Carolina Juice

Three Carolina Panthers -Todd Sauerbrun, Todd Steussie, and Jeff Mitchell- allegedly received steroids from a doctor around the time of the 2004 Super Bowl, it was reported yesterday.
Now, put aside how laughable it is that the baseball players under investigation for steroid use are all superstars, while the football players are all non-stars, and one of them is a punter. It all makes sense, for three reasons: One, that the middling Carolina team was able to reach the Super Bowl last year. And two, that a pair of incidents- Sauerbrun’s long-running feud with the Gramatica family of kickers, and Steussie’s infamous shot at Page 2’s Bill Simmons (“I guess that’s why he’s not on Page 1”)- can both be explained by ‘roid rage.
