UFC-HD2Could be you in the Milwaukee Octagon® on August 31st!

To be the “rage in the cage” and break into the UFC, you’ll need to network with industry insiders, gain a solid knowledge of backstage politics, hope for a little luck, have thick skin and prove that your fighting skills are the best in the world.

Or you could just enter the Harley-Davidson contest for an epic UFC throwdown to celebrate the 110th anniversary.  It looks like they’ve borrowed a lot of ideas from All Japan Pro Wrestling and flushed out a script with WWE “jobbers” to create an “anything can happen” entertainment show called the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown event.  Clearly no sponsor of combat sports has done more by supporting a punch, a grab or a shin kick to the skull than Harley-Davidson.  You’ll want to thank Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson Marketing Director.

Maybe you’re an active proponent in the effort to keep Wrestling in the Olympics?  Or maybe you just like refreshments and the ringgirls?!  Whatever the case may be, you can enter the contest for a chance to win a Street Bob motorcycle and in addition the winner gets a VIP pass to the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown event at UFC 164 at the Bradley Center on August 31st.  If you win you’ll also receive the highly valued fight training time with Cain Velasquez.

When you enter the site don’t forget to create your own gnarly custom designed 110th anniversary logo.  Because it will be painted in the Octagon for all the blood “sport” fans to see if you are worthy.

Since the first day when Federal Agents raided the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative (BALCO) back in September 2003, the ‘steroids scandal’ has engulfed some of the biggest names in sports and brought increased scrutiny to the illegitimate nature of pharmacy law.  This link provides more information on the MLB debacle.

Now we’re learning from Times Union about a connection with James M. D’Amico, a dentist from Cape Coral, FL., who had a revoked dental license while prescribing “nutritional supplements” a.k.a. steroids and human growth hormones.  This case, prosecuted in South Florida has ties to a steroids-distribution investigation launched four years ago in Albany and recently brought to light one of Mr. D’Amico’s high-profile clientele as none other than Paul Teutul Sr. of Orange County Chopper (OCC) and ‘American Chopper’  fame.  According to Mr. D’Amico’s seized records, Paul Teutul Sr. received 73 prescriptions at a cost of over $51,000 from August 2, 2002 to October 3, 2006.

Now I’m not a dentist, but clearly there must be a lot of legitimate uses for steroids in a dental practice for 73 prescriptions?!

Maybe Paul Sr., was overwhelmed in the fiercely competitive custom motorcycle business and realized it’s not enough to be smart and charismatic — you need to have bigger, stronger and faster moving biceps than all the other also ran’s — and as a result looked to nutritional supplements to build the one-of-a-kind choppers in record breaking time.

According to the Albany NY based Times Union web site article, the D’Amicos prescriptions to Teutul were processed by Orlando’s Signature Compounding Pharmacy, whose operators remain under felony indictment in Albany.  Robert G. Calson, a Sarasota, FL., physician who pleaded guilty in Albany three years ago to insurance fraud for his role in that case, also prescribed supplement drugs to Tuetul through Signature.

In connecting the dots it wouldn’t be a big leap to assume that some of that ‘American Chopper’ yelling for prime time was more related to “roid rage” and it’s possible that this doping scandal is truly the end of the road for the Teutul dynasty.  Translated: The threebie that isn’t.
