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.
