McGwire Comes Clean...Ha

1/12/2010 1:13 PM

Mark McGwire finally admitted to what we all knew...he used steroids.  He claims it was only for health reasons, not to help him hit home runs.  Really, Mark? Every athlete's battle is against injury because most athletes' careers are shortened because of them and so aren't their stats.  The longer McGwire was able to play at his healthiest at the prime of his career was the difference.  He shouldn't be kept out of the Hall Of Fame because of steroids but he needs to acknowledge they may have helped his numbers.

Former Hog and current Atlanta Hawk Joe Johnson put it on the Boston Celtics again last night.  Joe will be a free agent at the end of this season and he already turned down a 5 year $60 million deal form the Hawks.  The max contract Smooth Joe could be looking at will be a 5 year deal worth around $100 million.  The question is will a team pay him that?  Most NBA teams are able to pay  at least two superstars $20 mil a year and still put together a strong cast of supporters.  Where will Joe end up??  Maybe teamed up with Lebron, Wade, Chris Bosh, or Dirk?

Simon Cowell announced this is his last season with the phenomenon American Idol.  Many people think it will never be the same.

Thanks to Chris Kramolis from Tropical Smoothie Cafe for his Average Guy Movie Review of "Sherlock Holmes".  He gave it 3.75 bananas.    And a special thanks to Jim Harris from who always joins us in The Zone on Tuesdays.
