These apparently aren't performance enhancers...

Bronson Arroyo told the USA Today that he uses several over-the-counter supplements not on major league baseball's approved list. Arroyo, who last month admitted to using androstenedione and amphetamines back in the early 2000s, is at it again. This story should get the attention of baseball executives. "I have a lot of guys in (the locker room) who think I'm out of (my) mind because I'm taking a lot of things not on the (MLB-approved) list," Arroyo said. "I take 10 to 12 different things a day, and on the days I pitch, there's four more things. There's a caffeine drink I take from a company that (former teammate) Curt Schilling introduced me to in '05. I take some Korean ginseng and a few other proteins out there that are not certified. But I haven't failed any tests, so I figured I'm good."

Hey Bronson, have you considered Garlique? It is was has made Larry King ageless. I mean, the man is 700 years old and has had 27 wives. Also, it's all natural!

Success Is a Choice: Ten Steps to Overachieving in Business and Life by Rick Pitino

So the extortionist is named Sypher? How fitting...

Report: Pitino tells cops he paid for abortion
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino told police he had sex with a woman accused of trying to extort him of $10 million and later paid for her abortion, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
The Courier-Journal of Louisville published on its Web site that Pitino told police he had been drinking in a Louisville restaurant and had consensual sex with Karen Sypher in August 2003. The police report said the 56-year-old coach denied Sypher's allegations that he raped her after the restaurant closed and another time somewhere else.
Sypher reported the rape allegations to police last month, but a Kentucky prosecutor said the complaint wouldn't be prosecuted because it lacked supporting evidence. Sypher, 49, has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of lying to the FBI and trying to extort money from Pitino, who is married....



Santorum For Prez 2012
Huzzah, Rick Santorum! The former Pennsylvania senator, dog-sex fetishist, Nostradamus of Terror, and reluctant John McCain supporter seems to be plotting a presidential run for 2012, which would be awesome … for America.
be in Iowa in early October, and the only reason any non-resident would be in such a place at the onset of a six-month winter is to persuade the party wingnutry that they’re conservative enough to win the Iowa Straw Poll, which is a type of informal lottery for deranged religious nuts.
Remember how Mike Huckabee won Iowa the last time, and now he’s the president? Exactly.
Anyway, Santorum. Nice to see him back on the political stage after a several-year hiatus following his 2006 senatorial rout. Rumor has it he spent his time off having illegal gay man-on-dog sex, constantly.

Did Kill Kenny rob a bank? A very large bank, with say at least $60 million in it?

White Sox claimed outfielder Alex Rios off waivers from the Blue Jays.
Rios, 28, is expected to join the White Sox Tuesday in Seattle. He'll bring a .264/.317/.427 batting line, 14 home runs, 62 RBI and a long-term contract worth over $60 million. The outfielder will have to battle for playing time in Chicago this season. But if the club lets impending free agent Jermaine Dye walk this winter, Rios could be the everyday right fielder in 2010.

has the unconfirmed scoop this morning that erstwhile Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti—who declared he needed to get out of the biz because newspapers were dying—will start at the Chicago Tribune on September 1. In case you were wondering, since he left the Sun-Times, Mariotti has been playing over at FanHouse and hollering to no end. Literally, there is no end in sight, and no end could possibly justify the means.
So now he might be coming to the Trib, which for the first time would put me on his side. By which I mean: Die newspapers, die.
