More Steroid Madness

American football player John Matuszak

“Matuszak died of heart failure in 1987, allegedly due to his long-term use of steroids. His notorious hard-partying lifestyle won him a spot on Sport Illustrated’s 2005 list of the NFL’s all-time “bad boys.” Or maybe it was all the Baby Ruths and Rocky Road.”

I’m thinking it was all the Baby Ruths and Rocky Road that caused his heart failure - not the effing steroids!!

It could be a combination. Steroids done intelligently are safer than popular news would have us believe, but they are not without consequences or danger.
