Over the offseason, a few players on the LA Kings headed on over to Dodger Stadium to partake in a little batting practice. From the looks of it, they seem good enough to earn themselves a contract within the New York Mets organization. And while the boys were crushing dingers, turning two, and shagging fly balls, Mark McGwire had this to say.
“I think hockey players are the best athletes on the earth. I just admire them so much”. Coming from a guy who literally ate steroids for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This guy–whose body composition is roughly 69% HGH–thinks that hockey players are the greatest athletes in the world. 583 career home runs. 1,414 career RBIs. And he basically just said that hockey players could have put up those numbers as easily as NFL players get away with murder. Who am I to argue with Mark McGwire? Who is anybody to argue with Mark McGwire? If he says hockey players are the best athletes in the world, then hockey players are the best athletes in the world. Case. Closed.
They also have the best smiles as well. Christ, Jeff. Clean it up.
