Another One Cheats the Game

Sorry Mark, But the Time Has Passed to Talk About the Past
This Confession Is for the Birds But McGwire Gets Steroid Use Off His Chest
He's a First Ballot Hall of Shamer and a Fraud, But That's About It
If You Got Fooled into Following the McGwire-Sosa Home Run Race to Break
the Great Roger Maris's Record in 1998... Go Take a Hot Shower
I'm Glad He Finally Admitted What We Already Knew. Sincerely, Barry Bonds
McGwire Blames Bud Selig and Donald Fehr's So-Called 'Steroid Era'
Next They'll Be Telling Us That Sammy Sosa and Bonds Cheated, Too
He Should Have Gone with the 'Vitamins and Supplements.' Sincerely, David Ortiz
If Only the Media Knew What Was Going On Back Then... Hey, Wait a Minute...
This Just In, All the New Long Ball Records Are Completely Phony,
and Hank Aaron Remains Baseball's Home Run King

"I remember trying steroids very briefly in the 1989/1990 off season and then after I was injured in 1993, I used steroids again. I used them on occasion throughout the nineties, including during the 1998 season." -- 1.11.10, Mark McGwire finally comes clean
