Mark McGwire Complete Re-Cap

Mark McGwire came clean and admitted he used steroids for a good portion of his career. Who was more relieved, TLR or Big Mac’s suddenly substantial neck waddle. Seriously, if you live on a farm, do not click on any of the links below marked VIDEO- you’re chickens might get crazy with jealousy. I don’t know if the new steroid PSA shouldn’t just be a closeup of that loose skin…

Bob Costas had the most in-depth interview of the night and did a nice job of asking some pointed questions without getting too preechy. It’s honestly uncomfortable asking a guy 5 times your size about needles n’ horseplay in a bathroom stall without feeling a twinge of fear. Well done Bob. Well done
