Most sports fans I know refuse to watch golf unless Tiger Woods is playing, and there’s a similar effect going on when Usain Bolt comes to the block for a race.

However, once federal investigators presented her with a vial of steroids, she recognized the vial as the “flaxeed oil” she had bene taking. Faced with the sudden realization that she was unknowingly taking steroids… she lied and said she didn’t know what they were…. which is what ultimately led to her being sent to prison.
It’s been a couple of months since Usain Bolt captured the world’s attention by smashing the competition in Beijing. Bryant Gumbel caught up with the Jamaican sprinter to recap his accomplishments and ask him what he thought of Carl Lewis implying Usain used performance enhancing drugs.
If you’ve visited any sports blog in the last year or two, you’ve most likely seen pictures of Allison Stokke and tons of people drooling over her. I guess I’m just one of those people who simply don’t get it, because I don’t see what the big deal is. This is no fault of Allison, because she can’t control how she’s covered … but jeez.
Is she attractive? Sure.
Is she any more attractive than the average woman on TV? Nope.
