A Reason to Believe Big Mac

by LS Murphy

No one, including myself, was surprised by Mark McGwire's admission of steroid use. Why should we be? Remember that bottle of Andro in his locker that EVERYONE saw?


That is actually my point. McGwire could have easily used that one little instance to admit to using the roids. He could have said, years ago, "You all know I used Andro. That wasn't a secret. You saw it in my locker. It was over the counter. It wasn't illegal to use back then. Now it's banned."

He could have left it at that. But he didn't.

Mac knew to come clean it had to be all the way. He had to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. He did more than Andro. He admitted it.

Should we condone his actions? Absolutely not. But we should forgive him.

It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong. It takes a bigger man to avoid the easy way out.
