Hey give McGuire credit for telling the truth. No hall of fame for sure. Baseball was tainted, sad.

Well, no way. I just assumed those Popeye arms came naturally. Steroids were not banned when he hit those homeruns, though ...

I hope he will apologize to those honest athletes who had to compete against him during those years and were cheated-out of fair competition, thusly diminishing their possible accomplishments, being drug-free and coming-up short.
The long-term consequences are serious. No matter how once slices it, you are a role model, like it or not.
I once thought that steroids were yesterday's plague, like the old iron curtain teams of the GDR and USSR. Unfortunately, it continues. I hope that there will be a more concerted effort within the Drug Free K-12 teaching, to also warn about the dangers of steroids. It affects our youth so much.
