Fernando Who?

Yahoos Sports | 08-12-2022
Padres star suspended 80 games for performance-enhancing drugs:
https://sports.yahoo.com/padres-star...230137474.html

Quote:
MLB's full statement:
"The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that San Diego Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has received an 80-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Clostebol, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

The suspension of Tatis is effective immediately."
Compare the statement by MLB to the way PEDs are handled in hors...

Nevermind.

With word association Fernando makes me think of Fernando Valenzuela and the hot start he had to his pitching career, over 40 years ago.

Fernando and I are close to the same age, he is a couple months older. I think it is funny when I look at people that I thought were fat back in the day
and now think "I wish I look like that." My issue was I always ate a lot, but worked it off, requiring little sleep, I exercised 3 hours 6 days a week, and had time for everything else. Finally at 38 I needed a spinal fusion from an earlier weight lifting accident. No more power lifting, no more boxing work outs, no more jogging. At one time I had the strength of 3 adult men, but I also ate as much as 3 adult men. The chiseled out of granite 220# went to a 250-260# marshmallow man. At least I haven't got heavier, I once could easily lift 315# overhead, now carrying more than 25# hurts and today I can't get help for the pain like in days gone by.


Just a personal experience, nothing against what you said. I used to think how can that pudgy SOB throw that fast? I was chiseled out of
granite could bench 470# and the fastest I ever could throw a baseball was 70 MPH.


Enchiladas, with sour cream, guacamole and hot salsa? That sounds great!
