We wonder when Charlie Sheen was asked if he wanted to get roasted, if he thought it was smoking weed with James Franco and Justin Timberlake. If so, he is in trouble.
It was announced this morning that the next person to be roasted after Donald Trump on Comedy Central will be Charlie Sheen. There are going to be quite a few "Duh, winning" and tiger blood jokes.
The special will tape September 10th an air September 19th.
Charlie had this to say about the roast; “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while, it’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
This comes on the heels that Charlie admitted to taking steroids for his role in the 80's movie "Major League" to improve his fastball. Yep, that's why he did it.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Duh, Funny!
Mark McGwire told the Associated Press today that he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998. He also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
"I wish I had never touched steroids," McGwire said in a statement. "It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era."
McGwire decided to come clean as part of his return to Major League Baseball as a hitting coach for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are managed by Tony LaRussa who was one of McGwire's biggest supporters when he played under him in Oakland and later in St. Louis, where McGwire finished out his playing days in 2001.
McGwire is the second major baseball star in less than a year to admit using illegal steroids, following the New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez last February. And let's not forget Jose Canseco's battle with the steroid demons and his admission. Looks like Jose was ahead of the curve on this trend.
Would McGwire have been able to hit those record-setting 70 home runs in a season without the steroids? McGwire said, "I had good years when I didn't take any, and I had bad years when I didn't take any. I had good years when I took steroids, and I had bad years when I took steroids. But no matter what, I shouldn't have done it and for that I'm truly sorry."
McGwire had a chance to come clean in 2005 when he was questioned by a Congressional committee about steroid use. At the time, he repeatedly said "I'm not here to talk about the past" when asked whether he took illegal steroids in 1998 or at any other time.
As a sports fan, this kind of news is always disappointing. What records are "real" anymore?
McGwire says ""Baseball is really different now — it's been cleaned up." What do you guys think? Is "the steroid era" really over? - Dr.FB
In a new interview with ESPN, Alex Rodriguez has admitted to the use of performance enhancing drugs when he played with the Texas Rangers between 2001-2003. He told Peter Gammons:
"When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me, and I needed to perform -- and perform at a high level -- every day.
Back then, it was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naïve. I wanted to prove to everyone that I was worth being one of the greatest players of all-time. I did take a banned substance, and for that I'm very sorry. I'm deeply regretful."

From SF Gate and the AP:
A federal judge on Wednesday unsealed hundreds of pages of court documents at the heart of the government's criminal case against Barry Bonds, including positive drug tests that prosecutors linked to the home run king.
The documents also include a transcript of a taped conversation between Bonds' personal trainer and personal assistant discussing injecting the slugger, plus a list of current and former major leaguers, including Jason Giambi, who are scheduled to testify for the government at Bonds' upcoming trial.
The former San Francisco Giant is charged with lying to a grand jury when he said he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs. His trial is scheduled for next month.
Federal prosecutors allege that Bonds knowingly used steroids, including a once undetectable designer drug.
Bonds lawyers moved to suppress 24 drug tests from 2000-06; more than two dozen drug calendars; BALCO log sheets;, handwritten notes; opinion evidence on steroids, human growth hormone, THG, EPO and Clomid; witness descriptions of Bonds'"physical, behavioral and emotional characteristics" — including acne on his back, testical shrinkage, head size, hat size, hand size, foot size and sexual behavior — recorded conversations that didn't include Bonds; and voice mails allegedly left by Bonds on the answering machine of former girlfriend Kimberly Bell, which the government says "many of which were extremely hostile and threatening."
The documents unsealed Wednesday are connected to Bonds' efforts to prevent prosecutors from showing the jury much of the government's evidence, including at least four positive steroid tests they argue can't be conclusively linked to Bonds because of how they were processed.
According to records prosecutors took from BALCO, Bonds tested positive on three separate occasions in 2000 and 2001 for the steroid methenelone in urine samples; he also tested positive two of those three times for the steroid nandrolone. Prosecutors want to use those test results to show Bonds lied when he told a grand jury in December 2003 that he never knowingly used steroids.
