Manny’s A Man

Manny took performance enhancing drugs.

As I re-read that sentence I just wrote, it’s almost oxymoronic.

Manny — the natural — took a steroid?

To me, that’s like saying Larry Bird took a steroid.

Manny and Larry are equally important to Boston sports, and they’re equally unsuspicious.

It’s truly unbelievable. And yet, I believe it. There’s hardly any room for doubt.

Here’s what we must remember: professional athletes are human beings, and as such, they are mirrors of ourselves.
We can judge them for their actions, but were we in the same situation,
many of us would behave the same way. Am I defending Manny and other
cheaters? No. But I am saying, “There but by the grace of God go I.” And I’m also saying, I’m not going to stop loving Manny just because he’s so…. human.

Manny’s “drug of choice” was an interesting one. The Fox announcers on Saturday had an interesting take on it. They said they were not surprised that Manny used a banned substance. They felt this was another example of “Manny being Manny” and of Manny feeling that he only had to plat by his rules and not by the rules of a team or of baseball. They cited his problems he had with the Red Sox before he was traded – refusing to play, faking injuries….I think they might be on to something. The saddest part? How many of us weren’t overly shocked to hear this news?
