So A-Rod is in the schnews again, this time over his use of A-roids – when they weren’t illegal in Major League Baseball.
I mean, let’s face facts. A-Rod didn’t play any better when he took the juice. He didn’t whack 60, 70 or 80 home runs during those years. All he got were bigger muscles.
Understand, I am NOT in favor of steroid use in baseball, football or… foos ball. If I had my druthers I’d prefer hearing that A-Rod never took them. I think it sends a terrible message to young athletes.
But a far worse message, in my opinion, is how A-Rod has been singled out.
How about a little bit of fairness in reporting?
Why not reveal the other 102 names on the list – the other players who tested positive during the same era?
Want to know why they won’t?
Because none of them made as much money as A-Rod, that’s why. If A-Rod wasn’t making the big chunk of change – they’d find someone else on the list to humiliate.
This morning while leafing through one of those Hollyweird gossip rags, I took note of all the highlighted flaws being exposed for all to see – as if WE should care.
Everything from a little extra fat around the navel – to oily skin, to pimples, to sweat marks beneath your teets after a workout, to dimples on your dairy-air (yes, I know it’s misspelled); to bald spots, spider veins and so on.
Then I came across a picture of gap-in-front-teeth 50 year old Madonna, whaling away on stage. Her right arm is up and guess what you could see without a microscope?
Vein on the top of her hand, on her forearm, on her biceps, her triceps – EVEN on her shoulders (front deltoid to be specific).
Now, for a show of hands, how many think these veins are from:
b. Drinking Kabbalah water
c. Having two children
d. Getting divorced
e. Eating vegan, vegetarian, fruitarian or something else
g. None of the above
h. ALL of the above
Make a note: The veins I saw in Madonna’s shoulders were almost an exact replica of veins I saw a few years back on Sly Stallone.
Now, did Sly ever take ‘roids?
And what about all those pro rasslers, all those movie stars, the models gone nasty, the rock stars and yes, even some politicians.
They are just as guilty, if not more so, than A-Rod.
Why not some REAL reporting, for a change?
Why not report on the martial artists who can do things way beyond knocking a ball out of a park – and do so without ‘roids?
Why not report on the people who are doing well?
Truth: Americans are addicted to something far bigger and far more harmful than any steroid ever created.
Americans are addicted to the news.
They turn on the tube each and every day and inject themselves with mega doses of distracting information that has nothing to do with the price of rice in China.
And once they’ve taken their first injection, they sit listlessly on the couch, watching more and more.
Depressed, saddened, frightened, worried and despondent from the drug they refuse to unplug.
So don’t tell me about A-Rod using A-Roids six years ago. I don’t care.
Tell me how YOU unplugged yourself from the idiot box, got off the couch and began getting your body into incredible shape.
Tell me how you eliminated the depression, the chronic fatigue, the grief, the sadness, the fear and the anger.
Tell me how you were able to “unwind your mind” for the first time in many years by following my Dao Zou program.
Tell me how you eliminated carpal tunnel syndrome pain with my Carpal Tunnel Fix program.
Or tell me, as a father of nine did two days ago, that he and his family do Combat Conditioning together. Tell me how the family who trains together gets stronger together and stays together.
Stop whining about A-Rod and start taking care of number one – YOU.
