After New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez stormed out of today’s grievance hearing in regards to his alleged steroid use/suspension. He appeared on the Mike Francesca show afterwards and expressed his disappointment in commissioner Bud Selig’s lack of presence at the hearing. Rodriguez felt that since Selig has led this witch hunt, he should be involved in the process that will potentially be shutting the door on his career.
Selig has enforced a 211-game suspension on Rodriguez for being a repeat offender of Major League Baseball’s steroid policy. At 38 years old, a suspension of this magnitude would allow Rodriguez to return to the game at 40 years old. At that age, it’s highly unlikely that he could be productive, nor is guaranteed that a team would be willing on to take on such a risk.
Here is the interview where Rodriguez voices his frustrations.

New York Yankees fans can count out any hopes that major league baseball’s bearded wonder, Brian Wilson will be landing in the Big Apple. According to Yankees beat writer, Bryan Hoch, Wilson will not entertain any offers from clubs that have facial hair rules.
After bouncing back from Tommy John surgery in 2012, Wilson spent last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers and helped anchor the back-end of a shaky bullpen. Wilson pitched 30 innings for the Dodgers last season with one save, a 5.40 ERA and 4 holds. Moderate numbers for the once dominating closer as he looks to regain his former dominance.
Wilson’s beard and unexplainable antics have managed to keep him relevant, even after he was out of the game for a nearly a whole year. Wilson knows that his beard is his golden ticket to continued endorsement opportunities, TV time and appearances on crappy blogs like this one. Wilson is playing it smart and grasping onto his money-maker, because you can’t throw baseballs 90+ mph your whole life. Expect Wilson to draw some attention from the Boston Red Sox, at least we know they’re equal facial hair opportunity employers.
Michael Jordan recently participated in a game of beer pong and was taken to school by a couple regular bros. You can’t hold it against MJ for not being the pro you expected, but you should probably expect him to be better than you at anything else in life. Pretty cool for MJ to stop in with a couple rando’s at the Ritz Carleton in Miami and have a little fun.
The increasing popularity of Gamma-O V2 Series from Gamma Labs reflects the demand for bodybuilding supplements that naturally boost testosterone levels. Commonly realized benefits include increased athletic performance and speedier muscle recovery.
The use of naturally derived testosterone boosters can also reduce muscle pain and are directly attributed to more effective workouts, among other health benefits.
As a sought after testosterone booster, the compound known as gamma oryzanol has greatly evolved from original use in the treatment of anxiety. The testosterone boosting properties of Gamma-O stem from a sophisticated process which extracts plant sterols from the simple ingredients of corn, rice, and barley.
The health benefits of gamma oryzanol include the release of mood enhancing endorphins, antioxidants to destroy free radicals and naturally elevated levels of testosterone production.
The Gamma-O V2 Series has parlayed these factors into the all-natural testosterone booster of choice among many bodybuilders and athletes of various sports.
It’s a slow sports day, why not throw a jab at the eternal, thoughtless optimist that roams the sidelines in the upstate of South Carolina. His Dabo-ism’s normally take a few minutes to digest and understand, but boy are they great material for South Carolina fans. Remember kids, “It’s only unthinkable if you don’t think it.” Thank you, Dabo Swinney.
Congrats to big brother and seldom guest writer for The Meat Locker, Rob Carli for finishing third at the second annual Charleston Angler GoPro Film Festival. The video is filmed locally in Charleston and chronicles a few good days of fishing for some spot tail bass, aka redfish.
For the third place finish, he took home a pretty sweet new GoPro Hero3 camera and some bragging rights. Congrats again and be sure to check out this fun video. It might even inspire you to go out and participate in next years competition. If this guy can win, hell, anything is possible.
