A-Rod: Sky blue, world round; and other thoughts

February 09, 2009 |

Alex Rodriguez used steroids. That’s real shocking news. In other news, the sky is blue. Is there any name that is going to come out that stops you in your tracks to say, “Wow!”

All you have to do is go back and look at the numbers. The numbers don’t lie. Period. You don’t get better as you reach the age of 35. You don’t mysteriously double your home run totals. You don’t hit 50 home runs on a consistent basis, after I watched Eddie Murray become one of the league leaders hitting 30-plus HRs.

Nothing will surprise me if other big names show up on a steroid list from that time period.

I am happy that A-Rod admitted that he used them, and that he lied in previous interviews. Now we don’t have to spend two years talking about that – like we are still doing with Roger Clemens.

A-Rod’s baby daughter is in the hospital with a serious staph infection. My daughter had a few of those when she was younger. It is scary stuff. Hopefully she gets well soon.

Lawrence Taylor is going to be on the next round of “Dancing with the Stars.” Do I even need to comment on that?

Did anyone watch the Pro Bowl? You can’t blitz, and you can’t line up three wide receivers on one side of the line. I had no idea. Why don’t they just play flag football? It would probably be more fun to watch. I watched for 10 minutes, and then I had to turn it off. “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” was on the Food Network. Guy Fieri has the best job ever!
