Mark McGwire used steroids and he finally decided after all these years to admit it to the world today, although it was blatantly obvious to anyone with common sense. Plus, he used them in the "great home run chase" of 1998.
He said he used them to recover from injuries quicker, recovery and to stay healthy. He also added it was part of the 'culture' at the time.
Perhaps it was to get into the good graces of the baseball hierarchy, finally move on with his new job as the Cardinals' hitting coach, or he just wanted to get a load off his chest; however, I'm not going to get excited, angry or show much emotion at today's revelation.
