Steroids in baseball

In perusing ESPN and, the breathless coverage over steroids in baseball draws out one distinct thought in me: Who gives a flying F***?" As comedian Doug Stanhope says, "You paid to watch balls fly around, who gives a damn what makes them go." Congress still hasn't held any hearings on the Justice Department attorney purge, you might remember the folks who wouldn't indict political enemies (Democrats) on dubious grounds. Congress also hasn't found the time to look into war profiteering in Iraq, yet they are concerned about overpaid jocks who stuck needles in their asses five years ago. Are you kidding me? Above all else, the whole topic is boring. Move on, I think Britney just got sprung from hanging out with McMurphy and Nurse Ratched. There's a story.

I'm tired of looking up Britney's crotch; actually or figuratively. What's important is who she supports for President. Lord, what have we become?

When the cloud covers so many pitchers and batters, I think you're wasting your time making lists. Maybe there's a way to check for amphetamines going back to the fifties.

Hey, if Popeye can eat spinich and 'fight to the finish' then I say Barry frickin' Bonds can shoot up a little cow serum and smack the ball if he wants to.

If we don't clean up the act and show kids there are unfavorable consequences how can we expect anything better out of our own?

Hmmm sounds like CNMI politics..

Caught a story from the NYT yesterday on the run up to the olympics in Peking, they tested a largeish chicken breast from a store and it was so pumped up, an athlete would have tested positive had they eaten it. Great, I was wondering why the leg quarters were so huge in these parts. They only send the best to Mongolia. Glad the rocket wasn't playing in beantown when the bust went down, We're still living down bad press from the Yawkey era. Check those breasts and thighs gentleman.
