  1. If it’s a professional contest there should be no “prohibited’ drugs. It’s tantamount to outlawing breast implants for strippers and hookers. It is only entertainment.

  2. TIME FOR SOME BEANER POETRY:

    IS THIS THE ONE WHOSE BOOBS WERE TOO BIG FOR THE COURT, OR AM I CONFUSING WITH A DIFFERENT SPORT?

  3. Next thing you know the Mexicans are going to be reproducing here and we are going to end up with Loco Beaner’s.

    That can’t be good.

  4. I saw her win the Australian in Melbourne in 2008. Being there was one of the highlights of my life. I wasn’t going to get tickets for any of the women’s matches. I’m so glad I did. They were a blast to watch-man do they hammer the ball.

    Personally, if it’s the pros, ahh what’s the dif what the hell they take? And she was talking this for 10 years with no beef?

  5. Among the most amazing physical feats I’ve witnessed were Mark McGwire’s batting practices. His homers landed in the upper deck more often than not. But the other players could barely get hits over the wall. Phenomenal. I’m impressed McGwire took dangerous chemicals so I could be entertained.
