Don’t care. Always liked Mark McGuire. Glad he got if off his chest.
In 1998, after an article by Associated Press writer Steve Wilstein, McGwire admitted to taking androstenedione, an over-the-counter muscle enhancement product that had already been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, the NFL and the IOC. At the time, however, use of the substance was not prohibited by Major League Baseball and it was not federally classified as an anabolic steroid in the United States until 2004.
NOW he comes clean? Because he wants to get a job working in the league? Screw that.
He’s a POS. Him, Sosa, Bonds, all the other juicers.
Shocked, I am......
In other news, George Takei has admitted that he’s gay!
I think Maris’ record was 61, not 62.
