Barry Bonds is Proud of Mark McGwire

Nothing like two guys that aided in butt-raping the sport of baseball catching up and spreading good cheer via the press. Barry showed some McGwire love when he (finally) showed up to the 2000 Giants team reunion: “I have a really good friendship with Mark McGwire. I’m proud of him,” the 45-year-old Bonds, back in the Bay Area for a reunion at AT&T Park of the Giants’ 2000 NL West champion team, said when asked what he thought of McGwire’s January admission.

The State Senate Has Nothing To Do

Dammit. You pussies. The State Senate has voted to rename Mark McGwire highway. McGwire has now admitted he used steroids, and the state Senate voted unanimously Monday to rename the section of interstate the Mark Twain Highway. The measure now goes to the House. The bill also would name sections of a few other highways for noted Missourians. We wanted the highway to stay with the current McGwire name not just because he was still pretty kick ass in 1998.

More State Senators Running Wild: McKenna Hates Mark McGwire

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with our state senators?! First they hate on poor defenseless nudie bars, then they try to strong arm the zoo, and now…well they are kicking a man while he’s down. A Missouri state senator is trying to remove Mark McGwire’sname from a five mile stretch of Interstate 70 that runs through St. Louis. It’s the same lawmaker who pushed for the road to be renamed in honor of McGwire after his 1998 home run fueled season. [Read More]

Pujols is Proud of McGwire For Coming Out?!

Over the last weekend the national media descended on St. Louis for a chance to talk steroids with Tony LaRussa, Albert Pujols and of course Slightly-Less-Big Mac. Pujols had some really nice supportive things to say about McGwire to the press, but we can’t shake this feeling that Pujols is a little confused about what Mark confessed too exactly… Maybe not though. McGwire did seem pretty happy dancing with those “Single Ladies” in that video. [Read More]

We Feel Bad for the One Guy that Was Apparently Surprised by the Mark McGwire News

We here at Punching Kitty headquarters weren’t exactly surprised by Monday’s revelation that former home run champ and current St. Louis Cardinals batting coach Mark McGwire finally came clean, admitting that he did in fact take steroids during his career. However we can’t say that about everyone. One South County Cardinals fan apparently fell back against the wall clutching his chest while whispering “dios mio!” to himself like some old Latina woman.

McGwire to Everyone: “Oh THOSE Steroids! Yeah, I Took Those. Sorry.”

In a story about as shocking as the day Rosie ODonnell came out of the closet, today St. Louis Cardinals hitting coach and former home run champ Mark McGwire confessed he took steroids during his major league career, including 1998. Which of course is the year that JD Drew first played major league baseball…oh and he and some crazy black guy hit a bunch of home runs. McGwire said he also used human growth hormone, and he didn’t know if his use of performance-enhancing drugs contributed to some of the injuries that led to his retirement, at age 38, in 2001.

Tony LaRussa to Return as Cardinals Manager, to Bring McGwire With Him

According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, long-time Cardinal skipper Tony LaRussa will return to the Cardinals for at least the 2010 season, which is pretty much what every one thought would happen. The Cardinals return next year with at least the best hitter in the game in Pujols and the tandem of Cy Young candidate pitchers in Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter, together that is a recipe most managers, especially Tony, just can’t pass up.
