The news broke late last week that Mark McGwire’s brother is trying to publish a book that discloses Mark used steroids, which would be a shock on the order the Earth being round.
Mark became interested in steroids once he saw the positive effects it had on his little brother’s physique and to help him with his chronic injury problems . Jay began hooking his brother up with light dosages and the home run records began to fall. And why is Jay under-the-busing Mark like this you ask? Here’s what he says:
“Mark is a man I think most would like to forgive because his reason wasn’t nefarious—it was for survival. My bringing the truth to surface about Mark is out of love. I want Mark to live in truth to see the light, to come to repentance so he can live in freedom—which is the only way to live. ”
Oh, and, if you didn’t know, he and Mark haven’t spoken in quite some time. Mark McGwire’s One-Eyed Baby Brother Reveals The Not-So-Startling Truth.
While I imagine there’s a whole syringe-full of truth in what McGwire’s brother is saying, that he is trying to pass it off as anything more than a blatant attempt at profiting from his estranged relationship is pretty pathetic.
Man up, dude.
