Caged 'Roid Rage

Jose Canseco sucks.

Apparently Jose Canseco is going around bragging about his steroid usage during his days as a Major League Baseball player. Whatever. He is also outting other players as being steroid users. Again, whatever. None of this is shocking.

What's shocking, at least to me, is that Jose Canseco has the balls - because after all, steroids shrink your testicles - to say that Jason Giambi has the most obvious "steroid user" body he has ever seen.

Well, I guess Jose Canseco never looked in the mirror - an amusing thought for such a narcissist, isn't it? - because I've had the great pleasure (!!!) of seeing the man without his shirt on and he had, without doubt, the biggest, broadest chest I have ever seen.

EVER. Bar none.

I walked behind him, following him into the Toronto Blue Jays locker room after batting practice one day, and his shoulders were so broad that I was not at all sure he'd be able to fit through the door. His last name, emblazoned across the back, barely spanned the distance between his shoulderblades.

I was in the locker room when he took off his shirt, and my first thought was, "If this guy were to punch me in the face, he'd probably kill me." He was that huge.

So he needs to shut up now. A lot.

You notice he only had the balls to do this after his playing days were over. It's an obvious money/fame grab from someone who should have made enough money and fame during his playing days to leave with a little dignity. Blurry is right, baseball is dead.
Without the groupies and constant adoration, I guess he has to speak badly about others in order to make himself look good and feel good about himself.

Hi Jack! I didn't work for the Jays, I was a sportwriter who covered the team (and others) during spring training.
