    I wonder if she'll end up having to pay that money back she sued Balco for for publicly saying she used performance-enhancing drugs.

    This surprises how many?

    There has been so much hefty circumstantial evidence already, that if you thought she hadn't taking anything, you were really fooling yourself.

    I'd chase her too. She is cute.

    So are they going to give the medals to the runnerups?
