Breaking McGwire Steroid news....oh wait...

We already all knew this prior...but finally he came forward.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100111/...eroids_mcgwire

NEW YORK Mark McGwire's voice repeatedly cracked with emotion during a telephone interview with The Associated Press as he recounted telling his wife, parents and son that he had used steroids.

His voice breaking, McGwire says, "It's the first time they've ever heard me, you know, talk about this. I hid it from everybody."

During a 20-minute phone call Monday, McGwire says he called commissioner Bud Selig and Cardinals manager Tony La Russa earlier in the day to personally apologize.

McGwire says that when he used steroids, he never imagined he would have to talk about it to national media.

Makes you wonder if his thinking is that coming clean will help him get in.

He's about 8 years too late. He's not getting in.

His votes have gone down every year since his eligibility came up. This may cause a increase in next years voting, but not enough for him to get in.

I think that if he never went to congress and said what he said, then maybe he'd have a chance at getting in to the HOF. Unfortunately him pleading the fifth amendment instantly condemned him in the court of public opinion.

Hopefully this lifts a burden off of him, he always seemed to be a really nice all around guy.

Gotcha. I thought I heard some talk last week about voting, and his name came up. I just assumed it was that time of year.


<---Doesn't give a shit about baseball, so I really had no clue.

This really comes as no surprise to me. I was thinking back, to when him and sosa were in a homerun war, I was thinking even back then that they had to be on steroids. They were bigger then most of the players at the time, Canseco was the only other on that I can remember being that big. I hope that do not let him in HOF. He let a lot of kids that looked up to him, down. I sure hope it was worth it.

I *personally* don't see what the big deal is involving steroids in sports. Mainly involving all these people bitchng about records being broken etc.

Here's a little info for ya... The Russians used steroids in the 1940s to attempt to further their weightlifters placing in the olympics. Use of several AAS derivitives of testosterone came into play after this episode to help beat detection. Unfortunately, only the Olympic body sports tested. Steroids didn't even come under public scrutiny and FDA/Fed ban until the 1980s.

Who's to say that some trainer didn't give hank Aaron a winstrol or deca durobolin type compound (lean strength gains, little gyno or bloat) and say, "hey, this shit'll make you bomb it out of the park."

...think about it. No one would be the wiser.

I didn't know that, very interesting. How readily available were they then?

Arnold admitted using lean compounds to cut weight, multi-winner of the Mr. Universe in the 60s Sergio Oliva used testosterone... Absolutely.

Haha, two days of this "breaking news" and nobody is suprised, or gives a shit.

Baseball IS failure. They shouldn't have even bothered to cover it up.
