Still on a sports fix after seeing yesterday's swingin' ladies? The good-ol'-American, win-at-all-costs-even-if-it-means-injecting-toxic-garbage-into-your-veins competitive spirit is given a major shakedown in a new book, co-written by the Houston Chronicle's John McCloskey. In When Winning Costs Too Much: Steroids, Supplements and Scandal in Today's Sports World, McCloskey and co-writer Julian Bailes spare no anecdotal or pharmacological detail in illustrating how the once-proud world of professional sports is threatening to degenerate into a narcotic-stained sinkhole. McCloskey will discuss and sign the book at 7:30 p.m. Borders, 3025 Kirby. For information, call 713-524-0200 or visit www.bordersstores.com. Free.
