Am I the only one who has had enough of this?
A memo to ESPN, SI and every other media outlet covering this steroid nonsense. It’s enough.
For over 3 years now, this discussion has gone on…and on…and on. I, for one, am sick of it.
Enough with the discussions about who used them and who didn’t. Enough with the discussions about whether or not admitted users and those who tested positive belong in the Hall of Fame. Enough with anything related to steroids in baseball. It’s just too much.
I can’t deal with it any longer. I don’t even want to turn on ESPN. Haven’t we already beaten this story to death? Wasn’t that accomplished in 2007 with the release of the Mitchell Report and all the fun discussions (think Roger Clemens) that took place afterward?
In fact, if there was any confusion, I thought we buried the story last season with the admissions from three of baseball’s current sluggers (Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz) that they used PED’s in their careers.
But no. Big Mac comes out and confirms what we already knew – and I knew since middle school, that he used steroids in his storied career. Really? How shocking.
I’ve had enough now. I don’t want to hear anymore of this. I’m boycotting ESPN for 24 hours. After that, I’ll check things out and hopefully we’ve moved on.
I make a pact right now on behalf of Chris and I. No steroid discussions. Ever again. We might do what we did yesterday morning – point out McGwire admitted his use, give a good link and move on. But, no discussions, no “analysis” no rehashing all our old stories about this from the past.
