The Ugly American

  Here's a few thoughts for you...
First, I was watching Man vs. Wild on the Discovery channel on Monday night and the Man in Man Vs. Wild, Bear Grylls, picked through some bear shit pulled out a few pieces of what he said was apple, rinsed them and ate them! My youngest daughter, the Mug, asked me why he just didn't go look for the apple tree? I think that would have been my first instinct as well! I guess if that's what it takes to survive, I just might have to die! It was funny, Bear said it tasted kinda gritty, kinda like an apple dragged through dog poo....no Bear, it was an apple run through a bear digestive tract! I guess it makes for good TV...or mind numbing TV, whatever you wanna call it. I like it.

Next, on A-Fraud.

I watched his press conference...I don't know why! It was something to do. Anyway..

I get the questions that he's still being asked...he says he didn't believe what he was doing was wrong in one breath and follows it with his cousin and he couldn't ask anybody, they just couldn't!

Here's the deal. I knew this guy in the navy back in the early 80's. It was around the time that the navy started urinalysis testing. His attitude was, I'll quit when they catch me...or more specifically, they'll never catch me! Well, they did and he spent Christmas and New Years restricted to the ship, working extra hours every night. He lost a stripe and half a months pay for two months. They always find out...

But nothing will happen to A-Roid...except maybe, after his career. There are a lot of people that vote for the Hall that say they won't vote for anyone who got caught or admitted to using performance enhancing drugs.

To bad being young and stupid isn't a valid excuse anymore. I'm not an A-Fraud fan, but how come it's okay to say in car racing, if you ain't cheating you ain't trying, but not in baseball?

When he was asked if he cheated, A-Roid said, "That's not for me to say." Okay Mr. Rodriguez, I'll say it for you. You cheated! Just like you did when you tried to knock the ball out of Arroyo's hand in that game against Boston. If you're not sure Alex, just ask yourself this question. Would the captain of my team have done it?

Just a few thoughts...

Have a nice day.
