Why Are Steroids All The Rage?

I am about done with hearing about steroids. Seriously, I don't care. I don't care that Clemens took them, I don't care that Bonds took them, I don't care that McGwire took them, and I really don't care that Madonna's Boyfriend took them either. Memo to nerds like Buster Olney: everyone took steroids pal, story's over. It would have been interesting if you and Gammons and Kurkian broke this news 15 years ago, but breaking these stories now is like me breaking the news that Cleveland's economy is a little down at the moment...everyone knows that already. What's more, I think that Baseball writers talk about steroids in baseball because it is the most compelling story in the sport - unfortunately. Steroids in baseball sells newspapers, it makes headlines, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays beating out financial empires like the Yankees and Red Sox to win their division just don't. Shawne Merriman took steroids and he went to the Pro Bowl that year. Bonds took 'roids and he might go to jail. This whole thing is just ridiculous, and I am sick of hearing about it.

Agreed JD. Another reason and further proof that babeball WAS the Nation's pasttime. They continue to make headlines for all the WRONG reasons. I say let them all take roids if they want too. I would rather have a chance at catching a walk-off home run in my $7 upper deck seat 540 feet away, than watch a slap hitting short stop hit the game winning dribbler past the pitchers mound anyday.

Roid it up fellas. Its no acne off my back
