AP WRITERS: “STEROIDS TOP SPORTS STORY OF 2009”

It’s interesting to see that the Associated Press’s writers and editors named steroids the biggest sports story of 2009:

The revelations about A-Rod’s past ‘roid use, Manny’s suspension for having a prescription for HCG, and Big Papi and Sosa’s names leaked from the 2003 list all kept the story prominent.  I know for my part that it continues to taint my feelings about baseball.  Once again, a major sport or personality, in this case baseball, needs to be reminded that addressing a scandal head-on (see Letterman, David) is far better p.r. than trying to stonewall it and pretend it never happened (see Woods, Tiger).
