I think AA61hvy, it was probably both. We still don't know, in many respects, what 'roids do to you long-term, and we're damn sure what coke does to the body long-term.

Mike and Mike on ESPN Radio this morning were talking with Dick Vitale, and asked him if this unfortunate demise of Caminiti would make other atheletes who abuse their bodies with drugs, think twice now. The conclusion of all three of them-and myself-is that it won't even register with most these guys. Many have been trying to get "the edge" since High School, all in the name of short-term fame and worldly wealth. They won't even pay attention to it-until they feel the pain in their chest at age 45, and realize what a fool they were.
