- Damon, back in his "Sexy Jesus" yearsThe question was asked, "Johnny, what would have been worse?" Prepare to be awed:"Murdering someone... There's plenty of things that could be worse than what he did."That's right, folks. Just remember, next time you're getting down on a player because he used steroids, or HGH, or something else, he could have killed someone. See, now that whole steroid thing doesn't seem so bad, huh?What I can't quite communicate to you in print is the exact length of the pause Damon took after his revelation that murder is, in fact, worse than cheating at baseball. It was a good ten seconds, filled with stammering attempts at speech, apparently as Damon tried to think of a single other crime worse than steroids. Sadly, he was unable to, leaving us all to assume that steroids follows murder as the second-worst thing a human being can do.And here I thought A-Rod might have to worry about a suspension. Turns out, he could be on trial in the Hague very soon.
