Mark McGwire Admits Most Obvious Thing Ever

1/11/2010 5:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark McGwire Admits Most Obvious Thing EverMark McGwire is finally confessing ... he used steroids. Duh.

In a carefully written, blame-shifting statement, McGwire said, "I wish I had never touched steroids ... It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era."

McGwire said he took steroids during the 1998 season when he hit 70 home runs, then a record.

Your move, Bonds.

He didn't lie, he just refused to answer any questions. What else did you expect. These guys like McGwire and Bonds don't want their records taken away so they avoid questions and lie that they don't take the stuff. If we are to make examples out of them, we better look at each team and I'm sure there will be at least two to three players that can be scrutinized.

there is no steroid era..dont you think the old timers were bending the rules too..every generation has its crutch that they use to cheat with..in the 50's it was weed.60's it was acid.70's it was coke,80's it was crack..what goes around comes around..

Your characterization was lousy...No, "blame shifting" and didn't perceive the letter as "carefully written." Actually, it seemed quite contrary. A hurried flooding of emotion and to me he seemed to go out of the way to fess up BIG TIME compared to some of the other steroid "apologies (see AROD). He said he used them for over a decade. That's huge. Stop trying to always stoke the fire and just report a story...oh nevermind, you don't just report.

Like we didn't know that for over a dozen years? Take all his awards back and wipe his name from the record book.

Who cares? No one gives a hoot about him anymore, not because he did steroids but because everyone knew he was a liar. Wonder if he has kids, what an example for them if he does.

Next we'll be hearing the Jersey Shore guy saying they have never done roids. Yeah right.

Every one of these so-called stars shoud have their records erased from the books and the original records should be reinstated as still being unbeaten. If you do not play by the rules you should be taken out of the game!!

So what about the others. Everyone has banished Jose Conseco because he told what he and others were doing and idiots make out like Mark, Barry and Roger Clemens are heroes!

I have never commented on the TMZ site before, but this needs to be said. Mark McGwire owes me a personal apology. My sitcom Costello was to premier in 1998, after weeks of full on press, only to be pre- empted by Mr McGwire hitting his 62nd home run. Drug addicts ruin lives :) Just sayin............

Love the Lawyer    

Now gather up all the other steroid-using clowns that testified in from of congress that they did not us them. I watched those hearings...they all flat out denied using steroids.

LIAR LIAR LIAR

Conseco is starting to look a lot more credible now isn't he!
