My fantasy team (and reigning league champion), King Kong Cutch, will be objecting to any discipline levied at Gio Gonzalez, an integral part of its 2012 championship roster.

It has been reported for some time that MLB had been investigating this clinic in Miami. Sadly, this is far from shocking news.

Would this qualify as A-Rod's second violation? The first violation being that he is a douchebag of the highest order.

And though the handwritten entries from the non-doctor doctor at the clinic are almost certainly accurate, I don't believe that MLB will punish or suspend a player without a positive test result.

Or in one case, even WITH a positive test result ...

The anti doping regimen for Olympic athletes is unbelievably stringent. No. 2 son was just named to the OLympic Performance Squad and along with that came a contract setting all the rules for drug testing. He must quarterly, submit a schedule of classes, practices, workouts and any other place or thing he might do for the 3 month period. IF there is any change in that, he must email his change to USA diving and the doping agency. The doping agency can show up and require him to test at any time and any place and if he is not available it counts as a failed test. Also, despite being of legal age to consume alcohol, if he is caught drinking even one beer or drink while on a USA diving trip, he is supsended for one year and a second offense bans him for life. Fortunately, he is very meticulous and driven and this shouldn't be any problem for him. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Well that certainly seems excessive. Especially the part about counting as a failed test one that was never taken.

Off topic, but congrats AZ on your son's success. You've got to be so proud!

Thanks. He has worked hard and sacrificed a lot to get where he is.

It may be but they are required to provide 100% accountability about where they are at any given time. :roll: :roll: :roll:
