So today we watched an episode of “Walker, Texas (New York) Ranger” called Devil’s Turf. In it, an evil bodybuilder/trainer dude, proprietor of the titular Devil’s Gym, introduces a group of high school football players to their one-way ticket to Div I scholarships — “powerball”: a combination of steroids and speed. This prompted this exchange:
Schnookie: The Devils take the opposite of that. They get together before games and gobble down handfuls of quaaludes.
Boomer: Yeah. They take Human Shrink Hormone.
Pookie: Absolutely. Their powerball is a cocktail of Human Shrink Hormone and Ambien.
Whatever the actual chemistry of it, be forewarned — if you stop by at the notorious Devils’ Gym after hours, you’re going to end up like the kid before the opening credits of this episode of Walker. You’ll be so overcome by the effects of the Powerball that you’ll drive your motorcycle into an explosive wreck with a big-rig. Only instead of enjoying the ride like the Walker kid did, you’ll be sound asleep and getting smaller by the minute.
