The Irony Cross

I find it faintly amusing that among the numerous major league baseball players named in yesterday’s massive steroid scandal is Yankee pitcher Andy Pettitte, the bible-thumping family values man who preaches against pre-marital sex and drug use. Pettitte is a favorite guest on many Christian talk shows.

The title of Pettitte’s 2005 book: Strike Zone: Targeting A Life Of Integrity & Purity. Apparently the strike zone is question was Pettitte’s rear end where he was getting shots of human growth hormone.
