I’ve been purposefully mum about the reports Mark McGwire’s brother Jay is shopping a tell-all book in which he describes introducing Mark to steroids in 1994. But I have a couple of things I’d like to offer, as public comment:
– Deadspin broke the news, so I wasn’t sure if it was real or a really good spoof.
– For those who believe Mark used steroids, this new allegation will come with the ‘I told you so’ tag.
– Several publishing houses have passed on the project. This from an industry that once green-lighted OJ to write a book describing how he would have killed his wife and Goldman kid if he had done it. So if these people, who will publish anything, won’t touch this manuscript it’s probably false.
– Jay and Mark are estranged, which again questions the veracity of the manuscript.
– This quote from Jay:
“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. “
What a pompous ass.
My comment? Jay’s an IDIOT, and I don’t think we need to give Jay another thought.
