Let’s be dramatic. I love three things in this world above all others: science, theatre, and, as you know, baseball. Fate usually forbids me of mash-ups of the three things that make me feel all warm and tingly. But sometimes it happens. Sometimes they come together, and it is beautiful.
For instance, have you seen the musical Damn Yankees? It is one of my favorites.
Have you ever studied the intricate pharmacodynamics of anabolic steroids? I have. Who knew that “Drugs and the Brain” course I took in college would be so helpful to my career as a sports writer? [But it was.] I’m not writing about anabolic steroids anymore, however. This week, my assignment was something different, something new. The latest trend in MLB is Deer Antler Spray, and you can read all about the cool nerdy sciency stuff on my latest post on Aerys.
Trust me, you’ll be the leader of the barstool conversation on that one. And you thought you wouldn’t learn anything after you got your degree! Wrong! Science is cool, especially when it applies to something cool, like health, but specifically, like baseball. So give in to peer pressure already. Read my article. Impress your friends.
