Druken Orgies and Softball-- In Prison

Posted by Mark McCray |

This has nothing to do with the Yankees but with all of the talk floating around about steroids, players, liars, and jail time I had to post this. Don't be shy to leave a comment and let me know what you think about this monumental waste of tax dollars...

From Abbie Boudreau and Scott Zamost of CNN.com:

Softball, drunken orgies and a prison system run like the mafia. That's what Florida's former prison secretary says he inherited when he took over one of the nation's largest prison systems two years ago.

Florida Prison secretary, James McDonough, described a bizarre prison culture among those that ran the system -- one that he says seemed obsessed with inter-department softball games and the drunken orgies after the games.

"I cannot explain how big an obsession softball had become," he said. "People were promoted on the spot after a softball game at the drunken party to high positions in the department because they were able to hit a softball out of the park a couple times."

"Guards were importing and selling steroids throughout the prison in an effort to give them an edge on the softball field."

"The connection between the softball and the parties and the corruption and the beatings was greatly intertwined."

The parties and orgies were often carried out at a waterfront house built on prison grounds for a former warden with taxpayer dollars, McDonough said. The house was complete with a bar, pool table and hot tub where the orgies were held.

Yep, that's right kids-- steroids and drunken orgies aren't just for baseball players and 50 cent anymore.

They are for prison guards as well. Wow...
