10/27/2005: Hit a nerve, apparently....
Major League Baseball is apparently seething over a set of commercials which were aired (at least in some parts of the country; I didn't see them, myself) during the baseball postseason:
SAN FRANCISCO - The latest "Got Milk?" commercial hit a little too close to home for Major League Baseball. Poking fun at the league's steroid scandal, the television ad for the California Milk Processor Board talks about a player getting pulled from a game "after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance."If you're interested in seeing the ads themselves, they're on the web (of course). However you may run into some network congestion issues (I did when I tried to look at them); unsurprisingly, they appear to be quite popular.
In the next scene, a coach pulls a carton of milk from the slugger's locker.
