It always struck me as hilarious that in baseball, there is a right way to cheat that is lovable and quirky, and a wrong way to cheat that is evil etc.
Especially considering the reason the lovable and quirky way was banned in the first place was because it killed a player.
Wait, I don't know this story. What's the deal?
