In breaking baseball news it has just been reported that the Boston Red Sox World Series Championship title is being revoked that due to rampant abuse of steroids by members of the team.
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig announced
“Major league baseball takes this issue very seriously. Professional athletes have an obligation to adhere to a higher standard and must work to uphold that. Recent events within major league baseball and other professional sports leagues have demonstrated that there is a slippage and abuse of the trust of the fans.
In order to preserve our sport and to demonstrate our committment to the fans we are stripping the Red Sox of the title. In the record books 2004 will be listed as not having had a World Series champion.
We intend to continue to work on solving this issue effectively, efficiently and expediently so that we may restore the luster of America’s pasttime before it is further tarnished.”
And who was it that said that the curse had been lifted.
