This evening I stopped by the ESPN MLB page to check the headlines. I was looking to see if Ken Griffey Jr had officially signed with the Braves yet.
I noticed a humorous connection between the first headline and a prominent ad on the page.
Notice that the top headline in the upper right corner reads “A-Rod says he got ‘energy booster’ injection.” Stories about A-Rod litter the page. Among this PED bashing and righteous indignation there is a fishy ad that says “Tired of being tired?” A smiling doctor offers you FRS, which “many of the world’s best athletes” use. Hmmmmmm. I think I’ll pass.
Any kind of wonder supplement that goes by a few initials and promises to make me stronger, faster, or more energized is dubious indeed.
By the way, I titled this post before I noticed the headline on the feature article was “Convenient Truth.” It appears Al Gore is never far from our minds.
