Steroids Saga

I've always thought some of the best newspaper writing comes from sports scribes. In the case of Robert Dvorchak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and his four-part series, "Never Enough: Steroids in Sports," it's also some of the best reporting. Dvorchak traces the spread of steroid use in America starting in 1959 with a Pennsylvania weightlifter through its widespread abuse in almost every competitive sport. Dvorchak mixes medical information with compelling anecdotes. He also has the courage to address steroid use by his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers.
