A lot of anticipating resulting in a good lesson learned, and the end of an era... the steroid era. There were a few surprises, but more yawns throughout the day. John Rocker was as surprising as snow in December and Sammy Sosa has more controversy surrounding his corked bat than his involvement with steroids. Clemens was not as much of a surprise, but Andy Pettitte was and, as a baseball fan, was rather disappointing. I am not going to judge all of these 'athletes' and I will keep an open mind as the court of public opinion is now in session.
Question: Since Juan Gonzalez was tagged as a violator during his time with the Texas Rangers, how does this make our President look since he was part owner of the Rangers in the '90s?
Selig stood up at the podium, set up very well by Senator Mitchell batting in front of him, and vowed to take action with a strong fist. Donald Fehr is a puppet and I hate unions so I wont dignify his comments with an opinion of my own.
Who was hurt most today? In my humble opinion, the future was hurt today and by future I mean our children. There is a 10 year old who has a Pettitte jersey hanging in his closet and a 7 year old with a Rocket poster in his room. These are the purest years of our lives and we hope and dream and act out those dreams in the backyard as a kid. Today, those dreams were corrupted. I don't feel bad for the adults who made the decisions and took the purest thing in their lives and corrupted it, I feel bad for the kids who were forced to grow up today before their time.
