but again, that misses the point. it's still entertainment! we wouldn't have any decent music if not for drugs and alcohol. and i'm talking from beethoven to the beatles.



however sportsmanship and fair play are supposed to be one and the same.

i dispise trash talking and endzone dances as much as i dispise steroid use, but that's taking this thread to another level, another discussion.

Personally, I sometimes find the endzone dances the most entertaining part of a football game!

(probably not the point either, huh, BT? )

Hey! This could be one of our "streams-of-consciousness" threads!

lol, qsis.

you just like the tight pants on large men.



as far as trash goes: if you play hard, running or skating as hard as you can into a brick wall of a man, hoping to go through him by sheer will, you shouldn't need to show off.

sports are supposed to be a show of athleticism, as well as grace and beauty. you can't be graceful if you're being an a$$.

No I do not think that is correct Corey. Recreational drugs are used for recreation. In other words they are used for fun. These athletes are not taking steroids because it makes them high. they are taking them to enhance their abilities.

Huh? Please read this explanation of what anabolic steroids are, how they work, and what they do and point out the "recreational" part.

Yes I know, but they are still being, or are about to be held accountable.
