While Mark McGwire was lying to Bob Costas on MLB Network about taking steroids to recover from injuries, ESPN was trotting out random people to comment on the subject. They had Tony LaRussa on earlier in the day, and then brought out the foremost expert on the topic of PEDs. Wait, it was Bobby Knight? And he compared steroids to Gatorade? Naturally.
Lost within all of this, is the fact that Bob Knight is a close personal friend of Tony LaRussa and was possibly just on to defend Mark McGwire’s former manager (and current boss). I mean, by the true definition of “performance enhancing” I guess Gatorade would fall into that category, but that’s just a tad bit of a stretch there Bobby.
