Reports ascended yesterday that Sammy Sosa, the man whom along with Mark McGwire brought baseball back to prominence in 1998 when both men chased Roger Maris’ single season home run record, used some good ‘ol steroids in 2003. Well, who cares?
The year is 2009. 2003 was a long time ago. 2003 was a time when the Florida Marlins were rockin’ out, and the Yankees were still making World Series appearances. 2003 was a time when the New England Patriots were getting ready to make headway on their run for two Super Bowl championships in a row. 2003 was a time when my father passed away.
2003 is long gone.
The only reason this issue is being thrown at everyone’s faces is because it is a plague on baseball that is exclusively brought to you by steroids! Steroids are the only type of vice that will have the past haunt you like it does now. What other type of issue in sports will bring bullshit up from the past?
I don’t care that he cheated. Everybody is practically cheating in baseball today, so I’m not surprised a single bit. Sosa is one of the heroes of many kids growing up in the late 90s/early 2000s, but the year 2009 is among us and I’m no longer surprised at anybody who is injected needles in their asses.
At least baseball is slowly snubbing everybody out, one at a time apparently, even though Bud Selig is the most corrupted bastard I’ve ever seen in my entire freakin’ life!
