Washington: I also used …

Ron Washington

A day after acknowledging he failed a drug test for cocaine last year, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington gave a long rambling press conference in which he says he used marijuana and amphetamines while he was a player, he added “that was just the tip of the iceberg”. He then described other “youthful errors”, among them:
-Having a marijuana garden in the bullpen of the Minnesota Twins.

-Building and using a meth lab in the visitors clubhouse, also in Minnesota

-Maintaining a poppy farm in Baltimore while playing for the Orioles

-Inventing something called a “Meth-wich”, which was a methamphetamine infused “sloppy joe” sandwich.

-Asked teammates to call him Cocaine-icus after the “Roman god of getting high”

-Had a custom made bat with a sword concealed in it, “for protection”

Washington says his mistakes from years ago have nothing to do with the issue he’s facing now, and he doesn’t think it will be a long term distraction for the Rangers.

    Texas GM Nolan Ryan should hog-collar Ron Washington and pummel him about the face and neck, the way he did to a youthful Robin Ventura.

    I heard that Amos Otis used to soak his glove in Testors model glue and huff it during games.
    Do you know if this is true?
    And I also heard that Tug McGraw and Jerry Grote used to pass hits of DMT to each other during pitchers mound meetings. If this is true, Doc Ellis was a fuckin’ pussy.

    GO Mets!

    Yes, both stories are true. they came from the book “DARK TRUTHS ABOUT THE METS” by Isaac Asimov. Other startling facts; Felix Milan was really 3 bound midgets wedged into a uniform. Lenny Dykstra’s blood is an explosive and his eyes are made entirely of cocaine. John Milner was legally married to a chicken
