Marion Jones Gets Six Months

January 13, 2008

My word, I know rappers and entertainers are breathing easy these days. Forget the Hip-Hop cops, athletes are catching complete L’s over this Balco steroids situation. Marion Jones, former national treasure just got 6 months in the can for lying to Federal Authorities.

Honestly, that’s messed up.  The judge went on ahead and gave her the maximum sentence although she has two kids, with one still nursing.  Judge Kenneth Karas said that steroid use “affects the integrity of athletic competition”.  I’m sure federal judges have sound logic, but that isn’t really what we’re talking about here.  She wasn’t going away for steroids, she was being sentenced for lying about taking steroids to federal officials.  Here’s how it works.  If you get caught using steroids in athletic competition, you hand over whatever you won, and get suspended.

Ben Johnson whoops the field by three strides…gets caught and gives back the gold medal.  Football players lose four games without pay.  Baseball players catch a lengthy suspension.  You don’t go to jail for it.

Man, this federal gubment ain’t playing with these Balco folks.  The crazy thing is this entire fervor is over Barry Bonds.  If it weren’t for the big man breaking every meaningful hitting record in “America’s Game” there wouldn’t be congressional hearings, books on the “Game of Shadows”, federal fact finding commissions, no one would give a damn.  So when Marion is sitting in prison thinking about what went wrong, she has Barry to thank.  Who else was on that Balco list?  “Evan(der) (Holy)Fields” better watch his ass.  You know crazy ass Bill Romanowski was all clear and creamed up.

Damn from the look of it, his wife may have been on it too.

Mike Vick went down for lying too.  All it does is piss the Fed off.
Roger, are you paying attention?  I know your current plan is to go hard on these charges.  You still haven’t come out and called McNamee a full on liar in all of this.  You might just want to fess up come next week or run the risk of catching 6 months your damn self.  It ain’t worth it Roger.  We know ya did it, just admit it.  Tuck it on in, join Pete Rose and Mark Mcgwire on the “ain’t neva, eva, evaaaaaaa getting in the hall of fame” club, and fade into the background.

This is the evidence that they are using to sack Barry.  A few side by side picture comparisons coupled with the fact that you got back 5 mph on your fast ball when you hit 38.  I will say this, the way black people are going down in the courts lately, Roger actually gives Barry a little buffer.  If they take Barry down hard, they’ve gotta give Clemens the same.  You just can’t picture Roger Clemens in jail can you?  Going from pinstripes to prison stripes is not gonna be hot.

And he’s an asshole.

HGH is a hell of a Drug…

How’s that for an asterisk? So all that fake, Barry Bonds outrage can stop anytime now. These media types are so hilarious. They provided the public with all this information about Barry being a jerk, something we would have no way of knowing otherwise. Then they crucified him for bring that jerk under the pretext of ‘Roids and the All-time home run record. THEN they sat back and did exactly what they did during the McGwire-Sosa home run race, turned a blind eye to what was obviously the exact same “activity” and juiced infused accomplishments of “their guys” like Clemens and Pettite! Right, pitchers all of a sudden get BETTER with age, that makes perfect sense. No, it wasn’t that they didn’t know, THEY DIDN’T CARE! It’s the classic double standard cloaked in their typical transparent, self-righteous bullshit.

Just because you like a guy, doesn’t make it ok for him to juice up and if it does (and clearly it does in the minds of the media) then the least you can do is have the decency to treat Barry B the same way. Instead, these guys isolated the steroids issue to Bonds alone. Disgraceful.

Free Barry Bonds! He’s just a product of the times, just like all your “good guys” who give you the grab ass interviews you desire.

Believe me, I do too, only, I don’t find you funny at all either. Hypocrites.

MLB’s farce: The Mitchell Report

December 12, 2007

Look, this damn Mitchell report on Steroids use in Major League Baseball is a joke.

mlb_mitchellreport_illustration1_412.jpg

MLB is trying to sell the public a false bill of goods. Early reports have the Mitchell report “exposing” 60-80 former and current players, a few trainers and a manager or two. So what? When Baseball initially did their exploratory investigation back in 2003, the whole idea of having a steroids disciplinary policy was premised on whether over 5% of the current players tested positive for the Juice during the 2002 season. If the percentage of players who tested positive was below the 5% threshold, then they’d go along with this, don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t think policy. If they tested above the 5%, they’d go into phase two of their toothless ambition to rid performance enhancers from the game.

Guess what, and I know this is a shocker, the testing revealed that these dudes were tweaking off of The Juice.

no-way-jose.jpg

MLB said that 5-7% of the random test results came back positive for ‘Roids. Now, they did 1,438 tests that year and each player was tested no more than once. I aint no genius or anythang, but by my calculations eerrr calculator that would make roughly 100 players in that year alone! But yet this Mitchell is coming back with 60 t0 80 names over a 30 year period?

Hell, just go to the test results from the 2003 and three study and publish them. I know, I know, they were anonymous… Sure they were. And when a doctor examines a hot babe with her shirt off, he’s not looking at those titties either. And when a gay dude sees an attractive straight man at the gym, he’s not having wild imaginations and shit either… Oh and when those female reporters are in the professional team locker rooms, “just doing their jobs” they aren’t looking at the athlete’s junk, either. None of that. Right, tell me anything. If I wanted a dog and pony show, I would have gone to WNBA finals last year.

Who won that thing by the way? The Shock? The Sparks? Whatever, they’re all the same.

What a freaking joke this all is… This is more of a joke than W’s “investigations” of the CIA leak scandal, 9/11 and “what went wrong” with the Hurricane Katrina Relief. I’m not naive, I understand that nobody wants to thoroughly investigate themselves, but don’t treat my like I’m a complete idiot. Again, lie to me. I know, I know, we’re gonna see names of players we know in that report tomorrow. Let me guess… It’ll be “Here’s another hit” Barry Bonds, Rafael Palmeroid, Big Mac, Jose Canseco, Jason “On dat Juice” Giambi, that slug Jason Grimsley from the D-backs, Sammy “I’m not a cheater I just cork a lot” Sosa and a few Latino players nobody has ever heard of.

Let me tell you when you’ll know for sure that it’s a complete joke and lie; when you don’t see Roger “Super Roid Rage” Clemens’ name up on the list.

clemens_roid_rage.jpg

I mean, does anybody with an ounce of brain tissue in their head doubt that the guy was on the juice late in his career? Oh I know, you just get better at pitching with age. Oh and he didn’t exhibit any of the symptoms of steroids either, yeah right. Homey looked like that big ole Gossamer monster Bugs Bunny used to tussle with on the mound.

He acted like it too. He threw a bat at Mike Piazza during a damn game and then later claimed he thought it was the ball.

10-24clemenscolorsub.jpg

Because those things are so similar. Finally, how many times has this asshole thrown at dudes to “get them off the plate”? Right, it’s either that or he was tweaking on a speed, roids, yellow ones, purple stuff, Sunny D, HGH and ribs combo plate that’s had him looking to get a piece of a cat every time he took the bump. But the media likes Roger, so it’s all good. Just like they liked Big Mac, so that was all good. Total bullshit, all of it.

Rant over.
