Lady Gaga attended the New York Mets game where they beat the San Diego Padres. 

She appeared to be upset at the paparazzi (Ironic, eh) taking her photo and gave them the finger.  But a few innings later, Gaga used it to her advantage making out with a girl and playing up tho the cameras.

It's interesting.  It's not like Gaga was incognito.  I don't know too many people who wear what she wore to a baseball game.  I think the next time I go to a Dodger game, I am gonna have my date wear that and see if we can even get in the gates. 

Would you wear that to a sporting event?-Dr.FB

Breaking News: Mark McGwire Admits To Steroid Use

Mark McGwire told the Associated Press today that he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998. He also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"I wish I had never touched steroids," McGwire said in a statement. "It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era."

McGwire decided to come clean as part of his return to Major League Baseball as a hitting coach for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are managed by Tony LaRussa who was one of McGwire's biggest supporters when he played under him in Oakland and later in St. Louis, where McGwire finished out his playing days in 2001.

McGwire is the second major baseball star in less than a year to admit using illegal steroids, following the New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez last February. And let's not forget Jose Canseco's battle with the steroid demons and his admission. Looks like Jose was ahead of the curve on this trend.

Would McGwire have been able to hit those record-setting 70 home runs in a season without the steroids? McGwire said, "I had good years when I didn't take any, and I had bad years when I didn't take any. I had good years when I took steroids, and I had bad years when I took steroids. But no matter what, I shouldn't have done it and for that I'm truly sorry."

McGwire had a chance to come clean in 2005 when he was questioned by a Congressional committee about steroid use. At the time, he repeatedly said "I'm not here to talk about the past" when asked whether he took illegal steroids in 1998 or at any other time.

As a sports fan, this kind of news is always disappointing. What records are "real" anymore?

McGwire says ""Baseball is really different now — it's been cleaned up." What do you guys think? Is "the steroid era" really over? - Dr.FB

Report: Danny Gans Died Accidentally

Danny Gans death last month has now been ruled an accidental overdose caused by a prescription pain killer. The coroner says he died from toxic levels of hydromorphone, which is in the prescription drug dilaudid and he was using it to heal chronic pain.

It is now revealed Danny had heart disease which was caused by high blood pressure.  Making the heart work overtime was also Gans suffering from polycythemia, which is the opposite of say someone being anemic, where his body was producing too many red blood cells.

He took the medicine for a while it seems as he had two shoulder surgeries while playing baseball back in the day and he used the medicine for that.

This story is a sad one and I hope his family found the answers that they needed so they can be in peace.-Dr.FB

In a new interview with ESPN, Alex Rodriguez has admitted to the use of performance enhancing drugs when he played with the Texas Rangers between 2001-2003. He told Peter Gammons:

"When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure.  I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me, and I needed to perform -- and perform at a high level -- every day.

Back then, it was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naïve. I wanted to prove to everyone that I was worth being one of the greatest players of all-time. I did take a banned substance, and for that I'm very sorry. I'm deeply regretful."
