Because I can’t cover all sports, all the time (I have a life), I am enlisting the help of fellow writers. Speak your mind and give a shameless plug for your own site all at the same times. It doesn’t get better than that! Well, okay, I could pay the guest columnist!

And now, with thoughts on the Alex Rodriguez steroids hoopla, Mike from Section 59: Yankees Blog

I’m sure by now, you’ve heard that earlier today Sports Illustrated broke the story that Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003 when he was playing with the Texas Rangers.

Half of me is angry that another one of my heroes has been tainted. The other half wants A-Rod to get back on the juice!I really want to see what he could do in October while all hoped up on roids.

alex-rodriguez-picture-5All this time, we’ve been blaming the intense media spotlight for his drop in stats from 2003 to the 2004 season when he started with the Yankees. We all owe a major apology to the media, the real reason for his decrease in productivity was that he stopped taking steroids.

I’d really hate to be A-Rod at a game now. There’s so many chants to choose from A-Fraud, A-Rod I want my money back (one of my personal favorites after too many drinks when the Yankees are losing) and who knows what chant they’re going to come up with the steroids. And that’ll be just from the Yankee fans, I’d hate to see what it’ll be like in Boston.

Just the other day I was listening to Sports Center and after the story of Barry Bonds one of the commentators said that he can’t wait to see A-Rod break the record because he was steroid free. Looks like he spoke a little too soon! I’ll admit that I’m kind of pissed about it. Using steroids is cheating and I thought he was above that. I was motivated by his work ethnic, now I’m thinking that I should take to cheating and cutting corners.

I heard some talk about what will come because the test results were supposed to be confidential information.

  • I think it’ll come out that the information was leaked, stolen or from a rogue employee that’s now conveniently fired.
  • It really doesn’t matter. Information like this shouldn’t be kept secret. The fans who pay these guy’s salaries from ticket sales to buying their jerseys deserve to know who was cheating and who wasn’t.

Which reminds me, I’m going to head off to Finish Line and see if they’ll let me return the Rodriguez jersey that I bought in 2004.
