Notorious H.G.H.

From comes a report that an intercepted shipment of Human Growth Hormone, better known as HGH, was meant for a "well-known" Massachusetts athlete/entertainer who stands 6-foot-5 and tips the scales at 276 pounds. The illegal drug shipment came from Specialty, a St. Louis based company which admitted to distributing HGH, agreed to pay a $10.5 million fine and cooperate with authorities.
No one from Specialty is expected to be charged as long as they cooperate with prosecutors. The admission, however, figures to pique the interest of officials in the NFL and Major League Baseball, who have been trying to establish if any of their athletes have been involved in this case, or another in Albany, which has resulted in 22 indictments.
David Ortiz is nicknamed "Big Papi" for a reason. He's big, he's fat and he's big. I don't know if he's 276 pounds kinda big, but I wouldn't put it past him. He is listed as 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds on several websites, but he is definitely over 230. I'd guess in the 260 range, but it's unknown how many Big Macs Big Sloppi put away during yesterday's down-time.

I'm not making any conclusions here, because the "Massachusetts athlete" could just as easily be New England Patriot, Kyle Brady. However, if that were the case, investigators would have to be pretty flexible with the phrase "well-known" as the only thing well-known about Brady is that he was one of many 1st round draft busts at the expense of the New York Jets.

Brady is listed at 6-foot-6 and 280 pounds while Mike Vrabel is listed at 6-foot-4 and 261 pounds. Coming in at 270 pounds but only standing 6-foot-2, it could be Adalius Thomas in stilettos, but I'll let you be the judge.

With a little promotion, this could become a pretty exciting game. Just call it "Find The User" and time contestants as they peer through the Patriots roster. Remember rule #1 everybody, you can't use the same player twice. There goes Rodney Harrison. Shoot, wonder if Rick Ankiel has any buddies on the Celtics...
