The Mitchell Report is out and it contends that baseball is tainted. Tainted! Who knew? Apparently, everyone: the commissioners, the player's union, the owners and the fans. Howard Stern has always had a good take on the rumors of steroid abuse in major league baseball. He thinks baseball should start a steroid league and be done with it. What a welcoming idea. That way we don't have to feel bad about all the cheating and deceit and corruption. Here's my design for the hat.
By the by, George Mitchell is the former democratic senator from Maine who chaired negotiations for the Belfast Peace Agreement in Northern Ireland in 1998. What a champion.
Fun facts: steroid abuse can cause liver tumors, jaundice, high blood pressure, shrinking of the testicles, infertility, baldness, paranoid jealousy, extreme irritability, delusions and impaired judgment stemming from feelings of invincibility.
