In the “things that make you go hmmm” category – Anybody else think that there may be some connection as to why Joey Porter was cut and Dr. Hgh (aka Dr. Richard Rydze or “Dick Rides” as those who are intimately close with the good doctor knows him by :p)
Anyways, as a fervent baseball fan and one who is grossly sickened by the media/congress’/hypocritical football fans portrayal of baseball as the “evil roid empire”-it simply amazes me that a football fan would even have the gall to open their mouth when it comes to performance enhancing drugs and sports. Football has ALWAYS resided on the “cutting edge” of the world of performance enhancing drugs and more so the “avoidance” issue. Where do you think MLB players learned about steroids and human growth hormone? Who do you think trained baseball players on the methods of avoiding being caught? Ring..ring…and the answer is……FOOTBALL PLAYERS. That’s right….the same sport where a natural thing like a woman’s breast (Janet Jackson) caused absolute furor in football doting parents nationwide with exclamations of their (4 year old sons and daughters bearing witness to Janet’s naked boob – even though most 4 year olds are probably less removed from such a view as many adults that I know ). How dare Janet Jackson and Jason Timberlake and their dreaded “wardrobe malfunction” damage the psyche of 4 year olds around the nation and interrupting their view of a full hour of personal bodily violence. Luckily, the breast incident occurred during halftime and was preceded by 30 minutes of almost non-stop violence and would be followed by another 30 minutes of REAL bodily harm. Hopefully most of the 4 year olds were pre-occupied during halftime with punching, tackling and hitting each other to really notice.
Ok, that mini-rant has run its course, now back to our topic.
Btw, a quick funny before we become serious again….don’t you love the “Probe touches Steelers doctor headline” – I can’t even make this stuff up
My synopsis is that the Steelers conducted an immediate “internal investigation” after they learned about Dr. Dick and his little $200K Visa bill and learned that Joey Porter was amongst Dr. HGH’s top clients (I believe that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tipped off the Rooneys that they were about to run this story)…In the words of every football fan out there who has accused Barry Bonds of using performance enhancers, “Just look at him, you can tell”…well guess what, footballies, I would recommend that you take a better “look” at the Joey Porter’s of the NFL and tell me how “natural” you think those folks are! :p
