Thanks for the fun link! Sports teams need to get a sense of humor like these guys. Because they have nothing to do with steroids, right? "Other activities scheduled for BALCO (Be Gone) Night include a video wall game called “Juice or Juiced?”, The Marion Jones “Two Fat Guys Not-on-Steroids” Race, Public Address announcer Dan Christopherson going through wild mood swings, and fans voting on the All-Time “Non-Steroid” Baseball Team."

There have been a couple of players suspended from the Northern League for steroids. This was mainlhy because they had failed the test in the MLB minor leagues.. The Testing policies of the Independant teams are not well know. The Northern league maintains that each teams does test for drugs and other substances. This is just plain fun. Mike Veck is a minority owner of the Canaries. He is also involved in the ownership of the St Paul Saints. They were the ones who had the pig take the line-up ard to home plate.

Oh, that's awesome! The PA Announcer is going to go through wild mood swings? "All the fans will be tested by the end of the game?" "The Marion Jones 'Two Fat Guys Not On Steroids' Race?" The Veeck family is a fountain of genius. Awesome, awesome, awesome.
