Shawne Merriman Suspended
Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman has been suspended for steroid use. Next to Ricky Williams, Merriman has to be the biggest name that I can think of to get busted for steroids. That is, if people have actually heard of him, which they should have given that he had 10 sacks as a rookie last year and had posted 5.5 through the first seven games of this season.
It's been a good weekend for baseball, what with the world series starting, a new labor deal around the corner, and an athlete from another sport making headlines for steroids for a change.
