Around 3 million people have misused anabolic steroids – or ‘roids’ – in the US. 2.7% of high school students who participate in sports use steroids.
That’s fucked up.
Why do people feel the need to mess with their bodies like this? Because the definition of an athlete has become more about how much you can bench-press rather than talent or actual athleticism.
We are not anti other sports. Jesus we love that shit. But we feel athletes should be able to express themselves in other ways rather than looking like some prick from Jersey Shore. With skill, speed, intelligence, guile and balls.
There is no Barry Bonds of ping pong. Bhuddist monks play our sport. And they will destroy most people over 11 points.
So that’s what we mean when we say we are ‘anti-jock but pro-pong’.
And that’s why #teampunke is looking for players not jocks.
