Wake Up With All 66 Of Sammy Sosa's Home Runs In 1998

So I guess we're getting a 30 For 30 on the Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa home run chase in 1998 and if thats true then it's one of the best things I've heard in a while. Trying to describe what this was like is almost impossible. Everyday you'd run home from playing outside to see if/how many home runs McGwire and Sosa hit. It was literally like they'd both hit at least 1 a day. Sosa would take the lead, then McGwire would jump back ahead. Obviously McGwire would end up on top by hitting 70, but Sosa wasn't too far behind with his 66. After Cal and 2,131, the home run race really helped bring fans back to baseball. Maybe it was the alleged steroid use, but holy shit I've never had more fun watching guys blast baseballs. If this 30 For 30 is done right it will be so awesome, now we just have to get Big Mac to talk about it and hopefully Sammy cooperates too. Enjoy all 66 of Sammy's dongs from that summer.
