We learned that A-Fraud was â€œyoung, stupid, and naÃ¯veâ€ and bought his stuff through a cousin over the counter in DR. They injected each other. Now, I love my cousins as much as the next person, but would you allow one to stick you in the tookus with a needle? What part of the game is that?
It looked for a minute like he was going to cry, when it came time to say something to his teammates. The thing is, no tears came out. On the true crime shows, they call this a sign of guilt and they are usually reserved for people attempting to feign remorse.
Is he sorry? Probably more so that he was put on blast than for actually doing the steroids. The media is of course going nuts with this. I get it, they have a job to do and a set of questions that needed to be asked, but some of these questions were just way far over the top. Did the injections hurt? Where did you get injected? How did you feel after? Are you serious? This happened six years ago and youâ€™re asking someone who probably doesnâ€™t remember how he felt yesterday how they felt about it? Ok then.
Like he said though, he was there to take his medicine, and it was dished out. So Kudos A-Fraud, you grabbed the bull by the horns and faced your accusers. Heâ€™s been doing all the right things from a PR standpoint, but he may have given a bit more info than he needed to at the conference. How long until Cousin Ray Ray from San Pedro De Marcoris (I see you Colin) is on ESPN with a translator talking about how he and A-Fraud were like the Bash Brothers with their injection parties?
As much as I dislike A-Fraud and his dismal playoff numbers as a Yankee, I canâ€™t help but wonder why none of the other names on the list have been put out there, or what was really hood with some of those reporters in the press conference. The chick in me says they are really just looking for anything to drag him through the mud because media types just love to hate. The wannabe journalist in me says they were just doing their job and asking what the people want to know. The Yankee fan in me says he better have a monster season or else. All of my split personalities can agree on one thing though, that was entertaining television.
Like Teritaâ€™s take on sports? Tired of people assuming that women arenâ€™t die hard sports fans? Or maybe youâ€™re using this column to make sure your bfâ€™s weekly sports obsession doesnâ€™t completely put you to sleep and you can make conversation? Either way, read the rest of Teritaâ€™s sportie run down here.
