I’m still on vacation, but I needed to post this RIGHT. NOW.
Sheffield also denied using steroids, despite grand jury testimony that he used ‘roid cream on his legs and “The Clear” under his tongue.
“In a million years, I don’t care what anybody says, steroids is something you shoot in your butt,” he said. “I do know that. The bottom line is steroids is something you stick in your butt, period.”

I’m not even going to get into the fact that he said Derek Jeter isn’t “all the way black,” like that’s some kind of magical talisman against racism. Not EVEN. I’m saving that for a nonvacation proper post. And heck, the entire interview isn’t even going to be aired until Tuesday. But I HAD to get this out there right away.
1. The word “steroids” is plural, Sheff. The only reason you would say “is” after it would be if you had used it in the context I just did.
2. YOU ARE WRONG. WRONG WRONG WRONG. COMPLETELY DEAD WRONG. CAPTAIN OF STATEMENTS WHICH ARE PROVEABLY WRONG. Look, I’ll even cite it.
Some anabolic steroids are taken orally, others are injected intramuscularly, and still others are provided in gels or creams that are rubbed on the skin.

I am flailing over here. I am on vacation. I am not in the mindset for replying to this latest bout of insanity. I don’t even need to… there is NOTHING I could say that tops what Sheffield himself has already said.
“The bottom line is steroids is something you stick in your butt, period.”
You guys, if you don’t stick it in your butt, it doesn’t count.
Man, if I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard THAT used as rationalization by guys denying their own homosexual tendencies…
The jokes are too easy. This one just has to stand on its own.
