All right, so I promise not to use the S-word. But the new brouhaha* over Dr. Elliott Perlman is pretty damn funny. Two weeks after he testified before Congress that baseball's new testing policy is great, we find out that he's been overstating his credentials. For example, he got his M.D. in Guadalajara, Mexico, and not SUNY, like his bio from back in his days with the Jets says. And there are some "exaggerations".
So that's pretty hilarious in itself -- he was the only guy baseball could find to defend their new policy, But I also like that:
1) I think he's not being honest about his name either. Look at the photo -- he's clearly Rob Reiner.
2) The guy who broke the story is named "Duff Wilson". Not sure why that's funny, but it is somehow.
3) Best of all, when Ron Colangelo, a VP of the Jets, was told about the discrepancy, his response was:
"Oh my goodness, oh my goodness gracious."
Talk about lame. I'm no football expert, but if you ask me, he should be fired on the spot.
* that's right, I said "brouhaha". Oh, I went there.
