Cool Cash's Cannabis Confession

http://www.pr-inside.com/rss/cashs-c...on-r163404.htm

Quote:
Australian tennis player PAT CASH has let slip about his past drug use - after he confessed to baking marijuana cookies in his sporting heyday during a U.K. radio interview.

The sporting ace - who has previously admitted to smoking cannabis on his way to winning the 1987 Wimbledon tennis championships - made the contentious revelation during a live interview with fellow tennis star Michael Stich, while they were discussing fellow tennis stars' hobbies on BBC Radio Five Live.

Cash said: "The only think I used to bake was a bit of hash cookies in the old days." But bosses at the station are not impressed and have since warned the star to be more cautious on air.

A spokeswoman for Radio Five Live says, "Pat has been asked to be more careful on air."

This is where Lendl got it all wrong. The way to play successfully on grass is to smoke it

On a somewhat related note, Wimbledon apparently fired their hawkeye operator after he was caught trying to bring marihuana into the complex.

WTF? Canas and Puerta are cheats, how can you compare the two? These guys have taken drugs to have an adavntage other other opponents? I think you must of been smoking some Cash's green if you think you can compare the two.

Re: Cash's Cannabis Confession

If anything, Cash's smoking weed would have had an adverse effect.

I would think, that cannabis is more likely to inhibit match play rather than enhance it.

Agassi could wake up out of a coma and still hit the ball flush all day long.

The only player that was proably more talented than Andre is Roger. He wasted so many opportunties early in his career, but you got to like him b/c of that.
