First off, I am not a huge fan of Barry Bonds. I can’t respect the fact that he felt the need to resort to alternative methods to enhance his game. As a ball player, it was his responsibility to maintain a high level of professionalism and honesty. His choice has only served to tarnish the beloved national past time.
On the other hand, I find it irritating that congress is targeting major league players over steriod and drug usage. Why don’t they focus on more important matters, like ending this illegal war on terror, or better yet, the war on drugs? I feel it is up to Major League Baseball, as a private corporation, to deal with their own dirt. Instead, congress felt the need to assemble this circus of events and harass private citizens.
Please, do not misunderstand me. I am not defending the actions of Barry Bonds, but instead, I am pointing out the major issue of the entire investigation. I’ll leave it at that for now.
