Pack Your Bags Tiger you are going down.
December 15, 2009
As I predicted weeks ago and no one believed me. Tiger is going down. Who wants him out? I do not know. Could be rivals, racists, or just rats. But good-ol’ Tiger is going down. Here is the latest as the last of his mistress surface…
New York, NY (Sports Network) – A Canadian doctor who has treated golfer Tiger Woods and other sports stars is under investigation by the FBI and suspected of providing athletes with performance-enhancing drugs, according to a newspaper report.The New York Times reported Monday night that the FBI’s investigation of Anthony Galea stems from his arrest Oct. 15 in Toronto by Canadian police.The paper reported Galea’s legal problems began in late September when his assistant was stopped by authorities crossing the United States border from Canada. Inside her car, authorities found Galea’s medical bag, which contained four drugs. Among the drugs were human growth hormone, which is banned by the World Anti- Doping Agency, and Actovegin, a drug extracted from calf’s blood, the paper reported.
Importing, using or selling Actovegin in the U.S. is illegal.
According to the Times, Galea has used a blood-spinning technique, known as platelet-rich plasma therapy, to help athletes recover from injuries involving knees, elbows and Achilles’ tendons. His only involvement with Woods dates to February and March of this year when the paper reported Galea flew to Orlando, Fla., at least four times to give Woods the platelet therapy.
More bad News for Tiger. Maybe a sponsor wants out. Or maybe the racist golf old guard wants him out of the sport. Or maybe Phil really does hate Tiger with a passion. But Tiger is gonna slowly disappear and not even Oprah can save him. He might never play again. Golf does not need him anymore now that the sport is bigger than ever and frankly I haven’t heard anyone stick up for him.
