Bonds and the homerun record
I just learned this morning that Bonds broke the homerun record last night. Of course the record is tainted as there is constant suspicion of steroid and other performance enhancing drugs being used by Bonds. But if it was as simple as take some steroids and then you get the record or even you can hit a homerun than there should be a lot more people out there with a lot more homeruns as I believe that Bonds was not the only baseball player who used performance enhancing drugs. Also, if I took performance enhancing drugs I still could not hit a baseball as I have no hand-eye coordination, so just because he is bigger does not mean that he can hit a little ball. I still would like to see another person get the record so that Bonds is not at the top of the list as I do believe that he used steroids, but since we cannot erase the past and we do not know which homeruns he would not have hit if he had not taken drugs, than for right now I will say congratulations to Mr. Bonds and we have to move on as sports fans. The ironic thing about me making this post is that baseball is my least favorite sport of the major four (baseball, basketball, football and hockey) and yet if I turn on ESPN or ESPN2 it is all they are talking about so I had to post my thoughts on it too.
