Mac Wrap

Recently McDonalds has reinvented and repackaged, in a sense, the Big Mac. The Mac Snack Wrap is basically a Big Mac, but spurns the sesame seed bun for a flour tortilla.

Recently the other famous Big Mac, Mark McGwire, admitted to using steroids, in a conscience cleaning effort to reinvent public perception of him. (You like how I tied that in? Sweet huh?)

If you took steroids in the past, come clean with it. No further proof is necessary than a case study of Mark McGwire and public perception. This guy was getting absolutely blasted in the media because of his testimony, and now the first thing that people say when talking about him is, "I'm glad he did it."

And really what did he have to lose?

Another thing is, I think something that gets overlooked in all of this are his chances for the Hall of Fame.

I think it would require the turnover of a LOT of Hall of Fame voters to get Mark McGwire into the Hall of Fame. Before, he had no chance. Now, at least if they do end up relaxing their stance on steroid users, Mark McGwire will be one of the first considered in.

I really hope the rest who used steroids take Mark McGwire's lead so we can all get past this. The statute of limitations for steroids use is supposedly 5-years. I guess that's a uniform time from state to state. As soon as it's safe, holler.

Wake up

As you can tell, I took a break from my blog.

Even though I was only posting a couple of times a week, I was burnt out. I wanted to write solid pieces with factual and/or statistical backing, if possible. This was harder to keep up than I realized, as many times I would write something and then toss it because I realized I said it before or I couldn't really back it with anything. Other times I realized I was rambling and lost my point.

I recently got reinspired to get my blog going again. I used to track to see how often someone went on the site, but I don't really think I'll find that to be as important anymore.

Anyway, I'm going to try a different approach. I'm going to post more frequently but also write less lengthy posts. We'll see how it comes out.

If you stopped reading, I hope you'll come back. If you didn't stop checking, thank you. I hope to reward your patience.
