Rashard Lewis: Busted



I've got to be honest - of all the possible candidates in the NBA to be caught with excess testosterone in their blood, Rashard Lewis might have ranked at the bottom.

Right next to Luke Ridnour or Darius Miles.

I mean, come on, the guy's thinner than the premise of a Rick Reilly column, for crying out loud!

But, there you go, according to ESPN, Lewis will be suspended for 10 games at the start of the 09-10 season after DHEA was detected in his bloodstream.

I'm sure thousands of words will be uttered in the NBA universe about how this is "the tip of the iceberg" in regards to steroids and the league. We'll hear the requisite "it was a matter of time" stuff, the "does this taint the Magic's title run" stories, and the "who's next" speculation.

For now, though, we're left with this question to ponder: How bad a rebounder would Rashard be if he didn't take the drugs?

I remember thinking during some of those post-season post-game press conferences this spring that Rashard's voice sounded huskier.

Maybe that thing that was growing on his chin during the playoffs was involuntary.

Is there such a thing as over-the-counter Roid-Rage?

This is off-topic but I just read that the Superstolens lost almost 10 million dollars last year.

At least they're not trying to sell Sonics gear on their site anymore. Douches.

Where'd you read about the $10 mil. loss? I haven't seen anything like that myself.

A fellow blogger posted it here:

And he found it on Forbes page here:

According to that list, only Dallas and Denver had bigger losses.

If I'm not mistaken, those numbers were based upon the Sonics' last season in Seattle. As much as I like to ridicule the Sonix new owners, I'm quite sure the team did much better this season.

The Sweetest New Bridal Gowns
All of the top designers have just shown their latest collections of bridal gowns for next spring. Many of the styles were outrageous and dramatic, but there were also some wedding gowns that were unabashedly pretty and feminine. For more on the sweetest new bridal gowns, read on...

It seems as though many of the gown designers this season were so crazy about trying interesting new techniques to rucsh, gather, and ruffle fabric that they forgot about making dresses that a bride would actually feel pretty wearing. Some of the more adventurous styles might make a woman feel chic or bold, or even glamorous, but many of the new gowns bear little resemblance to the timeless bridal gowns that every young girl dreams of one day wearing. In other words, they are so of the moment that they are not timeless.
