Barry Bonds Steriods
Bonds -- who faces 11 felony counts of perjury and obstruction of justice for his testimony during a 2003 MLB steroid investigation -- has been ordered to appear in federal court in San Francisco on March 21, 2011.

Is he going to be tried for lying to Congress? He needs to employ the Bill Clinton defense. Tell them to begin his trial as soon as the former President's trial for lying about Lewinsky concludes.

that courtroom had better have a high ceiling if they are planning on having Barry fit his gigantic waterlogged head in there.

Its only baseball. "A GAME". whats the big deal? People act like its big news that celebrities in the ENTERTAINMENT industry use drugs. And thats what baseball is, ENTERTAINMENT. Furthermore, what kind of America do we live in when your life can be ruined and possibly thrown in jail for taking a substance that didnt hurt anybody but yourself. Freedom is grand,... isnt it?!. This is like spending millions of dollars to investigate the rampant use of fluffers in the porn industry. You cant put an *** on that.
