The sport of baseball is facing its toughest test in recent history. The admission by Alex rodriguez of him taking drugs from the 2001-2003 Major League baseball season has struck sports fans across America. The emotions were running high as you can see on the video i posted with A rod, as fans like to call him came out about this awful wrong doing. It is not just him being hounded in the press. Barry bonds another baseball player has been subject to a number of court hearings to discus his dealings with performance enhancing drugs. From my experinces as a young boy growing up in England, i had never heard of athletes taking drugs but since i have moved to the states i have recognised a number of athletes that are taking performance enhances and i cannot think why this is? Obviously it makes them a better player but why not work yiour bum off in the gym and on the training field and get better that way. It frustrates me to look at these amazing athletes have a doubt at the back of my mind where i fear they may be on drugs. Thoughts please...
Hi, My name is Joe wood, i am a sophomore here at UNM. i am currently majoring in Journalism and i play for the men's tennis team. I come from Sheffield, England so Albuquerque is a whole other world than what i am used to but having been here a year and a half now, i am starting to get used to the climate, food and other general cultural differences that i struggled to grasp at the start.
Tennis takes up a lot of free time but i enjoy playing soccer (football) and going to watch the sporting events here at UNM and have just about learnt the rules for American football!
