During yesterday's "Mike & Mike" radio show, hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic discussed steroid use. Golic was a defensive lineman for Notre Dame, the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins.
Greenberg: You were a player in the National Football League for nine years.
Greenberg: And you were clean. You didn't use steroids.
Golic: No, no. I did try steroids. For about six weeks in an off-season. Yeah. When I had blown my shoulder out. I actually didn't do it for six weeks. I did it for a few weeks and stopped because it had kind of a bad effect as I was lifting.
Greenberg: Okay. Let's say for the sake of this discussion you did not.
Uh, Golic used steroids? Did we know this? Did he have a legal prescription or did he just admit to breaking the Federal Anabolic Steroid Control Act? And what was the "bad effect" that the drugs did to him? Unfortunately, Greenberg, a newsman who also hosts ESPN SportsCenter, did not pursue this line of questioning on his co-host.
