Just this once, I'll talk about Bonds

I've already spent too much time and energy on the whole Barry Bonds record-breaking home run in the months leading into it, so if you really need my opinion for guidance, feel free to browse the archives.

I'll say one thing in closing, however after someone brought up a good point on sports radio this week.

Assuming that Bonds took steroids (yeah, yeah... allegedly) and did so for their ability to help athletes recover more quickly from injury - especially with an aging body - what's the difference between Bonds and Brett Favre who is on record regarding his addiction to painkillers?

When classified as a "performance enhancer" painkillers and steroids taken to allow athletes to stay on the field and off the DL or trainer's table are pretty much one in the same.

So why is Favre seen as a hero and Bonds as a cancer in his sport?

I'm still working on that one.
