Pardon My Biogenesis Bender

You have probably checked this blog every 30 seconds for the past 4 days waiting for ‘The Commish’, who’s a HUGE Brewers fan, make his public statement about the Biogenesis news that broke on Monday. Well, after a very heavy and long bender (and several nights of tears), my comments on Monday’s announcement will have to wait another few days (once I sober up or stop sobbing)…

Just kidding. I’m not under a gag order like Braun is.
You know my original stance of the Braun debacle, if not you can find it here, or here, or here. But I’m not the only person that was duped, Braun’s teammates were, Aaron Rodgers lost a $4.5 Million bet, heck, most of Wisconsin was under the same spell.

I can honestly say, after 6 years, I now know how Giants fans feel. How they feel about Barry Bonds… a loved hometown hero, a villain to other fans.

But what I will ask is that baseball fans, the media, analysts, Joe Schmo stop trying to hang Braun. Stop walking around with matches looking to burn him at the stake. I’m not saying he’s innocent. I’m not saying you have to forgive him. What I want is for humans to admit that no one is perfect. Not even you. Understand that he made a mistake, understand that he has to live with the mistake. You don’t see Braun yelling for your head because you were doing 75mph in a 55mph (cheating the system?). You don’t see Braun asking for your paycheck or your job because you only clocked 6 hours today at your white collar job (cheating the system?). You don’t see Braun asking for your ‘Dad of the year’ award because you created 50000 fake email addresses to help vote for your entry (cheating the system?). You know you have made mistakes in your life, and you learn from them, so hopefully Braun does too.

After all of this, you would think his teammates would have the most anger towards Braun since they defended him… but they don’t. They seem to be in the same boat as me. Braun made a mistake, Braun has to live with it, Braun has a large hill to climb next season to prove he’s still an elite player.

Personally, I can’t wait until Braun’s gag order is lifted. Because I’m waiting to here what on this list Braun is guilty of. I’m hoping for either something in the Drug Abuse list or something that is in the Stimulants list (like Adderall aka amphetamines). Just saying, he isn’t technically guilty of HGH or Roids… yet.
