The guy looked pretty roidy, and though he was calm, he looked like he could get very dangerous a little too quickly. Not only did he lose the case, but the counterclaim went hard against him. Afterward he made a point that they better stay out of his "strike zone".

Strike zone.

Sure, try and google that.

If you enjoy wasting your time, that is. I ended up with:

=====================
"strike zone" steroids -baseball -umpire -sports -tigers -pitch -bat bodybuilding

===>

98 results (0.72 seconds)
Search Results
Ass Stabbing? - Steroidology ...
===============

- Nearly 100 results, small enough to at least glance at each.
- First result: extremely provocative - a website for people who inject steroids into their buttocks. The connection to "strike zone", as mentioned by roidman, seemed peripheral.

- Then it becomes a matter of peering into the Googlesphere Microsearch Background Radiation. GMBR.

Scanning complete.

===================

Results: reassuring. Roided up dudes are not writing routinely about people getting into their strike zones. It appears to not be "a thing."

Yay!

===================

Side result: I notice the GMBR has gotten smaller. Most of the 98 were *real* results, but they were either baseball-related, or were metaphorical in referring, to either the dosage-range, or the location of steroid injections.


You are welcome, oh, and belated squick-alert.
