Celebrate Good Times Or Maybe Push to the Finish

Don't read the link too carefully before you click or...OK it is hopeless to see the video without knowing what happened. But you can see how it happened. This happened to me at a2a once.

Watch Indoor Inline and Quad Speed Skating USARS National Championships Live Free Online

Oy. Sorry to be a bit late on this catch, but I got a note from some of our Tour to Tanglewood Roadskater.net team, saying they were off to the Nationals. I didn't follow up and they didn't tell me how to watch, but I finally got around to checking on it, and here's the info. I haven't looked at results so I don't know how they did. I missed a lot of it but the relays are today (Thursday) and there are some solo races left too, at least in the novice inline division. The quad speed events are yet to come, and that could be fun to watch too.

Champion Inline Speed Skater's Dad Gets Six for Juicing Son

Who knows how many inline skate races have been won by dopers! If you wanted to juice, certainly outdoor inline would be a good place to go, eh? It looks like USA Roller Sports (USARS) banned the skater, Corey Gahan, (some time ago) and his father, 41 years old, "is believed to be the first person convicted of providing illegal performance-enhancing drugs to an athlete." He apparently gave his 14-year-old (or younger) son steroids and human growth hormone.
