Juiceball is a satirical commentary on the All American pastimes; baseball and fast foods. A whimsical look at the serious issue of performance enhancement drugs in sports.

We were a little surprised that any offense was taken by what we considered some pretty tame spoofing. Tastes and sensitivities vary, of course, and maybe we could have guessed, but we really see this weighing in as rather gentle irony, not caustic ridicule. We hope that people will appreciate it in the spirit that it is offered.

Humor has always been a good way to bring up a touchy topic, but hitting the funny bone sometimes entails some discomfort.

In this case we are struck by the observation that we Americans are in turmoil over what we put into our bodies, and what we know we shouldn’t put into our bodies. We often tell each other what we should do, but then we have trouble doing so ourselves.

We seem to want the “More-Bigger” even when it could kill us. Why?

This is funny

I thought this was funny. Graphics and animation were excellent. Excellent voice acting. I guess this shows that steroids is considered cheating but if we all eat like "americans" instead of using steroids then we will all end up being slow fat people. Nice idea of bringing up two issues that are going on in the U.S. today. It is said that about 3 out of 4 people in the U.S. is over weight. Again you did an amazing job drawing the graphics. Characters and backgrounds looked very professional looking. Excellent work!

cool one

that was a cool animation... a nice original idea behind it depsite the obvious baseball and performance enhancement drugs theme to it. you don't see too often... so i found that to be quite original and also added some extra entertainment to it. your efforts were also quite good as well, that also made it more enjoyable to watch. glad to see this one win an award too.
