The Liver King steroid scandal has stunned many corners of this great globe but none more than the one occupied by surfers. Performance enhancing drugs are generally not central to the conversation of those who find pleasure on the ocean’s waves but with professionals who compete at the highest levels advertising banned substances on social media and the clearly non-existent testing conducted by the World Surf League, many are wondering if they should be.
Might a little injection of pure testosterone give one the guts to paddle Teahupo’o, for example?
Well, noted surf personality interview Joe Rogan waded straight into the waters this weekend and used his new enemy, the once-great mixed martial artist Conor McGregor, as his punching bag.
McGregor, you certainly recall, bashed Rogan last week, calling him a “f*cking tick” while declaring, “Proper Twelve blow the jaw off you stick to that other gick boondock head.”
So Rogan’s latest guest was a performance enhancing drug expert and the two discussed McGregor’s astounding new musculature with Rogan declaring, “He’s taking his shirt off and posing constantly and he looks like his piss would melt that USADA cup. Like it would just like burn a hole right through the bottom of that USADA cup.”
The USADA is, of course, the United States Anti-Doping Agency.
And this spike in anabolic steroid interest hasn’t been so great since Brian “The Boz” Bosworth was playing football in Erik Logan’s Oklahoma. Since Ivan Drago went toe to with Rocky Balboa in Moscow on Christmas Day.
And, thus, I ask again for surfers everywhere. Should one of our heroes or heroines give it all a go?
Is one already giving it a go?
