The Washington Steroiders?

First, the AP article talking about the VA doc who claims to have provided Washington Capitals and Washington Nationals players with steroids (via Yahoo! Sports).

Finally, me. This is bullshit, and the guy is grasping at straws that aren't there. Around half a dozen Capitals played in the Vancouver Winter Olympics, which tests blood for nearly everything from performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) to red blood cell count. Positive for steroids? Banned. Positive for masking agents? Banned. Hormone levels don't seem right? Temporary suspension and retest a few days later. The point here is hopefully pretty clear. The players on the Capitals (at least the good enough ones to make the Olympics - the same ones who carry their club team) are clean and this doc is lying.

Then again, the Nats could probably use it...
