The world learned yesterday what the world already knew: Mark McGwire used steroids throughout his career. Though all of us seemingly already knew that, the admission did take one person by surprise: Mark McGwire.
"I was kind of shocked to hear the admission." Explained the former Cardinals first baseman. "I mean I always suspected that I used steroids but was never sure. I saw myself before the congressional hearing, and I was like 'Man, I sound guilty.' but even then there wasn't smoking gun proof that I used. Then I came out and admitted it, and I finally realized that I used throughout my career."
Asked to elaborate, Mark continued.
"Well throughout the late 90's I was saying that I was on Creatine, and it made sense, but then I hit 70 homeruns, and I had to think that there's no way I was only using creatine. Then the Mitchell Report came out and I wasn't in it, so I thought maybe I didn't use, but then I thought back to my Oakland days and the vived memories of Jose Canseco jabbing needles filled with steroids into my butt, and I thought, boy I'm guilty, but I still had my doubts. Maybe it was creatine in those needles. Maybe it was flax seed oil or vitamin B12. Then when I admitted it last night, I finally realized that I did use steroids. Its crazy because I was my favorite player throughout the 90's, and now I feel like I let me down. My second favorite player, Derek Jeter, is now my favorite of all time."
