On a Stupider Note

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, host of "Countdown" is more than slightly hipped on the issue of steroids in baseball, so he was all over the Grimsley story. And people who're into the steroids issue say the darndest things.

Olbermann and New York Daily News reporter T.J. Quinn both noted that as of now, there is no reliable test for artificial Human Growth Hormone, one of the performance enhancing drugs Barry Bonds has been accused of using.

Quinn's solution, presented with a completely straight face, was that baseball should hold onto the player specimen samples it currently uses to test for steroids and amphetimines until science can come up with a breakthrough test for HGH, then conduct post-dated testing.

What a legacy for the commissioner! Somewhere on the outskirts of Cooperstown, N.Y. would rise an historical medical building, the Bud Selig Memorial MLB Urine Repository.
