More AROD BULLSHIT...Today.
Alex Rodriguez "came clean" (pun intended) this afternoon in Tampa, Florida. He met with a full contingent of the media, made a statement and took questions. Here is a little of that bullshit from ESPN dot com...
"Alex Rodriguez expanded on his admission last week that he used a banned substance earlier this decade, saying a cousin injected him with an over-the-counter drug designed to give an "energy boost."
The New York Yankees star third baseman said using the banned drug that he said he obtained from the Dominican Republic was a "stupid mistake."
"I knew we weren't taking Tic Tacs," said Rodriguez, who was joined at the head table with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi. Rodriguez refused to reveal the identity of his relative.
The third baseman said he was injected twice a month in 2001, 2002 and 2003. He said his decision to use what he called an "energy boosting" drug was purely ignorant.
"We consulted no one. It was pretty evident that we didn't know what we were doing," Rodriguez said.
"I'm here to take my medicine," Rodriguez said. "One thing I will say after today I hope to focus on baseball. We have a very special team here. The fact is, it (the steroid story) came out and I'm here to share my story and put it out there, and hopefully I can put this behind me and my teammates don't have to carry the burden of answering all the questions for me.
Spring training represents a new start to me."
I listened to the entire press conference on the MAD DOG show on Sirius radio. He kept calling it a stupid mistake (a three year mistake!!) made by a "youngster." By the way, he was 25 years old and one of the richest people in the entire world. 2001-2003...boy, Alex, it took you a long time to learn that you made a mistake. For someone who cares about his body and what goes into it, YOU'RE A TOTAL IDIOT! You always will be. You're branded as just that. Click on this post's title for more ESPN laughs...really!!
