When New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley failed a test for performance enhancing drugs last month, and was suspended for four games, he adamantly denied that he could have possibly taken a banned substance and demanded an investigation:
“While I did not have enough time prior to the deadline to resolve this case, I fully intend to investigate this matter until I am able to figure out what caused the positive test, because I know that I have done nothing wrong.”
But now Kerley has changed his tune, as he returned from his four game ban Jeremy Kerley has s new theory, and it’s supernatural:
“I don’t know. There’s a lot of ghosts around here. Maybe a ghost put it in me. You know the Ghost of Christmas Past? A ghost might have put it in me. I don’t know.”
Jeremy Kerley went from strongly denying using PEDs, to theorizing that a ghost slipped him PEDs, which led to his four game ban. Jeremy Kerley might want to call The Ghostbusters, or set up a night vision camera to catch evidence of the ghosts, as they slip performance enhancing drugs into his morning protein shake. We have heard a lot of athletes use a lot of excuses for performance enhancing drug use, but ghosts are a new one, what’s next elves?
