A-Rod Saga Continues

A desperate Alex Rodriguez and his legal team filed suit in Manhattan's U.S.
District Court Monday in an effort to have his 162-game suspension for
performance-enhancing drug use overturned. The disgraced New York Yankees
third baseman named both Major League Baseball and the Players Association as
defendants in the 42-page document, arguing that the Commissioner's Office
violated the collective bargaining agreement with its pursuit of the
suspension and that the union did not properly perform its duty to fairly
represent his case. Rodriguez's complaint also made public Saturday's ruling
by arbitrator Frederic Horowitz, who reduced the star slugger's original ban
from 211 games to 162 but prohibited him from playing in any regular-season or
postseason games in 2014. Rodriguez's attorneys argued that the verdict should
be dismissed on the grounds that Horowitz's decision was not consistent with
the terms of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program and that he
showed "evident partiality" to Commissioner Bud Selig during his review.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
