Fuck Barry Bonds

I just read an article about Barry Bonds. In it are the following quotes:

"My life is in shambles. It is crazy," Bonds said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. "It couldn't get any crazier. I'm just trying to stay sane."

"No, I don't forget [what is said]. I will never forget. I forgive you but I don't forget. I forgive everybody."

First of all, Barry, you brought this on yourself when you got on the roids. You already had a Hall of Fame career. You had the spot in Cooperstown. You had your name up there with the best of the best. And then, because your body was slowing down (as it does with most athletes at the age of 36,) and because you were jealous of the other roid-monkeys Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, you jumped on the juice to get yourself back in the spotlight. I said it 5 years ago when he broke the homerrun record by hitting 73, and I'll say it again: No one puts on that much muscle at the age of 36 in that short a time. No one who has averaged 33 homers a season for the first 15 years of his career will suddenly hit 73. You juiced, everyone knows it, just be a man and take your punishment, you jerk.

Secondly, what the fuck are you forgiving people for? You forgive people for telling the truth? You forgive people for telling what you won't? He is suing the writers and publishers of a new book that goes into specifics on his juicing, but he isn't suing them for libel. He's suing them for using illegally obtained information. He doesn't dispute the truth of anything in the book. He's just pissed that people found out.

I've said it many times, and I'm sure I'll say it many more: Fuck Barry Bonds. Fuck him right in his stupid, juiced-up ass.
