Hell of a time to be a professional sports fan

And I'm not just talking about the Red Sox laisez-faire approach to protecting a 14-game division lead.

The NBA has mobbed-up officials possibly fixing games.

The NFL has one of its marquee players accused of running a vicious blood sport. (Burn in hell, Michael Vick, burn in hell).

Jeez, Barry Bonds and Major League Baseball's look-the-other-way pursuit of Hank Aaron's homerun record looks like the feelgood story of the year when stacked up against the competition.

And in the NHL ... Do they still play professional hockey around these parts?

You forgot juicers riding in the Tour de France and I read yesterday golfers are on the 'roids too. Stick with the bowling, the last clean sport.

...and I forgot the NASCAR drivers with illegal modifications and whatnot.

Of course, I also heard that the pros sometimes shave a few ounces off those 16-lb balls.

I know you're not being too serious when you say this, but I'm a member of the PBA and can say that equipment goes through checks once money becomes a factor.

As for a golfer being on "the roids"... hell, the clubs have looked like they've been on steroids - look how big they've become, LOL!

Softball bums - last of the true sportsmen!

I know that I've run across this scenario before, but I still think it is the only conceivable one that could rehab Bonds' image - he hits homerun 754, walks off the field, and never swings another bat in anger.

It would be funnier if he hit #754 and then baseball suspended him for life, but that won't happen.

Don't say too many nice things about Barry Bonds, ugh!
