Well, Congress is now interested in another celebrity --- Sylvester Stallone. That's right. An icon of the silver screen has now captured the ire of some in government...
Clemens wasn't mentioned by name even once during the two-hour hearing, but two members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, as well as one of the witnesses, were critical of actor Sylvester Stallone of "Rocky" fame. Stallone recently said he used human growth hormone to get buff for his new "Rambo" movie, and defended its use by saying: "Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life."And you wondered how a 61-year old man could be in such immaculate shape. Here he is flexing his muscles in a trailer for his new movie, "Rambo".
"You look at Sylvester Stallone and say 'That's a different body for a 61-year-old man,"' said Dr. Alan Rogol, a professor of clinical pediatrics at both the University of Virginia and Indiana University. "He may very well have been taking human growth hormone. None of us in this room know what else he was taking. And I think it's the 'what else' -- meaning the anabolic steroids -- that made him what he is."
Again, does the government have anything better to do?
