It was a mistake on my part. It was very bad judgment and I've been regretting it ever since... I just want to apologize to everyone I've disappointed... I don't want to come off as a wrong person and to be labeled a cheater. It wasn't like that at all. I deeply regret what I did.

"I think it's irresponsible to put something in your body and not consult with your trainers. You can't take that lightly as a player"
"This kid #Mejia probably didn't know about the medicine. I'm almost sure he doesn't speak English.

Maybe "Minstrel" in Spanish means "jellybean"?

Pro tip #2: Buy your sunblock and condoms before heading to the park.
Despite the giant sign there is no Walgreens here.
Late in the game a horrific plume of black smoke appeared in the distance.
Turned out it was a styrofoam factory on fire and no one was hurt,
unless you count the ozone layer, perhaps.
