After fighting with everyone yesterday about Big Mac, here it is.
First, until yesterday, anything about Mac using steroids was speculation and hearsay, so, anybody arguing that he influenced kids is wrong. Pujols may influence kids to do steroids and he to everyones knowledge is clean right now. So, it's hardly Mac's fault. Now, if somebody yesterday went and picked up steroids for the first time, it would be on Mac. But nobody will do that, why? Because the face of an outed steroid user is one of shame. Plenty of motivation in what is going on for kids not to use steroids, wouldn't you agree?
As for he cheated or lied to us. I hope all these people aren't fans of Jimi Hendrix (acid), the Rolling Stones (everything), the Beatles (yes the Beatles), or any other musical act in the history of the world. Or I hope they have never laughed at Richard Pryor, or George Carlin, or Lennie Bruce, or Robbin Williams for god sake. All of these people lied to you too. But there, you don't seem to mind, because they are just entertainers. Well, good news, so are all these baseball players we are so concerned about. How many people have all these entertainers influenced into starting up with drugs, and the road is a lot more painful and rocky there than with steroids (not to belittle steroids).
Steroids are bad yes, you shouldn't do them, your kids shouldn't do them, but don't be surprised when athletes do them.
