Congressional Steroid Marketing Pitch

Just a few months after testigying in front of a Congressional panel that “I have never used steroids. Period…” Rafael Palmiero has been suspended by Major League Baseball for, well, using steroids.

“Look at how muscular my hand is….”

Palmiero insists that this all part of a big mistake. And he might be telling the truth. It would be pretty crazy for him to do ‘roids at this moment in his career.

But maybe he did steroids this time but really had never done them in the past. I’m sure he wouldn’t be the only athlete in America to watch those hearings and think, hmmm, that seems like it could be worth a try (aside from boosting sales of Jose’s book, I’m not sure the hearings accomplished much else).

Concentration is important!
