Barry Bonds loses...

We went to see the Braves beat the Giants last night and that's what happened. Whenever Barry got to bat, some people screamed "Cheat-er!" or "Ster-oids!" or just booed. Others (like Amy and I) didn't react to Barry's appearance in Atlanta and others gave standing ovations whenever he stood at the plate.

There was a sign hanging from The Chop House that showed "758*" and there were people that were holding up asterisks and even wearing asterisks on their shirts. The asterisk, of course, indicate that the record over hometown hero Hank Aaron is tainted.

Wouldn't it be great if MLB (and the NBA, NFL, and NHL) would just kick somebody off their team for doping, like Rasmussen's team did in the Tour de France? Yeah, right, like that would ever happen. Apparently, it's "ok" in major league sports to dope, but sports like cycling suffer because they (teams and professional organizations) are trying to do the right thing, despite the negative press.
