Barry Bonds stands as one of the greatest baseballs players in professional baseball history. Many baseballs fans of our current era (2000's) feel threatened by the poignant and borderline superhuman sucesses of this baseball player in the context of his craft. This is due, in paramount, to his alleged use of performance enhancing drugs known as steroids. While steroids may have helped this baseball player play his game harder, faster, stronger and so-on, what many of his accusers perhaps fail to realize is that all of us, at some point in time in our professional careers, ingest some kind of substance in order to deal or cope with the stresses of our respective careers — or — even to enhance our performance.
It is, of course, a terrible hypocrisy, to chastise another human being simply due to the fact that s/he is in a more visible or finacially rewarding line of work. It is not even valid or justifiable that any of us deride his alleged actions whilst most of us drink coffee, alcohol, take headache medication, effervescent energy tablets, energy bars, cocaine, marijuana, Coca Cola, and so-on, in order to deal with the stresses of our day to day jobs, and in many instances, enhace our performance.
It should be remembered and considered, that there is, always has been, and always will be, a fine line between legal and illegal and our justifications for our own personal actions that pertain to these legal issues. Many defame Barry Bonds because his alleged steroid use was illegal. But every day we may violate the speed limit, we may drive home after a fun night with friends after 2 drinks, we may smoke a bit of marijuana, we may try to find ways to skate around federal taxes, we may roll through a stop sign as an 8-year-old child stands on the crosswalk curb to the right, and we may take a Valium before a stressful meeting in order to ease the nerves and close the sale. Or!... we may take it to enhance our performance!
Of course there will be some folks out there that profess they abstain from drugs like valium or caffeine, but they've certainly rolled through stop signs and the lot of other violations. For X sake! We're all humans here and evolution in and of itself should drive the justification for adapting to our current challenges. The message here is not necessarily to absolve the actions of Barry Bonds, but to dissolve the hypocritical accusations that we, the public, are better than the souls that entertain us by way of the television. Television sucks, people, I'll admit to that any day, but baseball is one of the last real things we'll find on television. Real players doing real things, real emotions, real time, etc. It's the other decay that's out there that we should be skeptical of.... the politics, the drama shows... the news... but not the game of baseball. This is a group of men that are simply pushing to outperform one another. They're not villains. If there's animosity toward cheating... why, then, let's turn our heads more vehemently to politics or media, by golly, and let's stop whipping those prodigies that entertain us.
One of the greatest baseball players of all-time is Barry Bonds.
-someone who cheated there way just so they can pass babe ruths record.
-someone who is a liar.
-someone who is a cheat.
-someone who is an azz.
An African American left fielder for the San Francisco Giants who has abnormally small testicles (size youth medium cup), a size 32 D bra, and a gigantic dome. Barry is an individual who didn't understand the consequences of shooting animal growth hormone into his glutinous and is currently suffering from a shriveled scrotum, limited room in his bra, a lot of room in his jock, excessive back-acne, a schizophrenic and unpredictable roid raging personality. Pedro Gomez of ESPN has divorced his wife, and left his kids so that he could follow this cheating, low-life, asshole.
Barry Bonds, the pussy left fielder for the San Francisco Giants, who cheated so that he could pass Hank Aaron's home run record, now pees from an organ called the vagina.
A punk ass who plays for the San Fransico Giants. He is considered one of the greatest home run hitters. It is all bull because the guy is on freaking steroids. This guy is a disgrace to baseball and everyone hates him.
Barry Bonds is a "cracka" on steroids.
A guy who used steroids to hit lots of home runs. This pissed off Babe Ruth, so he cursed him with injuries. But he can only do one curse at a time, and this allowed the Boston Red Sox to win the 2004 World Series. I contend he will be injured again and will not play another game.
Rafael Palmeiro is such a Barry Bonds.
A baseball player who is eternally hated on, even though he is not the reason for all the problems of the game of baseball. Let's face it. Baseball turned the other way on steroid use until the media got a hold of the story and created this huge witch hunt.
FACTS ABOUT STEROIDS -
STEROIDS CANNOT KILL YOU UNLESS YOU ABUSE THEM IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANOTHER DRUG.
STEROIDS WERE NOT ILLEGAL IN BASEBALL UNTIL 2003.
BARRY BONDS HAS PASSED EVERY DRUG TEST HE HAS EVER BEEN ADMINISTERED. EVERY SINGLE ONE.
Amphetamines, which are much more widespread than steroids in major league baseball, are more commonly known as "greenies". These "greenies" are not as nearly crucified as steroids are.
FACT ABOUT GREENIES - THEY ARE METH. METH MAKES YOU MUCH, MUCH STRONGER THAN STEROIDS EVER CAN. METH CAN KILL YOU.
Hate Barry Bonds all you want, but he is not the cause of cheating - he is the symptom of cheating in the game.
And for all you guys talking about how "sacred" the HR records are? Guess what:
FACT ABOUT BASEBALL - EIGHT OF THE TOP TEN CAREER HOME RUN LEADERS, INCLUDING "HEROES" LIKE BABE RUTH AND HANK AARON EITHER CHEATED OR BROKE THE LAW DURING THEIR PLAYING CAREER.
Seriously. Hank Aaron used greenies (remember, meth is MUCH worse than steroids for you), Bonds allegedly used steroids, Ruth corked his bat, Mays used liquified meth ("red juice"), Sosa corked his bat (and may have used steroids), Frank Robinson carried a concealed weapon, McGwire used andro, and Pa...
(n) another name for Steroids, HGH, or any other extreme muscle building substance
Bill: Man, have you seen Jake? He's gotten huge since last summer!
Tom: Yeah, he got on that Barry Bonds
-Douchebag. A Person who likes to wear jorts daily and cry while watching the notebook. Also the scum of baseball. Will likely die of a heart attack before the age of 50 due to the immense amount of stereoids he has ingested. Should be banned from the game of baseball immediately so he cannot tarnish the recorbooks with his cheating ways. Once approprietly pelted by styringes during a baseball game.
