The arrival of the Hall of Fame ballot in the mail used to be a highly anticipated event in my household. I couldn't wait to see the first-time names because memories of those players would come rushing back. I looked forward to exploring the names and numbers on the ballot before deciding who I thought was deserving of a spot in Cooperstown. Now, thanks to the taint of the steroid era, the arrival of the ballot brings dread instead of anticipation, suspicion instead of admiration.

Barring an appeal, the sentencing of Barry Bonds on Friday in a San Francisco courtroom will bring the federal government's nearly decade-long investigation of a Northern California-based steroids ring to an anticlimactic end.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - Four athletes tested positive for steroids during the 2010-11 school year, NJSIAA officials announced Wednesday. It was the most positive tests in the five-year history of the testing program. The previous high was two, said NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko. "It only reinforces the need for testing and how important it is to maintain this program," Timko said. "One [positive test] is too many. " Timkos said that because of confidentiality rules, the NJSIAA could not say what sports or even what seasons the positive tests came from.

WASHINGTON - Prosecutors said Wednesday that needles and cotton balls Roger Clemens' former trainer says he used to inject the star pitcher tested positive for Clemens' DNA and anabolic steroids - evidence the defense said was faked. Assistant U.S. attorney Steven Durham revealed the results during opening arguments in Clemens' trial on charges of lying to Congress about using performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens' attorney Rusty Hardin responded that he won't dispute the needles contain Clemens' DNA and steroids, but accused the trainer Brian McNamee of "mixing" it up. "He manufactured this stuff," Hardin told jurors.

HAMILTON, N.J. - A new state strategy unveiled Thursday to combat illegal steroid use by New Jersey police allows departments to test officers for steroids but falls short of more drastic action taken in other parts of the country. Flanked by prosecutors, police chiefs and medical officials, Attorney General Paula Dow listed a multitiered strategy for curbing misuse and improper prescribing of anabolic steroids and other muscle-building drugs, a problem that has cost taxpayers millions of dollars and jeopardized the community's trust in law enforcement.

LOS ANGELES - A barbarian has needs - a sword, a shield and about 56 chicken breasts a week. That's what Jason Momoa ate while filming "Conan the Barbarian," this summer's big-screen reboot of the series that launched Arnold Schwarzenegger's action-movie career in 1982. Over a few months in 2010, Momoa, a 6-foot-4-inch Hawaiian actor and model, added about 30 pounds of muscle to his 205-pound frame to play two high-profile, bare-chested plunderers - Conan and Khal Drogo, the 7-foot-tall warrior-king marauding on HBO's "Game of Thrones.
