Who uses steroids once or twice?
« Topic Start: December 18, 2007, 09:23:45 AM »
And who doesnt know if it was once or twice?

Brian Roberts said he used it once. Larry Bigbie, said Roberts used it once or twice.

If you use it once, you've already jumped in with both feet and most likely will use it again.  I certainly know if I used something once or more than once (twice).  I might not know if I did it 3 or 4 times, but I can definitely recall if it was only once.

This is such BS. All these guys need to stop squirming

Roberts said something like "After I did it once, I knew it was not who I was" (not exact quote). Did you have someone suck out the steroids a la snake venom.

99% of the people who did it once (or twice). Did it a whole bunch of times.  Once you cross that threshold, you might as well get something out of it.

He also said it never affectied his performance. So what about that 2005 season where you OPSed .902, sandwiched between seasons of .720 and .757, with the next highest being .809.

I dont mean to pick on Brian Roberts, but for some reason I read this artice about him linked to cnnsi.

I do like the use of quote-unquote once in the article

He said something to the extent, "I tried it ONCE and then found it wasn't "what I stood for."

Can't you make that determination before you poke yourself in the ass with a needle?  I mean, I don't do crack because its not what I stand for.  But I don't have to do a few lines to figure that out!

If you try it to enhance your performance you won't stop after one or two times. You need to give it time to see if it will work (which it obviously does). Any athlete that makes that decision will not stop at one. PED's are like Lay's potato chips.

Oh great, now I have a craving for potato chips. :)

Seriously, I'm feeling very cynical about any denials that have come out regarding this issue.

I DID try something only once back in the day...a substance that was quite popular but I found it horrible. I never took another trip down that road.

My brother tried to teach me how to smoke just "regular" cigarrettes.  Made me sick.  Never did it again.  Can't stand the smell now.

Ditto. I actually puffed on a cigarette when I was 7 to show off for my little brother so he could see how "cool" I was. I made the huge mistake of kissing my grandmother a few minutes later and I took a sound beating in public :? I've never tried it again.

LOL!!!  Little boys can be so dumb at 7!   That's funny!   Me being a goody two shoes at seven tried to throw out my grandfather's carton of camels.  I've never forgotten how mad he got at that either.

I had a friend as a teenager, that was slowly taking a few cigarrettes at a time out of his pack and hiding them.  It was her way of TRYING to get him to stop.  Not sure if to this day he ever caught on to how is cigarettes got used up so quickly.  He was quite a smoker at the time.

Difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

What's the difference between women and girls?

Women wear real gowns, girls dream about the day they can.  (Speaking of which, I need to find one for a black tie event on New Years Eve.  Hopefully one on sale.  I'll tell Dan to let it be my Christmas present.)

Not good enough. Let's see if CALSGR8 or natsfan1a can do better.

I agree that ladies are discreet, but the ones I know seem to never shut up.... :roll:
