Never suggested that he was the only one, just surprising if Fuentes was the one for all the pros. As I said we know so little. What are the logistics of blood doping in tennis? :D Roland Garros and Wimbledon you would probably be okay, but New York, Melbourne?

The way Puerto disappeared, makes me believe that the Spanish had a lot more to lose than gain. You would think Fuentes had more La Liga clients than Serie A. If every name was uncovered, the top sports in Spain would have taken a massive hit, would the impact be the same in the UK, Germany, Italy?

Spanish soccer clubs linked to Fuentes? - cyclingnews.com - December 8 2007

Again from from what I have been told, some journalists wanted to expose footballers, except they got a warning that could have an "accident", so nothing happened. There is a lot of money in football, being the world game, and a lot of mafia led betting rings and of course they would stand to lose a lot of money if a lot bigg name footballers went down.

It sounds like something out of a Hollywood movie.

ITS ALL GOOD DUDES meth is totally nothing but a party drug and it's totally completely ludicrous for anyone to think that a stimulant such as meth provides an athletic gain both in terms of mental focus and physical endurance even though cyclists have used stimulants since they were invented and LOL there are homeless people that are addicted to meth so there is no possible way that it was used as a stimulant by this tennis player who by the way deserves nothing but our sympathy and if anyone should think anything that is remotely different from what I type here then you're just a hater brah and you love cancer and hate excellence.

Brah stay the f out of my neighborhood!! Meth is a party drug? If your party involves tooth loss and all those open, oozing pimple things all over your body, that ain't no party around here. You need to go to the site @faces of meth(?) some jail employee/cop takes pictures of people after they have been arrested for meth, each time they get popped,they look 10 years older. Doing a toot of anything is a party I guess but meth and crack seem to bring you to your knees within a short period. But it does keep the chicks skinny if that the way you like em. Smoke on brah.

That post was sarcasm/satire. I shouldn't have had to spell that out for you...

Methamphetamine is certainly a PED. Increased alertness, decreased fatigue, these are pretty beneficial gains for tennis or cycling. But in its crystal form, meth is definitely not performance enhancing. It's far too addictive. You couldn't compete as a cyclist because you would sell your bike before the sign-in and spend the day in your room smoking the proceeds. Only to steal the team bus when you finally emerged. You couldn't hold a tennis racket and those big shorts would fall right off your withered body. And good luck getting endorsement deals with a nice case of meth mouth.


Oh yeah, Ms. Graf's legs were amazing!
 
Off topic but for me the far more interesting story from the book is that Agassi says that he hates tennis. Always has.

The psychology of that is something cyclists can certainly identify with. That love hate thing.

Brooke Shields is pretty!

C&P from a Sally Jenkins article:
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1006322/1/index.htm

"The autographing over, Shields and Agassi dash into a chauffeured sedan and travel a few blocks to an Italian bistro, Becco, where they order champagne; their schedules have been so hectic since he returned from Australia that they haven't enjoyed a proper toast. Then, over pumpkin ravioli and a bottle of Chianti, they narrate the story of their romance. It is like dining with nuzzling deer.

They were set up by the wife of saxophonist Kenny G, a mutual friend.

Agassi and Shields are convinced that they fell in love via fax during months of communicating without meeting face-to-face. When he finally went to Los Angeles and took her to dinner in December 1993, both were instantly smitten. They sat in a restaurant until it was ready to close. Agassi, as is his custom, kept his back to the room to avoid being recognized, his hair a cascade over his collar. "Are you ladies enjoying your meal?" the waitress asked.

Agassi and Shields are contemplating marriage, although they have no specific plans. Agassi's friends are betting something will happen within the next two years. "Brooke is not the only reason I've come to terms with so many things, but she helps," Agassi says.

In Las Vegas he is not just Andre Agassi, he is Andre Agassi Enterprises. He has a suite of offices in the U.S. Bank Building, right next door to Merrill Lynch. He employs a staff that numbers between 13 and 15 people at any given time. A big chunk of the budget goes into his plane, which costs $740,000 annually to operate. He bleeds money."

My God, Jenkins is a terrible writer, isn't she.

If you didn't get it from the post you quote, he later said he was being sarcastic.

Can you at least try and put up a veneer of trying to keep up around here? My goodness, it's tiresome.

No, he is a fooking moron. You can't fix that.
