Taking The Deer By The Horns

I give up.

I officially give up on professional sports.

Why should I bother?

Major League Baseball has issued a Stern Warning to players.  It seems players are snorting deer antler spray.  Yeah.  Deer antler spray.  It seems that the velvet of immature deer antlers contains IGF-1, or insulin-like growth factor.  Now, IGF-1 is banned by doping agencies and baseball, the problem is catching anyone.  Unlike steroids, IGF-1 can't be detected by urine tests.  Players have been using it as an alternative to steroids.  MLB didn't issue the warning because IGF-1 is against the rules, but because other chemicals in deer antler spray can lead to a false positive for other drugs in drug tests.

I honestly don't see why I should bother caring anymore.

Glad to have this information because the high from bath salts just isn't doing it for me anymore.

I'm not sure you should have posted that to a public blog. You might give them ideas. ;-)
