What are "love handles"?
Posted by Gordon Smith

Peter Gammons has an interesting article on steroid usage in baseball, and he comments on rumors about Nomar Garciaparra:

If a player is thrown into the public stocks by hypothetical or deductive guesswork, he is damaged, with little recourse. There is no better example than Nomar Garciaparra. His famous Sports Illustrated cover was quickly thrown up as 'roid proof when he got hurt in spring training 2001. Now, any Gold's Gym bodybuilder and trainer will take that picture and point to the fact that he's developed in but two places and actually has love handles, a surefire sign that he is not a juicer.

Ok, you be the judge. Here is the photo. Now, I will admit that he might be a little soft in the center, but love handles? I should be so out of shape!

If that is what "love handles" looks like, I don't even want to talk about what I have going on!

OUCH!
