With the flood of steroid stories out there here's a look at the lighter side.


It is a dark day in sports! Steroid abuse has finally reached all corners of the sporting world! 

At the 2011 World Series of Poker final table yesterday, November 9th, had to be stopped with four players remaining due to an fantastical episode of extreme roid rage.

Former Mr Olympia and now professional poker player Guy Littlehand after receiving arguably one of the worst beats in final table history grabbed dealer Jon Pitterdeck and literally ripped his hands off blaming them for a queen coming on the river giving his opponent Norm MacDonald four queens beating Littlehands four Jacks.

All on live television.

Four security officers responded and after a prolonged struggle Littlehand was taken down by an extravagent wrestling takedown by former wrestler and now head of casino security Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Littlehand had been severely agitated earlier in the day when Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, who was second in chips at that time, asked him to stop flexing his forearms because it was bending the cards. 

Daniel Negreanu reading the situation perfectly asked Matusow to let it slide before more than the cards were bent.

Authorities are investigating the incident and the final table has been postponed indefinitely. Norm MacDonald was the only player of the four not to make a statement due to his jaw being frozen in a dropped position from his miracle queen.

In a related story Phill Hellmuth is suing the WSOP blaming the roid rage incident for him being eliminated from the final table the day before.
