked

Look, the whole steroid era has me just as cynical as the rest of you. I think guys like McGwire and Bonds are jokes. I think roids are nasty drugs that shouldn't be allowed in sport, and in later life they'll probably kick the crap out of the people that use them. But Jesus Christ! Am I really to believe steroids had anything to do with Steve Foley getting capped three times by the police? That is certainly how this article makes it sound. Personally, I think it had more to do with the erratic driving, his .223 BAC, the aggressive gesturing, the 7-year history of alcoholism, and the multiple incidents of fighting with cops. Maybe that's just me.

Anyway, it looks like having the authorities overreact to suspected steroid users is becoming a pretty common occurrence. Today German authorities successfully raided the house of former Tour de France winner Jan Ullrich in order to...wait for it...seize his DNA. Holy shit. I don't think ADT has an alarm to prevent that yet.
