A-Rod admits steroid use

Obviously this on the front page of our sports section, which you can check out here.

Alex Rodriguez admitted to ESPN's Peter Gammons (there's video of the interview on the link) that he did indeed take steroids in the year in question.

In the interview, he still manages to deflect some of the responsibility, saying it was part of the culture at that time. He also said he didn't know exactly what he was taking, which is total, well, I can't write what it is. But if you're telling me that someone like A-Rod who is borderline obsessive compulsive about his body and appearance would just inject a random substance into himself without knowing exactly what it will do is ridiculous.
