Ben Widdicombe of the New York Daily News rehashed their comments about painkillers and steroids over the weekend, saving the best revelation, courtesy of "Zap," for last: “Half the team was lesbians at one time. But it was just women with women; there were no gay guys on that show.”

Okay, Zap, if you insist. But I'm pretty sure I saw Gladiator spandex-tenting once or twice during Breakthrough & Conquer.
