NBC Demands What MLB Will Not

NBC executives may have been juiced over American Gladiators??? stellar debut, but the gladiators themselves were all natural. That???s because NBC Universal subjected the gladiators to steroid testing before they could appear on the show.

The 12 cast members were tested as part of their medical examinations and then required to sign a document saying that they were clean and that they could be tested at any time.

Because what fun is watching a man hurl giant sandbags at opponents clinging to precarious rope bridges if there is a possibility that that man is playing dirty?

My bet is NBC Universal is covering their asses in case a sore loser blames steroids for their loss.

I love American Gladitators.

But “natural” is not a word I’d use to describe them. In the 80s or now.

Anyone else think that Wolf should be renamed Cap’n Morgan or something? He is totally swashbuckling and should have a parrot and an eye patch.
