Do you smell that? It smells like something is burning…. It’s Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun’s pants! They’re on fire because he’s a big liar. (This joke works much better when you look at this story’s featured image.) After denying the use of performance-enhancing drugs and blaming a positive test on specimen collector Dino Laurenzi, Jr., Braun has proven to be a liar and a cheater. According to ESPN, Major League Baseball has suspended Braun for the rest of the year without pay for a violation of the sport’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
We’ve discussed PEDs in sports back in February and PED abuse in baseball last month. How do you feel about Ryan Braun’s suspension? Are you surprised? Is the punishment too harsh, too lenient, or just right? Most importantly, any chance that scumbag Alex Rodriguez gets suspended soon (like Braun, A-Rod was a Biogenesis client) or maybe deported to Uranus? Kindly share your performance-enhanced feelings in the comments section!
