I guess it's a big deal when people talk about athletes cheating by taking steroids or other Performance Enhancing Drugs. Ask Sammy. Or A-Rod. Or Jose. Everyone hates that guy. If you've read his book, though, I think he's the one who has the best perspective on the issue.
My stance is that if sports are where we strive for excellence, then that is exactly where we should be looking at pushing the envelope with drugs. Sports have already helped us with medical and physical training advances. If drugs offer another avenue to allow greater realization of human potential in a physical sense, I'm all for it.
I think the dangers of steroids are overblown. Contrast the NFL, which supposedly is against the use of steroids (largely because of their health effects), but which downplays the adverse effects of playing f@$king football. Seriously?
