Once again, Jose Canseco is right...

Once again, Jose Canseco has made Major League Baseball and the rest of the world look like idiots after the media found out of Alex Rodriguez's failed drug test back in 2003. Canseco supposedly had "other stuff" on Rodriguez in a sequel to the book "Juiced," which brought steroids in baseball to a forefront.

Many (including myself) thought at the time, "Yeah right, why wouldn't he have dropped the ball on Rodriguez in the first one? Canseco is full of ****!" Perhaps he was trying to protect a friend? Who knows but the fact of the matter is is that Canseco was right.

Canseco is looking smarter and smarter by the minute right but we still all love to hate him. But why? Is it because we want to remain naive that our favorite players and heroes have good-hearts people and don't cheat?

I am like many others in which I cannot stand the talk of steroids and wished that it had never came up. But the fact of the matter is that everyone thought about it in the back of their minds and Canseco was one of the only people with the cojones big enough to do something about it. We all wanted to stay naive, but we all knew it wasn't right.

I still think Canseco is an egotistical jack***, but I cannot say that I don't like the guy for what he's done. If it wasn't him, I am sure it would have been someone else. We all love to hate Canseco, but the fact of the matter is that he is making all of us looking like fools for not believing in him.

Seriously? This guy is making us look like fools? Sad, but true.
