Strike Three for MLB
« on: February 11, 2009, 08:27:59 PM »
Over the weekend we had Alex Rodriguez getting outed for failing a steroid test from 2003, then yesterday we had Miguel Tejada peading guilt for lying to a jury about his own steroids use. Now we have Roberto Alomar getting sued by his ex girlfriend for.... well for having AIDs.
Now, I"m not sure what her beef is specifically, and what the actual grounds for her suit are. She says she had been asking him to be tested for HIV for three years, yet consented to having sex during that same time. When he finally did consent, he was found not just to be HIV positive, but to have AIDs. However, her tests turned up negative. She's suing for emotional distress though.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

Oh, I didn't know. All I remember is he used to beat the crap out of Mary Pierce.

I wonder if the ump he spit in the face of is at least a little worried?  But that was a long time ago.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Of all the major sports, it seem like baseball is in worse shape with it's image.
