Enough About Me... How About You? What Do You Think Of Me?

And the other side of baseball...

The baseball piece yesterday inspired some interesting debate between Sporty Spice and myself on the Raffy Palmiero steroids debacle… the very guy who a few short months ago sat in front of the senate committee and said: “I have never used steroids. Period. I don't know how to say it any more clearly than that. Never… I am against the use of steroids” has now been accused of using the Ben Johnson steroid (which doctors characterize as “potent”). His new story goes something like this… “I am here to make it very clear that I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period… I am sure you will ask how I tested positive for a banned substance. As I look back, I don't have a specific answer to give... I have never intentionally used a banned substance, but I unfortunately wasn't careful enough.”

Blah, blah, blah, you’re an idiot. Steroids, probably a little Viagra thrown in for good measure (‘cause you know what the ‘roids do to you…)… Imagine Raffy at a news conference then…

Raffy: ...I have no idea how any of this happened... and just for the record, I only took Viagra because I was sleeping with prostitutes...
(Agent whispers in Raffy's ear)
Raffy: ...I've just been told that sleeping with prostitutes is also illegal... my bad... it's been a very confusing week. I hope no one finds out that I'm an illegal immigrant...
(Agent whispers in Raffy's ear)
Raffy: Just kidding folks... the prostitute was an illegal immigrant... got a bit mixed up there... no harm no foul... heh, heh, heh… Next thing you know I’ll have to start paying taxes…
(Agent whispers in Raffy’s ear)
Raffy: (to his Agent) Oh come on! I paid the sales tax on the steroids!!!

Very excited about tomorrow night... Go Yankees... but VERY boo hiss that I'm missing Jason Collett at the Mod Club. VERY TORN. I'm sure Greektown is making note of this and planning to bargain with me tonight... "So I'll go to the Shout Out Louds at Lee's if YOU go to Jason Collett..." Really, it would be a no brainer except that I have the corporate seats - on the third baseline for the Yankees...
