Jeff Seidel Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 10, 2018 KENORA, Ontario – Joe Murphy hunches over, unable to speak, unable to respond. His eyes float to the back of his head. His forehead creases with wrinkles. Frozen in place. Still strong and athletic, the muscles in his arms tense. His hands contort, his fingers curl and lock in place, becoming rigid as a brick. Down the right side of his neck, there is an old scar, near the jugular, where he says he was knifed. Murphy, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the Detroit Red Wings in 1986, starts mumbling under his breath and rocks back and forth. His head is nearly bald, his face weathered, like an old piece of wood that was forgotten and left outside.

Drug free sport banned substances list
(Reuters) – Golf will never be completely drug free according to retired South African golfer Gary Player who has also questioned why it took so long for the British Open to implement blood testing as part of its anti-doping regulations. The tournament, in its 147th edition, will introduce blood testing this week.

Are we ever going to be able to stop it? No. There’s too much involved. That’s the world we live in.” The 82-year-old said while golf and tennis are probably among the cleanest sports there were benefits of doping for a professional golfer. “It makes you stronger,” Player … [Read more...] about Golf will never be drug-free, says Player

President Trump arrives on Marine One yesterday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. (Carolyn Kaster/AP) With Breanne Deppisch and Joanie Greve. THE BIG IDEA: President Trump sometimes seems impervious to the second and third order consequences of his decisions. Several recent developments have highlighted the unintended — though often foreseeable — consequences the president’s policies are having on his own supporters. In many cases, he’s following through on campaign promises — like cutting the flow of immigrants, renegotiating trade deals and rolling back regulations put in place by Barack Obama. But in the deeply interconnected global economy, the devil is always in the details and the implementation of some policies may do more to hurt than help the people who put their faith in him to fix their problems. Here are four examples: -- Small business owners who voted for Trump might be forced to shut down … [Read more...] about The Daily 202: Trump supporters suffer unintended consequences of his policies
