    Wait a minute. I thought he just used flaxseed oil.

    So are they going to put a ‘*’ by his name in the record books, or just drop him altogether? And is the commish going to bar him from the hall of fame? I’m not a big baseball fan, but I think this sort of thing is more damaging to ‘the sport’ than Pete Rose’s gambling…

    Mmmmm mmmmm I love those flaxseed-fried taters!

    There is no doubt that the use of steroids and recreational drug use has run rampant in both basemall and pro football.

    The money is to good and to plentiful for there not to be.

    I don’t care for either so called sport that sets such low ethical standards for the entire nation.

  5. ICallMasICM says:

    Since when does baseball set the ethical standards for the nation?

  6. Herb says:

    Hey ICall:

    It’s called sports, Don’t you ever read the business section?

    Every school in the country participates in it and the kids set these drug users up as idols.

    ‘Itâ??s called sports, Donâ??t you ever read the business section?’

    If I wanna read about sports I read the Sports section. Maybe it’s just me.

    Don’t get me wrong I really like sports.Again maybe it’s just me but I certainly don’t want my kids getting their ethics from pro athletes. That’s why they go to Sunday school.
