steroids

This morning that another baseball player has confessed to taking performance enhancing drugs.

Who cares.

Taking these things helps you to grow big and strong. It also helps to shrink your testicles. Do they help your brain to work faster, better? No.

Steroids help to make you more unstable. Have you ever tried to hit a baseball coming at you 90mph? 100mph? You can't just close your eyes and whack it. It takes a high degree of skill and concentration to hit the ball.

Ok, if you're juiced and you hit the ball, it should go further. That's physics and science.

In the end, it all comes down to your technique. Steroids wont affect that, so who cares. Maybe the old greats were juiced too. Just because they are dead doesn't mean we can't doubt them. If science today could test the heroes of yester-year, do you think maybe we'd find a few skeletons?

Hard to believe we couldn't.
