Steroids. When does it end?

By jcfortun Published: February 18, 2009

Will it ever stop, yo I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
-- Vanilla Ice, Ice, Ice baby; Circa 1990

Yes, Ice. It stopped very quickly. Your career that is. I am not sure if it was the blatant rip off of Queen's "Under Pressure" or the rumors of rap mogul and purported gangster Suge Knight dangling you off a balcony by your ankles, but your career lasted about as long as MC Hammer's Poofy pants.

The steroids issue in baseball, however, has shown to have a much longer shelf life.

AROD's press conference yesterday...

Along with today's ABJ print story about the Indians thoughts on steroids ...

and Pete Abraham asking who AROD's cousin is...

and ESPN's Buster Olney stating that he hopes AROD is telling the truth,

has me wondering if the steroid story will ever stop. It seems like it is getting closer to the end, but all we need is another new "cream and clear" and another big name dropped to fire up the stoves once again.

the baseball and steroids debate has been going on for years now. Does anyone even remember when BALCO was the hot-button name? That was back in 2003.

What do you guys think about the steroid issue now?

Is AROD the last giant to fall?

Is there another superstar hidden on the remaining 103 names?

Does AROD have a better chance with Hall of Fame voters because he is in the middle of his career as opposed to Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, who were at the end?

Does anyone even care anymore?

Should I waste blog space talking about it?
