Although I am wish him well in his Olympic pursuits, you simply do not take chances with a diagnosis of cancer. This is a fast growning cancer, that can change within in a matter of weeks. Whether this is a lifetime dream or not, is immaterial. What is material is the diagnosis of cancer, plain and simple. "His Goal" is the Olympics. While I applaud him working towards "His Goal," he fails to take into account on how his decision affects those who know and love him.(And please NBC, spare us the many stories of his "brave" fight during your television coverage. I can already hear the music now..)

After all, one can still swim without balls - women do it all the time.

Seriously?! Are you the forum bully? Should people hesitate before they respond to something you wrote for fear of????
Dear Lord......that was another joke. Initially, I thought that you were faking your apparent lack of a sense of humor, but it appears that you seriously don't get it.

We really need to get you to start laughing. Rather than trying a complicated joke, we should probably just start with a small test tickle.........

Young, healthy athletes with testicular cancer = steroid use. What else could it be??

This has nothing to do with steroid use.

Testicular cancer is very common and healthy young men are exactly who normally get it.
