Milk or Juice?

With the World Series underway, and the opportunistic Chicago White Sox up 2-0 over the frustrated Houston Astros, the state of California has found a way to still make headlines with no dog in the fight. A new installment of an old ad campaign is apparently ruffling feathers in baseball czar Bud Selig's office, as reported by AP.

"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.' In the next scene, a coach pulls a carton of milk from the slugger's locker.

"'There is nothing humorous about steroid abuse,' said Tim Brosnan, executive vice president for business for the league."
