McGwire and Steroids


Still had a pretty swing

Mark McGwire admitted finally that he took steroids.  I’ve always liked McGwire, and felt sorry that he took as much public abuse as he did.  Here’s a link to an All Swings Considered post I wrote about the fantasy press conference I would want McGwire to hold with reporters.

My Imaginary McGwire Steroid Press Conference

Best McGwire story:  He hit a 515 ft home run to left field off of Randy Johnson in the Kingdom in Seattle.  After the game Griffey was asked about it.  He said that the entire stadium fell quiet when McGwire hit the ball, and all he could hear from where he stood in center field was Jay Buhner over in right yelling, “Daaaaaaaaaaamn!”
