Must. Resist. Urge.
Throughout the vast history of the world, there have been plenty of surprises that shook us to our collective core.
In 1522, Magellan proved the world was round. December 7, 1941 quickly became a day that would "live in infamy". And in 1995, it was revealed that Verbal Kint was really Keyser Soze.
Unfortunately, Mark McGwire's admission that he used steroids does not belong in the above list.
I hate to bring up McGwire (again)...but it is what people are talking about.
BrentMayne (Brent Mayne): Big Mac comes clean. Read my take.
GrillCheese49 (Jason Grilli): Is anyone shocked at the news about McGuire? Is he paving the way for more of the same?
Jerry_Remy (Jerry Remy): McGwire finally admits taking steroids when he broke HR record-to be honest I find steroid issue so played out it bores me to death
str8edgeracer (CJ Wilson): I need to start wearing my dare shirts
Last week, McGwire, again, couldn't get a third of the votes necessary to get into the Hall of Fame. That being said...I'm not sure this mix of Twitterers (Tweeters?) know what it takes to get enshrined.
joshuacmurphy: So Mark McGwire copped to using steroids. Oh well. Hopefully this finally gets him his deserved (yes, deserved) place in the Hall of Fame.
MlbPitching: This is a obvious case of double standards. Mark McGwire came clean with his steriod use only after exhausting his Hall of Fame hopes.
xoxoslamma: Mark Mcgwire "admits" to using steroids&yet Pete Rose cannot be initiated into the Baseball Hall Of Fame.. What is wrong with this picture?
ssegal22: finally mark mcgwire comes clean...u may now enter the hall of fame
segansca: If steroids keep Mark McGwire is kept from the Hall of Fame for cheating, then Gaylord Perry needs to be removed for throwing spitballs.
RonKMiller: I think St. Louis fans would give Mark McGwire a hall pass if he murdered their children.
ZhenZhen09: Putain de merde Mark McGwire! I wish he could be removed from the Hall of Fame.
Wow...really? I would have thought it would rank third behind "good health" and three-for-one specials at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.
TommyLasorda: Lenny Harris thanks God every night that he was a Dodger.
For years, I've been a fan of Randy and Jason Sklar. From their scattered television and movie appearances to their own shows and stand up specials...I love 'em! You'd be hard pressed to find a pair of comedians that know more about the game of baseball.
Check them out on Twitter, but only after you catch up with their antics as Leyland and Leif Topps.
Have someone you think everyone should follow? Perhaps you yourself have read some interesting tweets in the past week…drop me a line or leave a comment below. See you next Tuesday!
