Well you knew it would happen sooner or later, unless of course his knees fell off or someone took a shot at his moon sized head, Barry Bonds hit his 756th career homer in front of the only 40,000 people in the world who care about it. The fans at AT&T Park seriously want to shove the overwhelming near certainty of cheating under the rug and cheer, admire, and recognize Bonds as MLB’s new home run king.
Thankfully, I and everyone else with a brain, am smart enough to understand that he clearly cheated. The symtoms have been said numerous times so there is no need to talk about his massive head, his giant body size over the last decade, his improved muscles after age 40, his new shoe size, his extreme allegations, Victor Conte, Jose Canseco and so forth. There is NO need to mention anything like that.
Take it for what it is and go ahead and respond with the obvious posts like:
“Show me the proof”, or “Let it go, he did it, move on”, or “Other players do it”, or “But he can recreate the moon landing on his dome”.
