Roid rage is a myth? What do you say about that wrestler dude who killed his fam then himself - allegedly due to 'roid rage? Is that the media simply making it a sexy story?

Every few years or so, I have to get steroids to combat poison ivy. Only thing that seems to get larger for me is my belly.

Sorry, it's hard for me to grasp your writing style since you write a blog three times a year.

Have you noticed my blog entries are getting lengthier? It's the steroids, baby. I'm able to go longer and recover faster. Hmmm...maybe it's that other pill I take.

your a dumb f@#k. Steroids wouldn't help a golfer worth a s#!t. Obviously you don't play golf. A meat head would have difficulty swinging the club. I'm just a little guy (who doesn't work out) and I will crush a ball further than you can see. So find something else to talk about because you don't know what the hell your talking about.

tom: Reading comprehension's not really your strong suit, is it?

My whole point is that taking steroids does NOT have to result in a golfer becoming a "meat head." Just like a proper, clean exercise regime, steroids could help golfers' bodies recover. And especially for older guys on the tour, the non stars who have to play the majority of the events on the schedule, muscle fatigue and the stress of repetition are a factor - why do you think so many successful golfers are working out these days? Exercise gives them an advantage. Working out and mixing steroids into the mix (even in non-meat head dosages) would give the steroid user an unfair advantage. And you'd not be able to visually separate the guys who work out from the guys who work out AND use prohibited performance enhancers. So again, for tom and the rest of the short yellow bus crowd: One can take banned substances such as steroids to gain an unfair advantage, but NOT bulk up like some pro wrestler or bodybuilder or Barry Bonds. And the only way to ID those cheaters would be to utilize cutting-edge testing methods.

"Roid Rage" a myth? Your entry seems like a rage! References to ripping someone's head off and throwing it into the Barry Burn and smashing someone's face with a 9-iron?! How untidy. Let's settle this like real golfing gentlemen - 72 holes in the AZ desert in mid-July. Bring it on!

High noon. I like it, Marrandette. I'll be there. But first, off to the gym for my afternoon workout.

Forget about the steroid use. Shouldn't
the focus be on the golfers who take the
beta blockers? This is more of an unfair
advantage than steroids for this sport.

Evidently the beta blockers have been downgraded in use for all but the most serious heart problems, due to a penchant for causing type 2 diabetes. The Mayo clinic lists the following as side effects: "Common side effects of beta blockers include fatigue, cold hands, dizziness and weakness." Not exactly the thing I'm looking for on the putting green.

Mark, there will be no working out to enhance one's physique and improve one's game. Take drugs, it's faster and far less exhausting.

And where were you at noon yesterday?

I was pumping iron. See, if I don't, all these steroids I've been taking won't have any effect.

Some of our commentors don't get innuendo. Did I invent a word there? I got the red underline. How about readers instead of commentors.

BTuck: Check out my latest post. I may just best my personal record for posts in a year. Now shut up and get back to work.

Steroids are NOT the only performance enhancing drug. For any one who has tried anything and just about everything to play better golf, it is easy to identify players on tour who are on drugs. Beta blockers, benzo's, muscle relaxers, and antihistamines are all being used out there.
