Giambi Continues Classy Ways

I'm hoping all the people who think of Jason Giambi as the one "winner" in the steroids scandal because he was "man enough" to "apologize," and let him completely off the hook while villifying Barry Bonds, just because he's closer to a big record than anyone else, will admit that they're totally wrong.

(Lupica feels the same way.)

[Update: Someone, as recently as yesterday, wrote a glowing piece on the classy Giambi. "Oh, thank you for being so great, Jason! Can I touch your slicked back hair, Jason? Can we sit in a hottub together, apologizing to each other all night?" (quotes may be slightly exaggerated)]

While we're talking about travesties, Joy linked to an article the other day by a slug named Walace Matthews. It will infuriate you too much to read it, I promise, so I will link to it here at Fire Joe Morgan. The boldface is the real article (I'm serious, this is not a joke), and the non-bold is FJM's responses, which are exactly what I would have said.

I just read about Giambi over at Highbrid Nation and the writer over there really put things in perspective for me. The media has really blew the whole "performance enhancing drug" thing out of proportion. Seriously, I'm not saying its ok to use these drugs but can we please stop acting like these drugs give athletes some kind of super human advantage over thier peers.
We'll agree to disagree on this one. You're welcome for the free plug.
How have I missed Wallace Matthews for all this time? Just lucky, I guess. Maybe I should play my number on the way home...
Pardon my French, but it was a horseshit article by a horseshit writer. I put up my take on that asshole at my site...
From Bosnian: "Your comment window is - for me - in Swedish. This is strange because my girlfriend is Swedish and none of the settings on my computer are set in any other language than English. I wanted to tell Evorgleb that the pustule on his shoulders utters pithy irrelevance on the issue of steroids - Giambi confessed to using steroids during his MVP year with Oakland. Bonds' 73, his 3000, his 755+ all stink like someone just pulled their finger out of their ass. Lots of every day Americans are using HGH / steroids to feel younger than they are, to recover faster from injuries than they otherwise would and become stronger by taking (steroids). I have a friend who juices himself up and claims all of the above for himself. I'll trust the experts who say it is completely unwise to use, but I'll take his word for it that 'roids are a powerful elixir.

Yours, Bosnian / Rick"
