What a nice thing to do.
This is really good. I think a lot of people have this perception that Bonds is a bad person, and it was largely created by the media.
He saw his father go through the ringer, so when he became a pro, he stayed distant. And if there is a group that circles the wagons well, it is the media. So the idea goes out that he is a jerk because he wont talk with the media. It gets pumped up and then bang, Bonds is “now” a bad person.
Then, the steroids saga comes along and the bad person is also a cheater, so there is a full onslaught. From the vitriol he gets, it would not surprise me if he voted Republican and the media held it against him. Im sure they used it against Clemens.
Very nice! Thank you, Barry.
