Bode Miller argues steroids concern overblown: Performance enhancing drugs for everyone!
Steroids are all rage in sports talk today. Floyd Landis clings to his soiled yellow jersey, no doubt thinking up his 12th outlandish, completely illogical excuse for his cheating right now. The journalists who wrote the Barry Bonds roids book are being threatened with jail time if they don’t spit on the first amendment and reveal sources they promised confidentiality. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem is being forced to do his embarrassing tap dance on the subject more and more.
My man Bode Miller scoffs at all this uproar from the unenlightened, wimpy man masses. Yes, that Bode Miller, the Winter Olympics international punchline turned minor league baseball highlight catch man (no joke, Bode made SportsCenter for his grab in a one-game stint this summer).
In an exclusive interview from Lake Tahoe earlier this summer, Bode all but cackled when I asked if performance enhancing drugs were hurting sports.
“What do you call aspirin?,” Miller shot back. “What do you call Creatine? What do you call vitamin C? Those are all the same thing. It’s not any different than anything else. I don’t know why everybody takes issue with (steroids).
“I think they should not worry about it and let athletes do what they want to do, to be in proper training, proper diet. I wish the most performance enhancing stuff on everybody in their life.
“I would wish you to enhance your performance as much as you could. Something that kills or causes bodily harm, that’s not performance enhancing.”
Yes, I believe Bode urged me to use steroids. That’s the kind of love he has in his big heart. And he never even saw me attempt to play golf.

Just don’t bug me. I’m busy. Is it the clear and then the cream … or the cream and then the clear … Damn it …
Maybe, I need to call Bode. He’s always good for advice.

As I wrote here, the danger of steroids in golf is not really about extra length off the tee. You're right, Brandon, 300 vs. 310 is not that big of a deal. But steroids can (or DO?) help pro golfers artificially recover from the nagging aches and pains that will slow them down over the course of the season (especially the older guys).
