This could be a very interesting baseball off-season

Professional athletes should not be rewarded because they chose to consume illegal drugs. The noose may be getting a bit tighter on these cheaters.

Quote:
Government investigators are entitled to the names and urine samples of about 100 Major League Baseball players who tested positive for illegal drug use in 2003, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

The court's ruling could bolster the government's perjury case against Barry Bonds if his name is among those who tested positive. The slugger has been the target of a perjury investigation since he testified before a grand jury that he didn't knowingly ingest illegal drugs.

Lets see the list, If Bonds is NOT on the list then I will say I am sorry for my belief that he has cheated.

You mean we're not supposed to?

Well, that'll free up a lot of closet space.

I'm just hoping that no one at the Bureau of Naval Personnel reads about this-- or the Department of Naval Nuclear Propulsion...
