Hold Legit Press Conference
ROOT FOR THE HOME TEAM? In St. Louis, Bryan Burwell writes it was "embarrassing nonsense" that Cardinals fans greeted McGwire with a "rousing, standing ovation in his first public appearance here since admitting he used a potent array of performance-enhancing drugs while becoming a celebrated home run king." By applauding McGwire, the Cardinals fans are implying that they are "no different from the Giants-Barry Bonds fans and the Dodgers-Manny Ramirez fans." These are the fans who "will provide McGwire, the Cardinals and Commissioner Bud Selig all the cover they think they need to continue getting away with the scam they are trying to perpetrate" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 1/19).
