THE YEAR: 2054. The place: National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y. The scene: A Little League coach takes his team on a tour.
Wow, Coach! It says on this plaque that this Barry Bonds guy hit 73 home runs in one season!
Yep. 2001, Zenon.
Cool! Nobody's hit even 50 homers since, like, before President Schwarzenegger, right, Coach?
Yep. Not since Aught-2.
But what does the hypodermic needle next to his name mean?
It means his records are suspicious, Blorzo, because he may have taken steroids. All the players in this section of the Hall have needles next to their name. That's why people call this part Dupers' Town.
Why did they take stereos, Coach?
Steroids, Zyzzgy. They were banned way before you were cloned. They made you mad strong. Guys would go on them after the season, come back 25 pounds heavier and knock the ball from here to the ozone shield. Guys started hitting home runs with check swings!
