Ohio University basketball fans remember their star player DJ Cooper.  He never made it to the NBA, but he has found a place in the European leagues.  That is, until now.  Mr. Cooper just got a nasty two-year suspension for failing a drug test.  The test revealed that he was pregnant!  It was not performance enhancing drugs or recreational drugs that brought him down, it was substituting his girl friend’s specimen in an apparent attempt to avoid something else that got him.  It’s a first.  His FIBA suspension was actually for fraud, but it’s the same thing, right?  Cooper’s friend didn’t know she was pregnant at the time, so in spite of being out of work, the good news for DJ is; you’re goin’ be a daddy.  Congrats.
