The gears of justice grind slowly, but they do grind, and sometimes they actually get their man – or woman, as the case may be.
The sports world saw its share of slow-moving justice this week, from the global to the local.
New York Yankees’ third basemen Alex Rodriguez has already admitted he used steroids, but only after his tests were leaked to the press. He’s still playing, and is now one just home run away from hitting 600. Twenty years ago this would have been big news – but since suspected steroid users Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds crossed that threshold, the luster is lost. About half of those polled said they simply don’t care – and they polled New Yorkers. If they don’t care, why should we?
Rodriguez cheated himself out of his own celebration. Seems about right to me.
