The popular drive time radio sport stalk duo, Mike Francesa and Christopher Russo, were discussing the two New York Yankees who have used steroids. High-priced mercenaries both, Jason Giambi has admitted his use, while Gary Sheffield has denied or refused to comment on the allegations. Russo, a San Fransisco Giant fan with the intellectual heft of a cotton puff, remarked that Yankee fans could now no longer razz him about Barry Bonds' doping in view of this news.
Chris Russo is an idiot.
The use of illegal steroids is the biggest disgrace in the Game since the Black Sox scandal of 1919, except you hardly know it because the Commissioner, Bud Selig, is an inept eunuch. Any baseball player who used performance enhancing drugs should have their statistics expunged or demarcated, and the sport should restore the records of Hank Aaron (if Bonds surpasses him) and Roger Maris as being the true and authentic standards. Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, Rafael Palmiero, Giambi, Sheffield and whoever else used should have their numbers disqualified and their eligibility for the Hall of Fame revoked. It transcends whose guy did what or what team they played for, and Russo should know it.
