There is a silent epidemic in the world of sports, but it may not come in a bottle or a syringe. The issue of performance enhancing drugs has become a topic of discussion in the world of sports. Recently, the baseball hearings before Congress regarding steroid use generated some excitement. The end result is still in question. Some felt it was a public relations move that will result in little change. Others felt that any spotlight on a back room issue was valuable. And others hoped that the culprit had been identified and with the proper regulations and penalties the evil could be restrained and eliminated. And in so doing, the integrity of the game would be preserved.
