I guess it's not very surprising that Barry Bonds has been indicted for perjury in the steroids case. It's one of those things, it seems, that is at the point where people have long since accepted that he did it, it's just a matter of whether you cared that he did or not.
I don't really care actually, everyone was doing it. I'm not sure how I feel about how special it was to see Bonds hit #754 with my daughter. I bet she'll remember it and now we'll have to talk about why he's a cheater (I'd be shocked if he got out of this without some form of an admission of guilt if not a guilty verdict, but believe me if OJ had a dream team, Barry is going to have an ecstatic, it's not possible was I actually just flying with a bunch of hot chicks type dream team).
I think to a certain extent it gives more credibility to what Mark Ecko did with the ball from #755.
One thing that I think is interesting to consider is when he's busted (and he will be busted) will his fall from grace be more significant than Ron Mexico (aka Michael Vick)? I think for some reason the public holds baseball with a higher degree of sanctity than football, look at how Pete Rose is a virtual outcast in many circles.
Then again to fall from grace, you have to be on some type of pedestal and it's been a long time since Barry's been there. Other than SF, people feel pretty negatively about him.
I'm sure he couldn't have done it but wouldn't it have been nice if he just would have admitted from the very beginning that he did?
Too late, sorry Barry, you may soon be trading in your orange and black uniform #25 for an orange uniform with a whole lot more numbers on it real soon.
