Glass House

They say "Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones”. Everyone has come down pretty hard on Mark MacGwire this week,and rightfully so, for taking way too long to admit to steroid use
(see fellow blogger and softball enthusiastic Dio Jackson's blog ) but I have a slightly differ take on the matter. For years we've heard that chicks dig the long ball
and there is no crying in baseball
but the bottom line is MacGwire cheated and now he has paid the price in the court of public opinion. Steroid use is wrong and dangerous, but I feel many people are hypocritical in their criticism of athletes who take it. If roles were reversed, and Performance Enhancing Drugs (PED's) were not banned, I would say most people would probably do them to play the game they loved, be on TV, date hot chicks, and make millions. I would have done them under those circumstances. So before you bad mouth a steroid using athlete for using PED's asks yourself if you would have done the same?
