Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News Tactfully Says Tiger Woods Juiced

Sports reporters have been extremely reluctant to discuss Tiger Woods and PEDs.  Is that changing?  There is only one way to interpret Mike Lupica’s words in his latest column about A-Rod, Tiger Woods, and Kobe Bryant: he thinks Woods juiced.  Take a look:

In 2009, of course, he [A-Rod] had his greatest postseason moment, leading the Yankees to the one World Series they have won since 2000, and rode through the Canyon of Heroes eight months after admitting to being a juicer for the first time. From there, he essentially went straight to Anthony Bosch. This, don’t you know, was after having once been treated by Anthony Galea — the noted Canadian sports physician and patron saint of HGH — the way Tiger once was, apparently because all the good sports doctors in this country were too busy to treat guys like them.

Boom!  Lupica is clearly saying there is no reason A-Rod and Woods would have used Galea (an unlicensed Canadian doctor) other than for access to HGH.

I found Lupica’s description of A-Rod going straight to Bosch after Galea of particular interest because that also looks to be the path Woods followed.  Do you recall the charts I posted a couple of days ago?  If I were to redo the second one, I would add a new box for Woods’s move from Orlando to Miami (home of Biogenesis).  That move occurred in the middle of 2011, as his first Great Crash (in the OWGR rankings) was approaching its nadir.  A few months later, in December, Woods won his World Challenge (To Find A Sponsor) tournament and was off and running.

If you look at the timetable, you get this:  Woods is playing great, wins Player of the Year in 2009.  Galea is busted.  Not long afterward, Woods’s game goes into steep decline.  Woods moves to Miami, home of Bosch and Biogenesis.  A few months later, Woods is “back,” wins Player of the Year in 2013.  Bosch is busted.  Not long afterward, Woods’s game goes into steep decline.

    Great article. If Lupica and other writers of notoriety begin to openly question Tiger, it’s over. It will all eventually surface.

      Thanks. The golf-specific writers seem scared to death to even mention Galea or Bosch or PEDs. Maybe the general sports reporters will feel less vulnerable and finally start to step up. I hope so.

      Remember, it took around 30 years for the main-stream media to admit JFK had affairs….So we’ll see….Again, once the cash cow is gone, then the gloves will come off..
