Signs, signs, everywhere the signs
Juicin' up my gluteus, losin' my mind
Go clean, don't do roids, can't you read the signs?

I liked what they said last night during the game about how if Bonds did use them, somewhere near 70% of the players did as well, pitchers included. We'll never know the true numbers, but don't try to tell me with a straight face that if he used them, he was the only person.

Go Barry!

Booing and heckling are more than he deserves. They give an oppositional credibility. Seated stoney silence is what should greet that vain lab rat every time he shows his swollen noggin.

Everyone in the park should watch out, I understand that roid rage is going to replace "doing a farkload of coke and freaking out" as celebrity reasons for killing their family.

He could have either beat the record or come damn close without the steroids.

Just sad.

So, you're saying that using steriods is okay, because everyone else is doing it?

Whatever. He's a cheat and 'roid junkie or not, he's still an asshole. I have a hard time cheering for assholes.

No, he's saying that he shouldn't be as punished for it as he is. I'm ok with giving the whole 90s-present an asterisk in the books, but Barry doesn't deserve it alone.

He might be an asshole, but he's a damn good baseball player too.

It would never happen, but I would be so happy if every pitcher just refused to pitch to him or just beaned him.

Seriously. How hard is it to figure out you bring in a marker and this sign:

Then fill in "FARK YOURSELF" in the middle?

QFT

I hate seeing him break this record as well, not so much that he's a pumped up 'roid freak, but more for the fact that he's completely self-centered, doesn't give a rats ass about the fans and is just an all around class A asshole.

I forget where I read this (i.e. too lazy to look it up), but he once said about the subject of donating to the Hall of Fame that he didn't care about the Hall, that it did nothing for him...that he played the game for himself.

Dick.

halfof33: ///I bet he takes a few days off so he can hit his homer at home.

I've been saying this all year. Once he gets to around 753 I guaran-damn-tee you he's going to start having "muscle soreness" or "back spasms" or whatever every time the Giants go on the road, which will mysteriously disappear as soon as he gets back to SF. Bonds isn't stupid; of course he's going to want to break the record in the one park in America where the fans are deluded enough to still cheer for him.

It's amazing how many stupid people appear when it's a bond thread - ahwahoo is the winner, farking snob u dipwad.
 
2007-07-11 01:11:03 PM
One of the reasons he is an ass is because hes a liar, just like Palmeiro and McGwire and Sheffeld. At least Giambi looks like he wants to tell the truth.
The record is tainted plain and simple.

/dont like Dykstra or Luis Gonzo or Brett Boone or Brady Anderson or the Giles brothers or Bagwell or Dutch Daulton or...etc, etc,etc

He's been a little sketchy about the whole steroid issue, but otherwise Sheffield is the most honest player in all of baseball. Seriously. There's no image he tries to project about himself.

They guy will not pull a punch in an interview, and will perfectly admit he's basically a jerk.

Yeah and let's restart Roger Clemens with 0 wins too.

I swear the absolute stupidity of you people never ceases to amaze me. If you don't like Barry Bonds then you're an absolute moron.

I remember I went to a Giants game when they went against the Rockies. I got a nice "You Do Steroids" chant going on behind the batter's box. Sadly, the telecast of the game censored it out.

Oh, definitely. Not even owing to the fact that his balls have probably shrunken due to the 'roid use, Barry Bonds DEFINITELY does not have the balls to swing for the record-tying or record-breaking home run on the road. Not a chance in Hell.
 
2007-07-11 02:03:52 PM
There is one simple thing true Baseball fans can do when he ties or breaks the record.

THROW THE BALL BACK

In reality that ball won't fetch nearly that much, you'll be bulldogged into 'donating' it to cooperstown instead of auctioning it, and if you toss it back you can get paid TV appearances.


So lets all do the right thing and if you are in center left field you THROW THE BALL BACK
 
2007-07-11 02:08:23 PM
I honestly don't know how Bonds gets so "banged up" all the time.

Sure, he's old, but what does he do on a daily basis? Swing a bat a few dozen times? Jog out to the outfield and back and proceed to stand there for most innings?

shiat, most 105 year olds could do the same thing if you promised them that there was going to be slot machines involved.

If you think there would be even half this much "outrage" if say, Jason Giambi were the one about to break the record, think again.

All of this never-ending, intensely focused hatred towards Bonds has made him to many something he could never have accomplished shed himself: Sympathetic
 
2007-07-11 02:28:06 PM
I was a second grader, before a day game back at Three Rivers Stadium sometime when * looked more like a skinny, well, Sammy Sosa. Anyways, I was at the player's entrance with my mother and a dozen or so other fans, young and old alike. Buccos were coming into the stadium every few minutes and signing a ball, hat, etc. here and there on their way though the parking lot to the door, where I patiently waited.
Well, here comes *, years before he became baseball god. And what does he do? Pushes me. He farking pushed me away without even making eye contact with me.
Don't get me wrong. People are entitled to a private life. That sheet every day just walking into the office would become old.

But nobody held a gun to his head, either. Why treat the fans, who indirectly pay your salary, like sheet ALL THE TIME? (being from Pittsburgh, there are lots of Barry stories that get told round the local sports rings.)

And who pushes 2nd graders?

Cheating = looking for an advantage = trying to win = I can handle.

Asshole = Asshole = die now you farkin fat fark farker
 
2007-07-11 02:32:31 PM
They do this at every sport or event, particularly if it's televised. And if you just make the sign at your seat, it's going to get taken away.

Barry Bonds invented steroids. No other baseball players used steroids before 1995. No pitchers ever used steriods. Barrys testicles have shrunken to the size of two asterisks. Get over yourselves.
 
2007-07-11 03:30:41 PM
This is clearly the biggest problem we will ever have to deal with in our lifetimes. Barry Bonds using steroids has forever scarred my faith in baseball, the true sport of kings. I am completely serious. Barry Bonds should be charged with war crimes for his sins against baseball. He has small testicles as a result of steroid use, and I will mock him for it. Everyone who supports him is far less intelligent then me, because I am a true baseball fan. Throw the ball back, lol.

\Who f*cking cares?
\\ASTERISK LOL I CLEVER *******
 
2007-07-11 03:48:51 PM
I still love the "Bonds Has Tiny Balls" one, with a picture of him holding two miniature baseballs between his thumb & index finger, that someone actually made for the Fenway series. Fox even put it on tv, albeit briefly.

Doesn't matter if the signs get taken away, because if it's caught on camera beforehand, mission accomplished.

\he *WILL* hit it at home, he doesn't have the balls to do it anywhere else. Probably literally.
\\and just remember, apologists, Bud Selig continues to flinch when he's asked if he'll be there. If that's not an indictment, I don't know what is....

I agree with you, but first they should mar that "holiest" of balls with a sharpie message along the lines of "Bonds is a cheating Assh*le" THEN THROW IT BACK! It would give Cooperstown quite the comeuppance.

Enuratique: with a sharpie message along the lines of "Bonds is a cheating Assh*le"

I think a large simple three line Vonnegutian asterisk would be better.
