Yes, that's right, another chapter in the steroid scandal, but you would never believe who it is.
Yup, I took steroids.
But before you go criticizing me, let me explain.
Yesterday I went an outpatient clinic to see what was wrong with my throat since I had a persistent cough. I checked in and waited for 90 minutes until being seen, snuck in a cigarette in the meantime.
They did many tests on me including a strep swab, mono, blood work, things that never happened to me for a simple throat check.
I wound up with a diagnosis of an upper respiratory infection so they gave me antibodies and some steroids in my ass. The steroid actually was a cortisone shot, but I like calling it steroids.
That afternoon we had the first game of our softball tournament and I played third base, a base in which I am a last resort, usually I play catcher, but they needed me at the hot corner.
I surprised the hell out of everyone and me.
The first play of the day was a routine grounder that I fielded cleanly and made an off-balance throw to first for the first out of the game; that set the tone. I made many other plays though out the game except for one ball that took an odd hop.
The steroids never made an impact on my swing as I went 2-4 with two base hits, and RBI and a run scored.
The game wound up going into extra innings when we were down by two runs in the ninth.
We staged a two out rally and I was on deck when the winning hit came in. I'll get my chance.
We advance to the second round of the playoffs with a game tonight. Three wins away from a championship that was robbed from us last year. We had an undefeated season until we were upset and the first team eliminated.
Now I can officially say that I played the game juiced!
