via ESPN.Com- “HOUSTON — Not long after a bye week trip to Mexico, Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown got a letter from the NFL informing him of a violation of the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, having tested positive for clenbuterol. Brown hadn’t done anything nefarious, but he still faced a 10-game suspension. The culprit? Mexican beef. According to sources, the NFL Players Association proved to the NFL the burgers and steaks Brown ate in Mexico caused the positive test. Consequently, on Tuesday, the drug program’s independent administrator sent a letter warning players that consumption of too much meat in Mexico and China could cause a positive test for the anabolic substance clenbuterol. Clenbuterol has been used to control asthma and as an unregulated weight-loss supplement. It is not used in any medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is banned by the NFL.”
WOW. A couple things I want to touch on here. First, why the fuck are they being tested for a weight loss substance? I could be wrong but I am pretty sure Duane Brown is not looking to shed some pounds. Second, I think I may have found the man who enjoys a good burger more than me. 10 burgers on a vacay is some serious work man. Third, this quote caught my eye…
“The Texans will travel to Mexico to play the Oakland Raiders on November 21, but Brown isn’t likely to take a leisure trip to Mexico any time soon. Sources say if he does, he’ll stick to chicken and fish.”
Obviously not reliable sources. The guy ate 10 burgers and 2 steaks in less than a week, fuck off telling me he is going to be laying off the beef for the first ever game in Mexico. I heard Wilfork’s cooking up fajitas for the boys.
P.S. I’m a firm believer of steroids in sports, especially baseball. Show me the guy who wants to watch a good pitching battle and I’ll show you a virgin.
