For those of you who are up-to-date on the latest steroid user news, there were some recent developments that inspired this blog. I will leave it at that and let you find out for yourself later on in the post.

Steroid-users can, at times, provide the public with some genuinely large helpings of bullsh$t. It makes for some serious comedy. The beautiful thing about this is; the guys actually believe the public is going to buy their story. Perhaps the public would even sympathize with the me, right? It’s classic. Here’s the bottom line; we all know you took steroids intentionally. We all know you do it. Spare us.

Here are 5 awesome excuses we’ve been fed from steroid-users…

(5) Rafeal Palmeiro – “The Accident Clause”

“I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period.”

Oh, that explains it! He didn’t mean to use it. He’s ok then, we have to let him off the hook. Why even say that? Who do you think actually says. “Oh, he didn’t do it on purpose. He’s cool” Come on, man.

(4) Erectile Dysfunction

The illegal substance for which Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez tested positive and was banned 50 games was prescribed to address erectile dysfunction, not “an agent customarily used for performance enhancing” a source close Ramirez said Thursday. The guy was just trying to cure ED, bro. He wasn’t taking steroids. This isn’t fair!
