The war has been waged...

In our household we are huge baseball fans. M.D. played in college and I have grown to love it because of him. He is a die hard Cubs fan and I am a lover of the Mets. Baseball season is usually a very peaceful and fun time in our home but this year we have waged war over a major issue. These morons and there steroid use.
Exhibit A.
Alex Rodriguez

Although very good looking and considered Mr. Baseball I don't feel it excuses him for steroid use. After the initial release of his past failed steroid tests it took him a month to say he may have taken them but didn't know that is what they were. WHAT THE HELL?!?! I don't know to many people that just take what they are given without asking what it is. M.D. said he still has to have the skills regardless of using the drugs or not and so he just be absolved. Great example for children

Exhibit B.

Manny Ramirez

I love Manny. Yesterday though he was suspended for 50 games after testing positive not once (at spring training) but twice (two days ago) for a drug that helps increase testosterone production after steroid use. It is also used for women with fertility problems. He has now come out and said it was used for erectile dysfunction. REALLY?!?! M.D. of course thinks this whole thing is bullshit and Manny is very talented and once again steroids don't help you see the ball to hit it.

I think these men are awful role models for children and I think the situation would be different if they came out and said "Yes I did it, I felt so much pressure to perform better and live up to my hype. It was the wrong decision and I apologize. No one should do what I did." But they don't they just lie. For as much money as all of these men make accountability should be top priority.

I suppose the battle will continue to rage at my home. I am just glad to know my darling David Wright is just talented all on his own. Oh and so just amazingly HOT!! He is what amazing dreams are made of.

Oh my gosh, it's the same in my house. My husband and I are huge baseball fans, but this steroid thing is making my husband's blood boil!

This whole thing cracks me up. Any GUY who takes fertility drugs from a doctor and claims he doesn't know what they're for (I've been on some of these same drugs) is a complete moron and doesn't deserve to be playing a sport or making money. Not to mention why anyone would WANT to be on drugs like Clomid, etc b/c trust me, they're pure hell.
