I see what you did there, and thoroughly approve.

In more banned substances abuse, Ray Lewis (and I love sports + PEDs for making these sentences possible) "contacted a company owned by a former male stripper to obtain a deer-antler velvet extract after tearing his triceps in October."

I can't help but picture Ray, in full uniform, killing a deer with his bare hands and chewing the velvet off the antlers. So is the media going to care about this? They like Ray so probably not, but it's evil steroids so maybe so, but it's in football so we don't really care.

Given the prior history, I'm guessing no. Of course ESPN had caught the vapors at lunch time, but that's just because there's nothing to do during media week so this qualifies as a Giant News Story. Right up until they forget about it. Again.
