Now Playing: pins and needles
I checked my email, as so many of you have, and find an email to join a sports blog. Seeing as how I am a broadcast sports journalist, I figure, why not give it a try. I'll throw out my opinion on the latest sports and see what happens. So, here it goes...
I, for one, am tired of hearing about steroids and Barry Bonds. What is he, guilty until found innocent? He has never failed a drug test. Not once! Bud Selig would not cover up for Bonds if Bonds failed one, so drop the whole conspiracy theory. The man has talent, pure and simple, and no one can deny that. Just because he is not "media friendly" does not mean that he should be crucified. Let him pass Ruth. Let him have his moment. The legacy of Ruth will survive if Ruth is number 3 all-time. After Hank passed Ruth, Ruth did not drop on the legendary list. This is a moment that we may not see for a very long time (unless Pujols stays healthy and keeps hitting the way he has, then it may be but a few years away). Let the man play, quit writing books just to make a quick buck, and, for certain, stop throwing needles at him (shame to San Diego). Sports needs legends and needs records to fall. Otherwise, no one would care about sports.
