Barry Bonds exposed?

The number of times an athlete is on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine is a measure of ones stature on the sports scene. Pete Rose would brag about being on the SI cover more than any other baseball player. My guess is Barry Bonds would rather have one less cover to his credit than see this one.



The cover accompanies a very unflattering article which details how Bonds bulked up after seeing the attention showered on Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa during their chase of Roger Maris' home run record. There is no way of knowing how much of this story is true, but the damage is already done. The allegations in the article fit everyone's perception of Bonds. The sad thing is he didn't need to bulk up. He was already a great player with 3 MVP awards to his credit. He would have easily gone into the Hall of Fame with a solid reputation for combining speed and power like no one before him.

Re the Barry Bonds story, I'm sick of SI's hypocrisy. They lament the fall of the sports hero like's its some kind of new phenomenon. I take SI writer Phil Taylor to task in my blog essay, read it at http://mymountain.blogspot.com/2006/03/si-lament-there-are-no-more-heros.html

Being a loyal Pirate fan, I've hated him since he took the money and ran back in 1990.......

Skippy-San,

I hear you. People forget past transgressions too quickly. It is important as sports fans to maintain grudges. I don't have a lot of future plans, but my main goal in life is to piss on Art Modell's grave. Unfortunately, he isn't in it yet.
