It is with a good deal of frustration that I once again must provide commentary on Alex Rodriguez. I usually try to avoid professing my direct opinion (and using pronouns for that matter) but honestly, A-Rod has now fully descended into the dreaded Bonds Zone.
Is there a bigger joke or punch line in all of sports than A-Rod? I honestly don't think so. He is a lying, cheating, disgrace to the game, and if — by some miracle — Bud Selig sprouts a set of balls, Rodriguez should be banned from the game for life. Obviously the chances of this are slim to none, but the situation has gotten to the point where it is an outright embarrassment to baseball that this pathetic excuse for a human being remains on a Major League roster. That being vented, lets get on to the latest episode in A-Rod's personal soap opera of disgrace.
A new book by Selena Roberts on Rodriguez has been leaked to the press. Of course, there are new steroid revelations. A-Rod took steroids in high school and with the Yankees, and partook in his consumption with fellow miscreant, former Yankee "pitcher" Kevin Brown. To anyone who has a basic knowledge of steroids and of those who take them, these new facts shouldn't come as much of a surprise.
Steroids are all over America's high schools and colleges. They have been for some time. In the high school setting, 'roids are about as easy to obtain as a bag of weed, and anyone who "dabbled" in their younger days knows that means they are readily available, sometimes easier to score for the under aged youth than alcohol.
The fact that the press — and presumably some of the public — bought into the bullshit A-Rod was spewing at his press conference, is more a commentary on how uninformed the sports world is on the topic, rather than the acting job A-Rod put on.
