Packing Heat For The Gun Show

It seems everybody is using steroids.  There's the obvious ones, baseball players and football players.  Bicyclists.  Golf players.  Rappers.  Actors.  The question isn't where do you draw the line, but is there a line to be drawn?

Apparently, yes there is.

Come and honor a hero among us.  Her name is Anna Watson.  She's a cheerleader at the University Of Georgia who credits her Christian faith with bringing balance to her life.  I take a lot of cheap jokes at cheerleaders, but I won't about her.  Here's why....



After ten months of hitting the college's bench press, Watson added four inches to her arms.  She bench presses 155 pounds, squats 255 pounds, and dead lifts 230 pounds.  Out of thirty pairs of jeans she brought with her to college, only two of them fit.



She was recently offered a huge contract to become fitness model.  $75,000 and plenty of offers.  She would never have to look for work.

She turned it down.

Why?

The agency wanted Watson to gain fifty pounds of muscle by taking Anavar, a legal steroid.  Watson is no dummy.  Aware of the potential to wreak havoc on her body and affect her ability to have kids, she walked away.  From big money and a guaranteed future.  "I'm not going to compromise my morals and my beliefs just to take pictures. I believe that my body is a temple and a beautiful creation, so I don't want to put anything into it that can harm it."

Principles and integrity still exist.

Maybe there is still hope for this world after all.
