With nine seasons left on his 10 year $275 million deal with the Yankees, Alex Rodriguez is inches away from stepping into the new $1.5 billion dollar Yankees Stadium where he is expected to break Barry Bonds' home run record. That would surely be an awe-inspiring feeling, except for the fact that Rodriguez is under intense scrutiny right now.
A California fitness trainer is suing the video game company Nintendo, asking them to pull its Wii Fit games from shelves claiming it's "contributing to the epidemic of obesity."
Sometime in early 2004, then IRS special agent Jeff Novitzky (he works for the FDA now), entered a diagnostic testing facility in Long Beach, California with a search warrant to confiscate 10 urine samples belonging to clients of BALCO. Novitzky left with not 10, but over 1,200. He took them all! He also took a computer disk which had the positive steroid test results for 104 players. Interestingly, at the time, Barry Bonds was in Novitzky's crosshairs; however, Bonds was not one of the names on the failed drug test list. Nevertheless, when this evidence was presented in court, the judge sealed the results. Those records are still sealed today where they sit in a 9th circuit court.
