Mixing a Steroid-Viagra Cocktail?

Baseball star Rafael Palmiero has been suspended under major league baseball's newly stringent drug abuse policy. Like other athletes caught in the act, he denies "intentionally" using steroids.

The upright friend of President Bush vehemently denied before Congress that he'd ever used steroids, despite a claim by former teammate Jose Canseco that he had injected Palmiero.

Does it seem hard to believe the man might risk a potential berth in the Hall of Fame by taking a body-building substance that could help him earn him a berth in the Hall of Fame?

Would he risk his health and reputation?

Doesn't it seem hard to believe a young, virile, Latin ballplayer would take a drug with those organ-stressing, testicle-shrinking side effects. And, of course, we always figured Palmiero shilled for Viagra only because a relative suffered from erectile dysfunction — plus maybe the money. But so what if he used it himself? Just because he took one performance-enhancing drug doesn't mean he would take others...

Does it?
