WWE suspends wrestler for passing steroid test

World Wrestling Entertainment made some news on Monday, when it was announced that they had suspended one of their top contenders- Todd “Sasquatch” Sorensen, for what they deemed to be a violation of their “wellness policy”.

But the Daly Dose has learned that the violation consisted of Sasquatch actually passing a drug test, and proving that he is in fact, steroid free.

“Look, we have certain expectations for our wrestlers.” said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. “We expect them to take care of their bodies, and Sasquatch failed to live up to those expectations. As a result, we are forced to suspend him for 60 days after which, he can test again and hopefully get it right.”

Sasquatch was baffled by the ruling.

“Look, I may not be a very smart man. I am just a hard working guy, that goes to work every day, and tries to carve out my own version of the American dream.” Sasquatch responded on Monday. “I had thought that I was doing what was right by avoiding anabolic steroids of any kind. But I can see now that I made a huge mistake.”

Sasquatch continued “I will make this right. I am working right now to try to attain as many anabolic steroids as I can get my hands on. Does anyone have Alex Rodriguez’s phone number? Jose Canseco? The Russian track team?”

Brock Osweiler on Von Miller contract: “You’re welcome!”

It seems like only yesterday that the Denver Broncos defense was telling former quarterback Brock Osweiler that he owed them a big thank you.

Now the shoe is on the other foot.

After Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller signed a six-year deal to stay in Denver for $114.5 million dollars, Osweiler feels that he is a due a thank you as well.

It was just back in March that Osweiler signed a four-year deal with the Houston Texans worth $72 million dollars.

And cornerback Aqib Talib pulled no punches in stating that he felt it was the Denver defense that earned him that hefty pay raise.

“I first was like, Brock man, you leaving? The Broncos tried to get you fifteen-and-a-half, you left for seventeen-and-a-half,” Talib said. “Alright man just make sure we all get red bottoms. Just make sure everybody on the D get red bottoms and bow ties man, we waiting for our gift Brock, I wear a size 45.”

But on Monday, the Texans unproven quarterback raised some eyebrows when he stated that Von Miller owed him some gratitude as well.

“Look, I should get some of the credit for that deal.” he said. “I started seven games and played in eight. And in those games we converted just 41 times on third down out of 114 tries. Plus, I had eight turnovers! Do you know how many more defensive possessions I got for Von and that defense? He owes me big time!”

The comments were the first from Osweiler about his former team, as he skipped both the team visit to the White House, and the Super Bowl ring presentation.

He is now focused on his new job leading the Texans.

“I am just hoping that my new teammates like J.J. Watt can see how much I helped the defense in Denver. I am going to get them more playing time and that should help them earn better future contracts. I don’t want to toot my own horn or anything, but beep beep!”

NBA team signs neighborhood H-O-R-S-E champ to multi-million dollar deal

There has been a lot of discussion about the money being spent in the NBA this offseason, and on Monday the Houston Rockets did nothing to slow that dialogue.

After winning his Hunters Creek neighborhood H-O-R-S-E championship, local businessman and father of four Ted Blanford, was offered a three-year deal worth an estimated $37 million dollars. The offer comes with an with an opt-out option after the second year.

The 33-year-old financial analyst was as surprised as anyone about the life-changing offer.

“I has been shooting pretty good from the corner by the mailbox.” Blanford said. “That’s my shot. And then I made a granny shot from the three point line to win our neighborhood game. But it isn’t like I expected anything like this.”

Blanford said that he had tried out for his high school team as a senior only to be cut prior to the season.

“I wasn’t very good. I can’t dribble very well and I am a liability on defense.”

But Rockets manager Daryl Morey thinks that makes him a perfect fit for his franchise.

Houston is currently at least $70 million dollars under the 2016-2017 NBA salary cap, and will be looking to sign even more players to big money contracts over the next few weeks.

“The bottom line is that we have money to spend.” Morey defended. “I mean we tried to give it to Dwight Howard for goodness sake. I think that just shows how desperate we really are. Blanford can’t be any worse than that guy.”

Scientists warn: Warriors bandwagon cannot support growing population

Oakland, CA- With the recent addition of forward Kevin Durant, scientists are warning that the Golden State Warriors bandwagon is nearing a very unhealthy capacity.

Researchers from the National Science Foundation are warning the general public that the bandwagon is nearing the extent of it’s sustainability, and that it could struggle to support the growing population.

“Look, we already knew that the Warriors bandwagon was pretty full.” stated leading researcher Vincent McKinney. “But when they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals that population dropped to a more healthy level.”

“However, with the addition of Kevin Durant, we are seeing those numbers skyrocket. People are talking about this team going undefeated. There is talk that they could win 200 games next season. I mean, that is physically impossible. But right now logic is not entering into the equation.” McKinney continued.

On Monday, Durant announced that he would sign a two-year deal, with a one-year option, to join the back-to-back Western Conference Champs.

“But super teams don’t always win.” McKinney continued. “And when this happened a few years ago in Miami, we saw a high number of injuries when people fell off of a bandwagon that was filled to capacity.We are hoping to avoid a similar incident right now, but no one is listening.”
