    I don't understand... did he think he was fooling anyone? except for those who wanted to be fooled of course...

    Far from election to the Hall of Fame in four chances and about to re-enter baseball after a long absence, Mark McGwire on Monday admitted to using steroids.

    "McGwire -- who set a single-season record with 70 home runs in 1998, a feat that is credited with helping baseball rebound from the 1994 players' strike -- said he used steroids in the 1989-90 offseason, 1993 and "on occasion throughout the nineties, including during the 1998 season" in a statement released by the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Part of the statement reads:
    I'm sure people will wonder if I could have hit all those home runs had I never taken steroids. I had good years when I didn't take any and I had bad years when I didn't take any. I had good years when I took steroids and I had bad years when I took steroids. But no matter what, I shouldn't have done it and for that I'm truly sorry.
    The team, for whom McGwire played in '98, had hired McGwire as hitting coach in October but had yet to face the media. His reputation took a major hit -- and the suspicion that he used steroids multiplied -- when in a 2005 hearing before a House of Representatives committee he declined to address the matter, saying only, "I'm not going to go into the past or talk about my past. I'm here to make a positive influence on this," and "My lawyers have advised me that I cannot answer these questions without jeopardizing my friends, my family and myself...."

    Steriods, HGH, speed, you name it.... have been involved in sport forever. No big surprise.

    Any athlete that's been at the top of the game knows.

    Once athletes were tested, folks moved to more dangerous stuff (C-17 modded) and to GH (pricey for most).

    The witch hunt continues, but, there will ALWAYS be folks ahead of the hunter.

    When he went forever without even speaking about it, I knew he was guilty. Plus, look at the guy for friggin' f*ck's sake! He went from solidly built guy to monster slugger. And that was in his 30's! Muhfugga pleaseicon_rolleyes.gif...

    I knew he was lying as well! I don't have a lot of sympathy for him. I'm a Dodger fan, I can't look Manny Ramirez in the face anymore either. I believe PEDs are in all sports in one form or another. The drugs are simply not as easy to detect or at least not yeticon_neutral.gif

    GO DODGERS! even though they are gonna suck this yearicon_neutral.gif
