    I haven't seen this story much around the sports sections. Interesting read. Respecting the rule of not posting full stories I'll give you part. But overall you should look at the piece and read. Either one group is in trouble for their painkiller problems or one guy is in trouble for making the whole thing up.

    This story would be so incredibly awesome if it were the Patriots and BB using vicodin. But it's the Saints, and I doubt it will get much coverage until they can produce some hard evidence.

    Interesting. The funny thing is I am on Vicodin right now and feel as high as a kite. I can see why some people abuse this drug. Hopefully I won't need it after today.

    I took some after a car wreck and felt pretty damn good . The bottle says that it will give you an unrealistic sense of easiness .

    I've always felt really bad (as in worse than I felt before) after taking vicodin. There's just something about it that rubs me the wrong way. I can't see getting addicted to it.

    Vicodin makes my nose itch. I'd like to see a successful head coach that abuses Xanax or Oxycotin to the point where it's visible on the sidelines. Or get drunk.

    Damn No Fun League.

    The stuff is definitely good. I was on it twice. The funny part is that the first time was a minor outpatient surgery but I was hurting and sucked them down. I think I even got 1 refill. My wife, girlfriend at the time, said I was super laid back. The second time was when I was cut open for the emrgency open heart surgery and they only allowed one bottle because they didn't want me on it too long. The tylenol didn't work as well after...even though it is a small part of Vicodin. The stuff will clog you up though if you aren't careful.

    Mix in a beer and you're really feeling no pain, although I wouldn't recommend it, it's hard on the liver and depending on your body can cause issues. The things you do when your young and dumb.
