STEROIDS AND THE CHICAGO CUBS

For years now, I have been hearing Cubs fans running off at the mouth about Mark McGwire and steroids. However, upon examining the facts there have been 9 major leaguers busted for steroids, and of those 9, 3 are former Cubs (Palmeiro, Felix Heredia, and most recently Matt Lawton). Since it is ok for Cubs fans to speculate about Big Mac, then us Cardinal fans can speculate as well. Dare I mention the name Sammy Sosa.

Although Sammy, like McGwire, has never been caught it is just as obvious that Sammy was a juicer. We do know one thing for sure, that Sammy unlike McGwire was a cheater, remembering that Sammy was caught red handed using a juiced bat. So knowing that he juiced his bat, it would be safe to say that he juiced his body as well. Not to mention, in his younger years Sammy was a 180 pounds, only to watch him baloon up to 230 or more.

So what is the point of this post, well not much, but knowing that 3 former Cubs have tested positive for roids, and knowing Sammy was a juicer, I think it is safe to say that the Cubs far out rank the Cardinals in steroid consumption. So I should never hear a Cub fan popping off about Big Mac.

A FUNNY STORY FOR CUBS FANS...

Five Chicago sports fans, one from each of the 5 professional teams in Chicago, decided to go mountain climbing one day. When they reached the top of the mountain, the Blackhawks fan said "this is for the Hawks", as he threw himself of the top of the mountain. The Bulls fan said "this is for the greatest team in the 90's" and he too threw himself off the mountain to his death. The Bears fan said "this one is for Da Coach, and the 1985 Super Bowl Champions." He threw himself off the mountain as well. Then the White Sox fan said "this one is for the Southsiders", as he took the Cubs fan and threw him off the mountian. So that he the Sox fan, was the only one remianing at the top of the mountian.
