Mark McGwire admits to using steroids
Shocked, I tell 'ya, shocked! Is this really a huge revelation that the home run king of 1998 was a juicer? This is how cynical we have become about our national pastime: You tell me tomorrow that there is significant evidence that Albert Pujlos, Ryan Howard, and Derek Jeter were all, at one point in time, using anabolic steroids and/or HGH, the collective mindset would be, "well, who else isn't on the 'roids?" Baseball needs to drop it's collective charade on how shocked and surprised that top-name athletes were cheating their way to Cooperstown, because the sport knew these guys were taking steroids, and didn't stop em because baseball became relevant and popular like they haven't seen in years.
