If you mean Barry Bonds....he can take his steroid ridden butt far away. I hope they strip every record he makes.

who cares, it's sport/spectacle. Babe Ruth did it on alcohol, hot dogs and cigars, maybe they should take his records away too.

Yet another over-simplification from Raynda on something he isn't interested about.

Listen bonds clearly used steroids, look at the pictures before and after. Is he the greatest hitter of all time? It's hard to deny his talent at making solid contact. Is he a cheater? I don't really know, pitchers are likely just as guilty as batters. You know why i really don't care about this? Barry Bonds is the biggest ass hole in professional sports...he has brought this on himself.

Steroids are illegal in the US.

My sentiments were aptly summed up by an acquaintance of mine after being offered free tickets to an Orioles game a few years ago:

Baseball?....<slightly lowers left hand, like it's one side of a scale>

Death? ... <right hand>

Death? ... <right hand>

Baseball? ...<left hand>

<longer pause>

I'll go with Death.

Oooooooooo I'm with ya on the procrastination thing.

When someone I love is broken and I can't fix it.

Witnessing betrayal.

People who lie.

Those who hurt others because they themselves are unhappy.

Being in the position of helplessness when seeing others suffer.

Oh. And having to fix Jon's bike on every ride we went on.
But you are a fan of Bonds? Interesting.

I am interested in baseball, but I think the overemphasis on the drug thing is out of control. it's spectacle and entertainment, let them do what they want, they aren't hurting anyone but themselves

sounds like more people have a problem with barry's personality than with his drug use actually. well no one like ty cobb much either, but it didn't mean he wasn't a good ball player

For some...most, i'd say...the entertainment is a result of the fact that these people have natural ability that is freakish. When that natural ability becomes un-natural, for many, the entertainment is lost.

I'm curious-do you feel the same way about the TDF? Also, would you feel the same way if your hs age son told you he wanted to take steroids because, afterall, it worked for Barry?

1. TdF, meh, who cares? Lance and Floyd both used drugs btw.

2. my son is smarter than that actually, but he's all grown up and he can make his own decisions now

Not really. I'm a fan of SAN FRANCISCO!!! And the Giants, of course, are from my hometown!! (Heck, I can't even name anyone else on the team...) That is why you guys slamming him doesn't effect me! Woo Hooo!!

Oh by the way...is he still taking drugs and still hitting big? (Not sarcastic, I really don't follow sports or this whole drug thing.)

We were down there this weekend Sui. Caught the A's-Angels game on Saturday and then went out to dinner at A16 with my GF's college room mate and her bf for her B-day. Ate a ton of food, drank a lot of wine. Went to Mojito's after for some more partying....had quite the weekend.

The fact that someone with as much class as Hank Aaron refused to show up at the game to acknowledge and respect this record breaking event speaks volumes.

There was, but he said all along that he had zero interest in being there.

BTW, is it just me or was the celebration somewhat subdued? I expected.....more.
