If you're like me, you've played something called the Steroids Game. The Steroids Game takes place when you sit around a bar -- or a rec room, or a ballpark -- with a number of baseball-loving friends and try to guess who is on performance-enhancing drugs. Perhaps, if you're particularly deranged, you've even played Rotisserie Steroids, which is just like regular rotisserie baseball except that the categories are games suspended (GS), cameramen kicked (CK), testicles ruptured (TR) and days spent in the company of Jose Canseco (DSJC).
