WASHINGTON (AP) -- A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens for allegedly lying to Congress about using steroids. Clemens faces charges of obstruction of Congress, making false statements and perjury. The former Major League baseball pitcher and his former trainer, Brian McNamee, testified under oath at a 2008 hearing before a House committee and contradicted each other about whether Clemens had used the banned substances. McNamee has told federal agents, baseball investigator George Mitchell and the committee that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001.

It wasn't really a news flash to most baseball fans that major and minor league players are using steroids. Still fewer people were surprised when it was revealed in the Wall Street Journal on Friday that Jose Canseco was one of the more prominent players using the drug. In fact, I think Jose himself was the only one who believed he wasn't using. What troubles me most is that a majority of people - including players, fans and some baseball officials - seems to think this is all OK, that shooting up has simply become a part of the game.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Brian McNamee injected Roger Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs more often than he previously claimed, the pitcher's former personal trainer said in a prepared statement, released Wednesday before the start of their high-stakes testimony before Congress. "I have helped taint our national pastime," McNamee said. Clemens has denied the accusations that became public in December's Mitchell Report. The seven-time Cy Young award winner repeated those denials under oath to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

With all the hubbub about A-Rod and his past steroid use, I have to ask: Are you surprised? Our sports culture has systematically forgotten the value of hard work and fair competition. And it prays to the gods of chemistry to get overnight results. The "juicers" have all but ruined U.S. Olympic track and field with numerous, high-profile, steroid busts. Major League Baseball is under intense federal scrutiny with several players facing possible jail time. Even on the high school level, more and more players and even coaches are being busted for selling or using anabolic steroids.

Phew. What you smell is not that of a dead skunk on the road. That is the smell of the deal that Victor Conte cut with federal prosecutors in San Francisco. A four-month jail sentence in return for admitting he distributed steroids and laundered money? A lousy four months for admitting the obvious? Folks, this means you can nearly destroy a billion dollar sport, trample on the laws of the land, leave a trail of destroyed careers and bodies in your wake and spend all of four months behind bars.

Remember the good old days of professional sports? Way back when a fastball under the chin didn't always incite a bench-clearing brawl ... Way back when football players started playing without facemasks and then went to a two-bar guard ... Way back when professional basketball players didn't run into the stands chasing down fans ... Way back when a 250-yard drive with a persimmon driver was a huge accomplishment ... Sound...

When young guys start training for muscle, they usually go about it the wrong way. They usually do too much too often, and end up either injured or discouraged. I was a skinny kid who was pretty fortunate to have had a few good early influences to put me in the right direction. Jim Deaner of the Boys and Girls Clubs built my foundation, and Gary Knepper of North Hagerstown High School helped build the house on top of it. During the years of steady training and solid nutrition, I built a respectable physique that I became known for in my professional wrestling years.

MAUGANSVILLE -- Like a cart pulled by a horse, the prices of some baseball cards have tumbled along with the fallen stars of the steroid age. Gary Care of Green Spring, W.Va., pointed to a Mark McGwire rookie card on the table before him. The same card selling for $200 or $250 when McGwire swatted a record-breaking home run in 1998 now has a price of $25. Anything related to Barry Bonds, the all-time home run king who, like McGwire, is suspected of steroid use? You'd be lucky to give it away, Care said Sunday at a sports card show at the Maugansville Ruritan.

When young guys start training for muscle, they usually go about it the entirely wrong way. They usually do too much too often and end up injured or discouraged. I was a skinny kid who was pretty fortunate to have had a few good early influences to put me in the right direction early on. Jim Deaner of the Boys & Girls clubs built my foundation, and Gary Knepper of North Hagerstown High School helped build the house on top of it. Over the course of the years of ravenous reading, steady training and solid nutrition, I built a respectable physique that I became known for in my professional wrestling years.

This week's question: After confessing to steroid use, which do you believe will best describe Alex Rodriguez's season this summer with the New York Yankees? o He'll hit 50 home runs because of the lingering effects of the juice. - 3 votes (8 percent) o He'll hit 20 home runs because he's not on the juice. - 2 votes (5 percent) o He'll have a bad season because of all the scrutiny. - 16 votes (41 percent) o He'll have a good season because he's come clean and the pressure's off. - 9 votes (23 percent)

The Maryland State Racing Commission has approved a ban on anabolic steroids for race horses and - pending approval from state lawmakers - it will go into effect at the start of the Laurel Park meeting in January, 2009. "We've been working on this issue for quite awhile, even before the controversy involving Big Brown in the Kentucky Derby," said Michael Hopkins, executive director of the commission. "We had some studies done on proper screening methods and other issues and I think we're ready to move on. This will be good for Maryland racing.
