This is getting far more attention than it deserves (I am watching CNN while working), but here is the report. Expect a few days/weeks of blatant hypocrisy from sports announcers, commentators, fans, and owners, when everyone on the damned planet knew this crap has been going on forever. In fact, the same people bemoaning the ‘cheating’ are the ones who looked the other way when the home run was allegedly saving baseball in the mid t0 late 90’s. Steroid use was, at the time, deemed to be good for baseball, use was rampant and widespread, and owners, the league and players knew it, fans and announcers knew it (have any of you seen Sammy Sosa’s head?), and now we are going to have to listen to sanctimonious jerks pretend they never knew there was gambling going on. As annoying as the fans and announcers will be, the position of the owners and MLB will be even more irritating, as they ACTIVELY worked against ending steroid use. Their inaction was a clear green light to people who already would sacrifice everything for just a little more zip on their fastball and a little more power in their swing and a little more pep in their stride.
Imagine if, in ten years, the GOP and the media decide to get outraged about intelligence being finessed before the Iraq war, they launch an investigation, and then get shocked when they see what they find. That is the level of stupid this baseball steroid report is right now.
