Baseball scandal

I know I’m supposed to be scandalized by the latest revelations, assuming they’re true (right now, they are unsubstantiated allegations). And yet, I can’t help feel that there’s a kind of arbitrary logic at work here. Some kinds of drugs are okay, others are not. Last I checked, nobody is going after University of Florida football team records because they had exclusive access to a certain hydrating sports beverage. Yes, performance enhancing drugs are bad for you and cheating. But so are so many other things players do. And if we start putting asterisks next to records, let’s remember that Babe Ruth was playing in a league that kept out black players.

Okay, now I must go enter grades and watch football.
