Tales from the Steroid Bunker


The Power and the Gory Bronx Banter“Once I was on Hempstead Turnpike, on my way to the gym, when some guy in a pickup gave me the finger.
That’s it, lights out. I chased him doing ninety in my new Corvette, and did a three-sixty in heavy traffic right in front of him. I jumped out, ripped the door off his truck, and caved in his face with one punch. The other guy in the cab, who had done nothing to me, jumps out and starts running down the divider to get away from me. I chased him on foot and was pounding the shit out of him on the side of the road when the cops pulled up in two cruisers. ‘Michalik, get outta here, ya crazy fuck,’ they go, ‘this is the last goddamn time we’re lettin’ you slide.’” .... The bad news, said the surgeon after a battery of X-rays, was that Michalik would never walk again. The good news was that with a couple of operations, the pain could be substantially mitigated. Michalik told him to get the fuck out of his room. For months he lay in traction, refusing medication, and with his free arm went on injecting himself with testosterone, which had with him in a black bag at the time of the accident, and which the hospital had so thoughtfully put on his bedside table.

Dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound in 2012.
I cannot begin to imagine the self loathing he had for himself, let alone the pain he suffered.

This is an eye opening account of a profession of which I had no knowledge. What a hideous endeavor.
