Say It Ain't So, Raffy

One thing I've seen no one mention so far about the Rafeal Palmeiro scandal- remember when Raffy first was hired as a pitchman for Viagra, and he tried to claim that he didn't actually use the anti-impotence pill, before later backing off? So we know he has a history of lying about his use of controversial drugs.

I just heard Jay Mariotti, on PTI, refer to Stanozolol as "The S-Drug." Ugh. Just showing how much better a journalist Wilbon is, he went on to pronounce Stanizolol correctly.

They've been saying Stanozolol has a "brand name," Winstrol. How can an illegal drug have a brand name?

And perhaps the worst development of all is that it'll give a Congress yet another chance to grandstand even more. But I wouldn't worry too much if I were Raf- were he to be indicted for perjury, I'm sure he'd subsequently be pardoned by his good buddy, the president.

i don't think Stanozolol is illegal per se, just a Schedule 3 controlled substance, meaning it can only be dispensed by prescription. Therefore, if he got it, say, from being "injected" in a men's room stall, that would be illegal. Not to mention wrong.
