In the 90's, whenever one wanted to explain why more home runs were being hit in baseball, the scapegoat became Haiti. Baseballs used by MLB were manufactured in Haiti. I remember all these theories about how baseballs were being wound tighter by the impoverished Haitian workers, creating a "rabbit ball" which "jumped" off the bat. Turns out it was a bunch of testicle-shrunken-roid-ragers reponsible for the inflated numbers. So, Haiti, on behalf of the United States and Canada, we're sorry.
Oh, I should state that I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm sure there's science backing up the rabbit ball theory, it just seems like we always have to scapegoat some impoverished non-white group of people.
Also, I don't really give a shit about steroids. I mean, I do, but I don't. I'm not thrilled about it, but it's been obvious for a while, so I wish people would quit faking their outrage about it. Yes, I will keep watching baseball, keep going to games, keep rooting for the Padres. It's friggin entertainment. I'll save my outrage for something more important.
