Ruined Ryan

The news about Ryan Braun broke during the PhilCast Monday afternoon.

Thanks for giving Milwaukee a black eye Ryan.

Now, not even 24 hours later as I write this, some of the main feedback from fans I am hearing and reading is that they could have lived with the doping but can not forgive the lying about it.

Really?

Doping is OK with you?

Doping, no matter the sport, sickens me. It sickens me because I personally know a few professional athletes, and I know they DO NOT dope. The dopers, the cheaters, the liars make them ALL look bad. Guilt by association. It's not fair to CLEAN athletes.

Warning fans; DO NOT put athletes up there too high on a pedestal. It's a long way down when they fall.
I know all about that trap. I myself did it with a certain cyclist named Lance Armstrong. Headed for Oprah Ryan?
