(Before we get to my missive, those of you who doubted my ability to play the game of basketball, you're now on notice - watch and learn, son.)
No, you are not to imply from that title that I am on steroids, or ever have been on steroids.
In point of fact, I have nothing against them on a conceptual level, save for they are against the rules of my sport. I am nothing if not honest and amazing.
I did want to take a moment to shed some light on Mark Paul Gosselar's use of steroids before his stint on Saved By the Bell: The College Years.
This was, frankly, something I had always suspected.
In fact, during the original run of Saved By the Bell, I often wondered if Zack (nay, Mark) was envious of how strong Slater (nay, Mario Lopez) was.
Would he ever do something about it, or did he feel his acting charm and natural charisma could carry him through?
The answers - both shocking and not-so-shocking, considering his noticable physical transformation between the two series - are now here.
Zack was jealous of Slater's muscles. Or was Mark Paul jealous of Mario? Was this bulking up for his college experience a choice for the character or for himself?
These are the answers we may never get, so I shall assume what I like. And you?
