Why I Hate Pro Sports

february 19, 2008

So, this whole steroids thing is just plain stupid -- I am not going to use the term "Human Growth Hormone" or HGH, because it is what it is: Steroids. Check out Andy Pettitte who came out and "apologized" this weekend. Here's what he said:

"I didn't do it to try to get an edge on anyone, I didn't do it to try to get stronger, faster or to throw harder."
Really? So, why did you take steroids?
"I did it because I was told that it might be able to help me."
So, let me get this straight. You took steroids to help yourself. But, you didn't take them to help yourself get the edge on anyone. Nor did you take them to help yourself get stronger, faster or to throw harder. So, why the hell did you take the steroids? What were you looking for the steroids to help you do? Fly like Superman? Leap over tall buildings? Did you take the steroids to help your health decline? Oh, I know, you took the steroids to help you become a better person! No, actually, he took steroids because he thought it would help him heal faster from his injuries.  Isn't that trying "to get an edge" on other players?  I mean, if your fellow player is injured, he sits his ass out of the game until he heals.  You sought a way to get an edge on him by using steroids to heal faster.  What a sad excuse. Cripes! If you're going to apologize, then do it right! Admit it: You, Andy Pettitte, took steroids so that you could get the edge on other players. You, Andy Pettitte, took steroids so that you could get stronger, faster or to throw harder. Stop being such a dumb-ass. And, please don't think that people are stupid as you are -- we can see through your act.  Apology not accepted.
