Chicks dig the long ball

Bryan BerardColumbus Blue Jackets defenseman Bryan Berard will be sporting the red, white & blue for his NHL team, but he won’t be doing it for his native country. The former US Olympian has been given a two-year ban from international play after allegedly testing positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone.

Berard is blaming the positive results to a supplement he took while training during the off-season, as reported by tsn.ca. Berard wasn’t selected to represent Team USA in Turin, but the findings could have an impact on him and his current day job. The NHL’s new random drug testing program kicked into gear last Sunday, so Berard could face penalties if he is tested and comes up positive. Berard reportedly voluntarily took a drug test for the NHL in December, with the results being negative.

Berard raised suspicions when he hit a towering 500-foot home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers last week. Uh, scratch that last sentence. Wrong athlete…
