Default A sports joke for geeks like us....

So, an unspecified baseball team has a really promising young player coming up and making a name for himself early in his career. The club owner is seeing dollar signs and a pennant. The coach is seeing the next Babe Ruth.

Well, during the course of his young career, said promising young player decides he thinks he can take his game to the next level if he discretely starts using performance enhancing drugs.

Unfortunately, his plan to be discrete and secretive and all that kinda unfurls as his coach and club owner find out about his new addiction. They don't want this to go public, and they certainly don't want it to go before the baseball commission. They really, really really wanna keep this young player. What to do? What to do?

They try personal intervention to talk him out of it. He seems to accede, but ultimately does not, and tries to score his next round of P.E.D.s.

They try to set him up with discrete drug counseling sessions. No effect.

They try to get his family to talk sense into him. He becomes a little miffed that the club owner and coach would involve his family, but endures the closed circle of humiliation, as long as it does not extend beyond that.

He's planning to purchase his next fix, and the coach and club owner can only come up with one more final option. They request the services of a Jedi Knight.

Just as the young player is about to make his next purchase, the Jedi Knight steps in, waves his hand across the young man's view, and says: "These are not the 'roids you are looking for."



(pa dum bum!)
