A-Rod took Steroids?! What??!!

Why is everyone acting so surprised?

Next, they'll announce that bears poop in the woods.

BIG NEWS, FOLKS.

So, A-Rod is willing to broil his liver and play Russian roulette with his health. He's a dummy. He deserves to be publicly humiliated, but he won't be. Not for long anyway. He's made the "watered down" apology, and this will be "news" for 10 minutes, then it will all settle down. Major League "brass" will act shocked for the cameras, but truly, they don't care. Not really. As long as they're selling tickets and filling up the stands, they are MORE than willing to turn a blind eye. Major League Baseball LONG AGO quit being about a simple athletic game.... it's now about the almighty dollar... marketing, advertising, etc. All about the Benjamins.

So sad, isn't it?

The ballplayers from 100 years ago who played for the love of the game (and held down "real" jobs, since they couldn't support themselves playing baseball) are no doubt turning over in their graves....

I agree. I was not surprised. And Rodriquez isn't the only one using.

Dear HW, my friend Paul Dudley (he's a photog, & his blog is on my sidebar) just posted a pic that he took of ORCAS in Puget Sound (the body of water that we live next to). I thought you might be interested, since you were asking about it (and I answered your question in my comments).

I don't know anything about it. I am SO out of the current event/news scene lately. I am a total loser. I tried to watch the news tonight so I could speak intelligently about current events and I could only watch about 3 minutes.
I feel bad that he is going thru a divorce with those two little kids.

Hej girl, I'm back from the 'no computer wilderness', looking forward to see what you have been up to.
What do you mean it is all about the Benjamins, if you don't mind me asking?

SUSY! I'm so glad you are back.... I was wondering where you ran off to! "all about the Benjamins" is an American slang term to say "they're all about the money".... (Benjamins, of course, referring to a $100 dollar bill...)
I will drop by your blog soon!

Next A-Roid will shock the world by revealing that he slept with Madonna.

Two reasons I am becoming less of a baseball fan is money and performance enhancing substances. As far as I'm concerned, the career home run leader is still Hank Aaron, and Roger Maris still holds the single season record.

George Steinbrenner ruined the game by being the leader at throwing obscene amounts of money at these players starting back in the seventies. How in the world can someone who is worried about their factory job identify with these overpaid crybabies?
