Ridiculing McGuire, in all his Glory

Update, Voting is now LIVE. Please vote for me.
Posting for the bracket contest going on over at Nachos Grande's blog.

disclaimer: the views expressed in the following post are pulled directly from the sarcastic recesses of my feeble little mind and are no reflection on actual fact what so ever:

Round 1 card:

Mark McGuire Collector's Choice Cover Glory:

Or, how steroids turned me away from my true life-long dream:

A: Superstar and runway fashion model, as evidenced by my perfect poise and grace as I sashay to and fro in my pristine white Athletics uniform. Unfortunately, performance enhancement also comes with massive weight and muscle gain, which does not go over so well when trying to pass another on that tiny stage, and his dream quickly faded the night he hip-checked Calvin Klein 3 rows off the stage in Paris.

B: Olympic gymnastic protege, too bad men don't complete in the balance beam...

C: Tightrope walking, look at that balance, I SOOOO could have walked across the Falls!

and now for some Op-Ed, and these are based, in part, on the actual facts:

Dialing Long Distance, Bet he's wanting to call up 1980 and tell his younger self to stay away from the PEDs!  and wipe that cheesy grin off his face while he's at it...

He's looking up to where the ball landed when he should be looking down for where his career was headed, right down there somewhere with his dignity. He may have come clean, but dirtied the sport we love so much in doing so.

he's been quoted:

"This is a great thing that's happening in baseball. We don't know if it will ever happen again."
Mark McGwire

one could only hope so, dumba_ _!

he's also said that he wished he'd never played baseball during the steroid era, For the sake of baseball and America's favorite past time, I could wish that he'd never played baseball, period!

All those home runs. we'll never know whether it was him or the PEDs.

Well, there you have it. My take on the Collector's choice Cover Glory and the man himself,  Mark McGuire. All the glory that only a true scandal could uncover!
Thanks for reading,
