    I'm watching the "he said he said" debate with baseball player Roger Clemens and his one time trainer being played out in the national press and television media with no small amount of bewilderment. I'm watching the Congress participate in this circus with no small amount of horror. Given the number of other issues we as a country have to deal with I can't understand why we are allowing Congress to spend time on this and now, apparently, the Justice Department going forward. The terrorists, drug dealers, crooked businessmen, all must be laughing this week as they watch their chances...

    For the first time since Ronnie Coleman won the Sandow in 1998, a competitor caught him from behind. That man was Jay Cutler, and whenever the two went mano-a-mano in a back pose, it was evident how far Cutler had come in his development. In a feat many thought would never happen, Coleman, he of the freaky mass and stunning detail in his lats, mid-back and traps, was far from a shoo-in on this pose. However, in the end, even that wasn't enough to stop the reign of Coleman, who made it eight in a row, tying him with Lee...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants general manager Brian Sabean thinks Barry Bonds could be physically ready to play around 120 games for San Francisco next season. Barry Bonds hopes to kiss about 40 pounds goodbye this winter.Sabean and Bonds both have acknowledged the slugger needs an intense conditioning program over the winter to shed some weight Bonds put on while recovering from three operations this year on his right knee. Sabean hinted that Bonds might continue to work with physical therapist Clive Brewster in Los Angeles this offseason under the direction of Angels' team orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum, the pair who...

    The recipe called for 1/2 cc of testosterone cypionate every three days; one cc of testosterone enanthate per week; equipoise and winstrol v, 1/4 cc every three days, injected into the buttocks, one in one cheek, one in the other. It was the cocktail of a hardcore steroids user, and it is one of the "arrays," or steroid recipes, Mark McGwire used to become the biggest thing in baseball in the 1990s, sources have told the Daily News. Long before Jose Canseco claimed he injected McGwire in the behind in his tell-all autobiography "Juiced," the man known as Big Mac...

    In 35 years as a baseball fan, there has never been anyone more disappointing to me personally than Jose Canseco. The guy breaks my heart. He is the poster boy for wasted human potential, a tragi-comic figure who could have been the best ever but threw it all away. Who could have imagined that in the late 1980s, when Canseco was the world's premier player and a lethal combination of speed and power who filled stadiums with women like a ball-playing Tom Cruise? Now he's an ex-con, unwanted as a player after several arrests on weapons and assault charges and...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- On a lazy morning in the Castro District of downtown, two middle-aged men with shaved heads lean on the front counter at the local Gold's Gym, talking 'roids. "I took testosterone," says one man, who works there. "Hated it. Made me too pumped up." The other man, in sweats, laughs just a little. "Oh, that's the least powerful stuff you can take." He explains that he has grown far more muscular using human growth hormone

    Bonds used steroids in 2003, trainer says on secret recording Slugger's lawyer sees 'another below-the-belt bash' Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada, Chronicle Staff Writers Saturday, October 16, 2004 Barry Bonds was using an "undetectable" performance-enhancing drug during the 2003 baseball season, his weight trainer claimed in a conversation that was secretly recorded last year and provided to The Chronicle. Trainer Greg Anderson, 38, who is Bonds' longtime friend and a defendant in the BALCO steroids conspiracy case, also said on the recording that he expected to receive advance warning before the San Francisco Giants superstar had to submit to a...

    Scores of top athletes may be using a designer steroid drug, says the scientist who identified it. Don Catlin, molecular pharmacologist at UCLA's Olympic Analytical Laboratory, led an eight-man team that identified the previously undetected steroid, according to the New York Times. The team conducted tests that suggested that up to a half-dozen athletes in track and field had used the drug, Catlin said. He thinks other athletes were probably using similar unidentified drugs. Use of the drug, the steroid tetrahydrogestrinone, or THG, is the subject of a federal investigation that started with track and field athletes "but appears likely...
