Steeler Blood-Doping? #DYSP

Sports by Brooks links to a New York Times article:

Two of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ biggest stars, Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu, used their own blood in an innovative injury treatment before winning the Super Bowl. At least one major league pitcher, about 20 professional soccer players and perhaps hundreds of recreational athletes have also undergone the procedure, commonly called platelet-rich plasma therapy.

I guess it's your own blood, not a foreign substance that your cousin gave you, but it's still a little slimy.
