Dear Mr. McGwire An editorial

Dear Mark:

Once again you've taken a high hard one on the chin over your steroid use. Bet you didn't see that coming.

May I offer a suggestion which will shut the nattering nabobs up at once, forever. It will also allow you to stop your whining,and crying on TV. It's unseemly.

Since your steroid use was no surprise to anyone, except perhaps you, take the offensive.

Go back on a national sports interview show. When the interviewer asks if you have anything else to say, say the following:

"America, I used steroids while playing. Major League Baseball didn't care, the Players Union didn't care, the fans didn't care. Sammy Sosa and I saved professional baseball from itself, and the cocaine era. We put fannys in the seats. We made a hell of a lot of money for team owners and management. We didn't do badly ourselves either.

Get off my back, get over the steroids. They are a fact of life. No one cares."

Don't forget how it gave our congressmen a reason to hold hearings and grandstand, rather than do real work on things that actually matter.

Karena said...

Yes, and the only care I have is that we have so few figures for our youth to look up to and admire!

Toad said...

Karena there are millions of admirable role models available. It's become naive, or stupid, to expect those to also be public figures.

Henry Aaron didn't need them.

James said...

Well said , I agree that role models can and should be everyday people.

DAG said...

Well Said Toad - we all just need to mvoe on with our lives.

Patsy said...

It's not the steroids, it's the lying about them. I hate that. Lying sucks, it's a fact of life, but it still sucks.
