Charlie Sheen will be serving a 50-game suspension at some point in the near future. That’s right, the star of the hit move Major League recently admitted to using steroids in an interview with Sports Illustrated. It looks like the Wild Thing was a cheater. Sheen has let us down. We have all been deceived.
All joking aside, it cracks me up when people get upset about actors using steroids. When it was revealed a while back that Sylvester Stallone used steroids before filming Rocky Balboa (what a shocker!) there were actually people who felt as though they had been deceived. Here’s what Sheen told SI during his revelation:
“I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars,” he said. “I’ve got enough of that already. Add that to the mix and it’s a recipe for a fistfight. I was already bitchy because—let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f—. My fastball went from 79 to like 85.”
Good for you, Chuck. Six mph on camera will make your fastball look like it’s going from 30 mph to faster than the speed of light. Plus, we’re talking about a game here, not practice. Based on Charlie’s history, steroids are probably the most healthy substance he’s put into his body over the past 30 years. Anything for Bob Uecker! Chest bump to The Big Lead for the story.Google+
