Sports: Dig into the past, and all you get is dirty...

The Mitchell report came out recently, and already the accusations and denials have started flying. Now, I'm not the biggest baseball fan, so I can't really comment on how important or unimportant this sort of saga is to the future of the sport, but I do know that other sports unquestionably have athletes doping, injecting, and smearing stuff to enhance their performance.

Whether it's "the clear," "the cream," fresh red blood cells, human growth hormone, or what have you, it seems there's no end to the list of ways to get faster and stronger. It's sort of a perverse example of capitalism at work - when you have hundreds of millions of dollars up for grabs, some people will do nearly anything...But hey, why limit yourself to homo sapiens?
