BALCO FALL-OUT. So, out of the long BALCO investigation, confessions and inplications about the use of performance-enhancing steroids by elite athletes begin to roll: Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees (for now), track Olympian Marion Jones, heralded super slugger Mr. Bonds... Who's next?
DENY, DENY, DENY. These athletes and their attorneys used the same strategy that only serves to deepen the pit into which cheaters and liars fall: deny, deny, deny. And it appears such athletes were either so brazen or so dependent on their drugs for top performance, that they continued to dope during the ongoing investigation.
