Al Kaline, Mr. Tiger’s Thoughts On Substance Abuse and Hall of Fame
Just thought this went with my post from yesterday and wanted to pass it onto you.
I greatly respect Al Kaline as a person and as the ball player he was back in his day 🙂 As a young kid, I even would attempt to grab #6 uniform number in any sports I played 🙂
Anyways, enjoy and goodnight all
I have been asked my thoughts on all this substance abuse by athletes and I really don’t feel like giving it any more attention than it’s already been given. I really have nothing to say regarding steroids and all that…
The Creator’s already made someone pretty amazing…
Let the natural ability, strength and endurance God’s already given you and let that be your performance enhancer. Be thankful He’s blessed you with athletic ability and use it to play whatever sport it is you enjoy (whether it be professional or recreational)! Even if you’re actually not too athletic yet have somehow found yourself established in professional sports or else on your way to a career in sports-go with it! You’re there for a reason because He intended you to be there.
Now I cannot claim this as truth but I’m going to say it anyways:
Not one professional athlete has made the decision to enhance their performance with drugs as a result of a love for their sport.
So why would they chose to? Well, it happens when those things (money, fame, etc) in life they want become their reason for playing. You take your eye off the ball, you lose sight of what’s important and you will drop the ball.
Watch the ball into your glove and remember how truly blessed you are to be (professionally) playing what you love as a career.
There, that’s all I have to say on that, a quick 1-2-3 inning 🙂
