Mike Gimbel formerly of Powered By Me an organization dedicated to keeping athletes clean and off drugs joined Ed & Steve to talk about Alex Rodriguez’s anti-drug pledge from years ago.
Mike’s organization held an event for children and A-rod gave an impassioned speech about staying away from PEDs and signed a pledge that he obviously did not live up to.
Mike found a copy of the pledge signed by A-Rod and he sent it to the New York Post and the Post made it a front page story. New York fans have grabbed this story and ran with it.
Mike talked about this being the reason it is risky to use professional athletes in these kinds of programs. He doesn’t like having to go back and tell the young kids over and over that the guy just made a mistake.
