Say It Ain't So, Jose!

Having this weigh on his mind could explain why he's played so poorly of late.

Propecia is a banned substance? You have got to be kidding me. Doesn't the NHL recognize what wearing that sweaty helmet does to a man's hairline?

This is some more bad karma a few days before the Olympics.

I suppose something worse could happen to the sport of hockey in the next few days ... but I would be hard-pressed to think of what that could be.

What could be worse?

The news that Gretzky wears a wig.

What the hell is with blogger? It is still acting up. It told me there were only two comments in here.

I was going to say something like "Lemieux Moves Penguins to New Orleans in 2006-07", "Ex-Canadiens Implicated in Human Sacrifices, Satanic Cult" or maybe "Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup". Yet somehow none of the above seems anywhere close to as bad as the image of NHL players placing bets with the bartender in Tony Soprano's strip club while getting doping advice in the corner booth from Jose Canseco.

Well, except maybe that last one.

And Andy, the Globe's story gives the same information but without throwing you off without using the brand name: "A source said the substance is believed to be finasteride, a masking agent for steroids that is also commonly found in hair-restoration drugs and has led to a spate of recent doping cases."

Oh. My. God. Are you trying to tell me athletes, overpaid hockey players, are gambling on football and trying to prevent hair loss? What's next? A story about NHL athletes spawning illegitimate children? It could drive the NHL into the ground for good, I tell ya!
