Viva El Birdos: Where Cardinals Fans React To McGwire's Admission

While Mark McGwire came up with the Oakland A's, he is best remembered for his time with the Cardinals. It was in St. Louis that he had some of his best years, particularly in 1998, when he and Sammy Sosa battled for the home run title and brought an excitement back to baseball that the sport had not seen in years. Heck, he's still an employee now, having been brought back as the team's hitting instructor this offseason. Which is what makes today's steroids admission so difficult for Cardinals fans. Fortunately, SB Nation's Viva El Birdos has a post where you can go to express your feelings. The comments section: it's 2010's support group, people. 

It's pretty clear they still love the big guy.

And he still loves St. Louis, too. 

"I'm grateful to the Cardinals for bringing me back to baseball ... I can't wait to put the uniform on again and to be back on the field in front of the great fans in Saint Louis. I've always appreciated their support and I intend to earn it again, this time as hitting coach. I'm going to pour myself into this job and do everything I can to help the Cardinals hitters become the best players for years to come."
