I have been buying my comic books at a place called Bedrock Comics in Framingham for years. When I stopped in over the weekend Jack, the owner, was clearing out a bunch of toys he had in inventory, including a lot of sports action figures.

The funny thing was that pretty much all the baseball players he had were poster boys for the Steroid Era - Giambi, Canseco, McGwire, Clemens. I asked if he had any Sammy Sosa figures and he said that he had sold one earlier.

The funniest thing was this - he had a McGwire toy that was a kind of game - you pushed a button and McGwire would swing a bat. The best part was that the button looked like it was a giant syringe coming out of his thigh!

You really just can't make stuff like that up.
