We know that A-Rod tested positive for the steroid primobolan from Sports Illustrated's big scoop of a couple weekends ago. Today Alex Rodriguez explained that his cousin told him of a drug called Boli or Bole. I have heard some comment that they don't know what drug Alex was referring to.
So for all you non-bilinguals, let me help you out. "Boli/Bole" is what you get when you shorten primoBOLan with a Spanish accent. I'm not sure Alex knew this back then, but Boli is pretty clearly just a Spanish corruption of the drug's actual name, which few roiders were probably that interested in even knowing.
Also, let me make a quick observation for all those people who think it's impossible A-Rod would put something in his body without totally knowing what it was or how to use it. I have a friend who is a former amateur body-builder. At that time in his life he used steroids. He was telling me and another friend about that period and my friend asked him if he cycled on and off of the steroids (as you're supposed to). He responded that yes he did, and that he made sure to do his research before beginning to take them. Apparently a lot of other body builders were also taking steroids but doing so improperly. These are people who get big for a living, and yet they don't necessarily know how to properly take steroids. So can I believe that a ball player getting supplement advice from his cousin might not use steroids properly? Yes, I can.
