so it's come to this.

(Joshua Masayoshi Huff)

Steroids have been a hot topic here at the Collective--and Congress' hearing on MLB and steroids starts tomorrow (and can be seen on ESPN).

Who would have thought it would extend beyond sports? Well, it has.

Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Timbaland, Wyclef Jean and Tyler Perry have all been connected with steroids. And why not? They really are performance enhancing drugs--and it's not just athletes who have to "perform", right?

Maybe Fat Joe was right two years ago when he said that 50 Cent was on steroids.
"Them steroids is getting to him," Joe said. "He ain't built like that. These dudes is hilarious to me."

I feel like everyone is doing steroids these days. Athletes. Musicians. Actors. The guy who runs the convenience store down the street. Am I the only one not doing them? Are steroids the new cigarettes? The new cocaine? Are they that in vogue?

It's only a matter of time before we see teachers being tested not only for illegal recreation drugs, but for performance enhancing drugs as well. That's probably a gold mine right there--who could seriously keep up with a bunch of seven-year-olds for nine months straight?

Not me...well, not without steroids or HGH, anyway.
