This has to be one of the most bizzare stories of the year. Apparently, James Gahan of St. Petersburg, FL forced his son to inject roids for three years before being caught. Prosecuters had this to say: “Mr. Gahan would take his son to storefront clinics called the Pasco Medical Center or Physicians Wellness Institute to receive anabolic steroid injections, which federal prosecutors say Gahan also received.”

But this isn’t even the best part of the story…the reason behind this fathers idiocy was the fact that he wanted his son to make an international roller skating team. The kid took steroids for three years before the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency tested the boy and found the drugs in his system. He was training to qualify for something called the “USA Roller Sports’ junior national team”, to represent the United States at an international competition in China.
