He swung a mean bat, had deceptive speed, gave his all for the team, had probably the best mullet in baseball and always came through in the clutch. More than anything, though, it’s just that he’s so NORMAL. He looks like he worked at Cole Muffler down the road and is the guy drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon in the neighborhood bar. As he himself said, when admonished for being a professional athlete and yet smoking, “I ain’t an athlete, lady, I’m a baseball player.”
John Kruk is the latest name to be thrown around in the steroid saga and smartly denies ever using the performance enhancers. “Seriously? I mean really? Do you see what I look like? I am John Daly in a baseball uniform,” Kruk stated on a radio show in Philadelphia. The mullet man from the City of Brotherly Love is the newest addition to the steroid addition of major league baseball. Could you imagine Kruk on Roids? He would be SuperKruk with flowing locks a rock hard beer gut and the ability to be nimble enough to play in MLB.
And….Did I mention that mullet? Probably the best baseball mullet ever for my liking. Randy Johnson could also have a claim to that as well. His mullet would be the ballz with roids. His mulletude would surely have made a pitch for Cooperstown.
But, Krukmeister always has a word to say about the current state of the Union concerning steroids in baseball……….
But you can’t prove that they took anything! Just because you have ’em doesn’t mean you took ’em. Now, common sense tells you if you’re purchasing them you’re probably going to use ’em also, but — if there’s no drug test, no failed drug test, how can you suspend anyone by hearsay? I mean, that’s like arresting someone at 12 o’clock in the afternoon, saying, “About a week ago, you had a couple drinks and you were driving, so we’re going to arrest you now.” You can’t do it unless you prove it.
Good points Kruk…Oh well, we will just have to wait and see where the Man with the Mullet takes us next? Hopefully to Darren Daulton’s cookout next Saturday!
