Sammy Sosa Did Steroids

with 5 comments

So it turns out Sammy Sosa used steroids, too.
OMFG!! I didn’t see it coming!! Of all people…in all sports….Why, Sammy, why?!?!??!

K, so let’s be straightforward for a second. This is why you Americans are deemed dumb and naïve in the eyes of the rest of the world. Roids were not tested, nor banned until the mid 2000’s, yet all these idiotic baseball fans (including some idiotic congress members) act as if their world just disintegrated like it was Brittney Spears’ panties. “How dare he?!” they ask in angst, trying to appear shocked and baffled by this unexpected controversy.

Baseball players cheat. All of them. Get over it already. This sport is a joke and your obsession with numbers and records and statistic is absurd, too – especially since baseball is a big rigged, fake joke. I’m tired of it all. Tired of hearing about it on espn. Tired of reading about it. Tired.

Turning against your former baseball heroes and blaming them for doing something completely legal at the time won’t numb the pain of not becoming a professional athlete yourself. Grow up already.

Also please cease from writing those annoying Facebook / Twitter status updates. None of you have any friends.

  1. I agree with you totally, ‘Stache. People’s responses to all this are ludicrous. When vast sums of money are on the line, players will do what they think they have to do for a leg up, in this case, juicing. The game itself (the Major League Version) may be a joke, but only for those who buy into the Big League “We had no idea!” bullshit.

    I just got back from coaching our mixed PeeWee and Bantam team (12-15 year olds) this evening, and watching a 12 year old girl at second base pick off a line drive hit by a big kid, and a young fella make his first big catch in the field, you realize what the game is all about. The smiles on their faces don’t come from new Maseratis or Mansions gained by steroids. It just feels fuckin’ great to catch the ball, hit the ball, and throw the ball.

    The ‘roid freak Major Leaguers have lost out on more than their morals and values. They’ve lost their pride. Fuck them. The kids know where it’s at.

    Oh, and sorry. I didn’t mean to imply kids had something interesting to do in life. It’s still not sex with twins, I know.

  2. This is a spectacular comment, RGB.
    And honestly I feel bad about calling this sport a joke, that wasn’t fair of me, I know this as a sports fan.

    I know these kids are innocent and their love is real – and I hope for their sake that their feelings toward the game will remain forever pure. I just feel like there’s so much hypocrisy in how the media / congress is handling this and the whole thing seems like, well, a joke.

    Thanks for stopping by, feel free to come again.

    P.S. Have you watched ‘Bigger, Stronger, Faster’?

  3. I haven’t seen it, but I bet it is some interesting viewing. As another casual observer of the American landscape, much as yourself (but not quite immersed in it), I also find it humorous to watch educated people try to convince the public they had no idea what was going on. It truly is a joke, a sad, sad joke. On the positive side however, really enjoying your blog. I like the “outside observer from the inside vibe.”

  4. I’m always surprised when people freak out at cases like this. Not only was it legal, like you mentioned, but look at those guys! It’s not humanly possible to be THAT hulking, especially when you see old pictures of these guys (ie: total skinny-boys). I like watching baseball but for the love of all things sport, fans need to take this stuff with a grain of salt.

    • The stuff you think about is the stuff i think about. And vise versa.
