It's really, really hard", he told the Morning News, "but I'll do it. To help with the process, Beggs underwent low-level shots of testosterone. Beggs posed. "I can tell the state Legislature to change the policy, but I can't tell them to change it right now".
"Honestly, I didn't even care about the boos", Beggs contended after winning the championship previous year, according to CNN. That didn't stop me from being who I was. "It all comes down to technique and who has the most heart". "I've worked too hard for that".
