Raffy's on Roids

He's going with the "I don't know how those got there" excuse. I fully understand. I can hardly go anywhere these days without accidentally ingesting performance enhancing drugs. I found some in a my burrito today. And again in the water cooler.

I guess I'll have to add Raffy to "The Roid King."

Is anyone really surprised that, of all people, Rafael Palmeiro was taking performance enhancing drugs?

Update: Our good friend the Ace Cowboy has more, including the damning quote:

"Good morning, Mr. Chairman and members of the committee. My name is Rafael Palmeiro and I am a professional baseball player. I'll be brief in my remarks today. Let me start by telling you this: I have never used steroids. Period. I don't know how to say it any more clearly than that. Never. The reference to me in Mr. Canseco's book is absolutely false. I am against the use of steroids. I don't think athletes should use steroids and I don't think our kids should use them. That point of view is one, unfortunately, that is not shared by our former colleague, Jose Canseco. Mr. Canseco is an unashamed advocate for increased steroid use by all athletes."


Still more, from Jonathan at the L&N Line.

  • It's hard for me to believe that any professional athlete would not know what he/she injests. I played college baseball and knew EVERYTHING I took. Total Bullshit!

  • I got pulled over with BAC of 0.24 last night. I told the cop that I didn't know how the alcohol got into my system, I was just drinking ginger ale.
