Apparently Jose Canseco is taking his training for his next fight seriously, even if the opponent and date have yet to be determined. How serious? Details are still sketchy, but SPORTSbyBROOKS passed along the absolutely shocking news that Canseco is still juicing.
Apparently David Vassegh of KLAC-AM in Los Angeles reported that Canseco "was recently detained at the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego by Federal authorities for alleged possession of steroids." Here's the embarrassing part: the specific steroid Canseco was caught with was HCG, or human choronic gonadotropin. For all of you non-bodybuilders out there, HCG is frequently used "during and after steroid cycles to maintain and restore testicular size." Zing!
For a guy who's been so cavalier about his steroid use in the past, I'm a little shocked that Canseco thought he could get away with making a quick jaunt down to a Mexican pharmacy without drawing the attention from a customs agent. I mean, that's what drug mules are for. (Unless ... maybe Canseco is so hard up for cash he was the drug mule? Hmmm ...)
